We have been patients of Dr. O'Brien's for 20 years. He is extremely professional, talented and personable. My wife had lasik surgery by Dr. O'Brien 20 years ago and still has great eyesight.

I always look forward to seeing Dr. O ‘Brien for my routine visits. He and his staff are always warm and welcoming. He takes the time to examine my dry eyes and make recommendations for improvement. I am very glad that I was referred to Dr. O’Brien and New Vision Eye Center by Dr. Kris Smith.
