in Vero Beach, Fl
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.

Dr O'Brien treated me for many years and even after we moved out of state we continued to travel back for our appts. The travel eventually became too difficult and reluctantly switched care to a closer Dr in our new area. Dr O'Brien will be dearly missed.
