Patient Comments (3)

May be the best glaucoma specialist in the area. He diagnosed and treated my problem when three other doctors couldn't. I have absolute trust and respect for Dr. Farris. Would highly recommend you see him for an opinion if you have glaucoma or any other eye disease. His staff is wonderful as well.

Overall: OK. As a glaucoma specialist: probably very good. As a general ophthalmologist: good. Personality: polite, but brusque; some may even find him rushed. Conducts examination thoroughly. Answers most questions. Would do what is right for you.

Poor first visit experience. He appeared disinterested in my concerns answers were very short and quick felt rushed. Would definitely not recommend or return to see him.
