Patient Comments (3)
in West Jordan, UT |
I have been seen by Dr. Mehr for more than 4 years. His bedside manner is amazing, his staff is friendly and he has helped clear my vision! I highly recommend his services
in Salt Lake City, UT |
When he was working on my eyes, he blamed me for moving my eye when the laser hit it. Now I have a little void moving around when I am looking at things. The second surgery he did blinded me and of course that was my fault also. After a second surgery I went blind in my left eye. Later he discovered it was the eye drops that made me blind. It went high enough to almost bling me permanently. I think the pressure was up around a 4s5. He felt it was my fault not his.0

I have been very impressed with the entire operation, and with Dr. Mehr in particular. I could not be more pleased, and do heartily recommend him to anyone who needs excellent eye care. He saved my wife's vision, and improved mine.
