Simply amazing! Finally a team of docs who listen to what is really going on with me! I am so thankful for the time and attention to the health of my eyes!

I saw 4 ophthalmologists before seeing Dr Bowden. He was the first one to listen to my complaints of severe dry eye. By treating it aggressively, he halted the destruction of the glands which supply oil to the tear film. If I had not been treated by him, these glands would have been destroyed beyond repair. My dry eye condition is dramatically better and I cannot thank Dr Bowden enough. I would recommend him very highly to anyone needing treatment for their eye problems.

Amazing staff and phenomenal physicians!! Yes there may be a wait at times, but when I'm in the Doctors chair I may as well be the only person in their office! The bedside manner and compassion from the staff are off the charts. I have seen almost all of the physicians in one way or another during my relationship with Bowden Eye. I've never left disappointed or uneducated on my condition. I have had Botox, general eye exams and dry eye relief thanks to the brilliant docs at Bowden Eye. My next s

Dr. Bowden did LASIK on both eyes and I am 20/20 in both eyes. I love him and his office! He is an amazing doctor.

Dr. Bowden is by far the best medical professional I have ever encountered. He is genuinely concerned with not only the reason for the visit, but also in taking the time to address other issues that can arise at a later date and informing you of your best options. His staff is very detailed and organized in assisting you in your plan of care. I am very satisfied with my experiences here and highly recommend anyone to visit him for your eye care.
