My husband has glaucoma and his pressure was fluctuating under his previous doctor. Dr. Harmon was recommended to us by a good friend. Dr. Harmon has gotten it under control. We feel greatful for having a wonderful, professional, truly caring doctor. He also has treated me although I don't have glaucoma. If you arrive early to an appointment and office isn't busy he'll take you early. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Harmon performed cataract surgery on both eyes. The surgery has caused a decline in my ability to see. He did not warn me about this risk before performing the surgeries.

I came just for a routine vision check, when Dr.Harmon pronounced a need for a laser iridotomy – prophylactic (for narrow angle glaucoma) surgical procedure. I was asked to repeat the tests in 3mo. Despite the same results, Dr.Harmon recommended surgery on both eyes to take place ASAP. Since I wasn’t satisfied with the received sketchy info, I decided to get 2nd opinion. Two other glaucoma experts disagreed with Dr.Harmon’s assessment – no surgery is necessary in my current condition.

I have been under Dr. Harmon's care since 2002 for cataracts and glaucoma related problems. He is an outstanding surgeon and a very caring doctor. I wish him a very long and healthy life so he can continue to help his patients.

Longtime patient but it is a factory designed to bill as many procedures as possible with long waits to see an optometrist first, then run tests, then finally Harmon for 90 seconds (as he juggles 3-4 rooms). The waits are increasingly unacceptable. If your times valuable, seek other options.

I love Dr. Harmon! I've been in his care for glaucoma for years now, and see him every few months. Before I see him, I see one of the other doctors in the office (it's a very busy office) who does all the tests. Then Dr. Harmon sees me, he reads the results, re-checks my pressure (so two doctors check my eye pressure every time I go) and talks with me. I feel very well cared for and have had two double surgeries (cataract plus glaucoma surgery) in each eye, and he is top of the line technically!

Both I and my friends have had excellent experiences with Dr. Harmon for glaucoma and cataract related issues. These are his specialties and he is committed to providing the absolute best care. He is conservative, knowledgeable and a great surgeon. I would say you could find no one better for cataract or glaucoma issues...He makes sure, if your vision is unstable before cataract surgery, that he tests and retests and tests again to get the proper lenses for excellent vision afterwards.

Dr Harmon was well recommended and He did not disappoint. The entire experience is top notch.extremely efficient without sacrificing that special human touch that sadly disappear when the doctor's practice become so big. The greatest experience I have with Dr Harmon is the positive feeling coming out of surgery. He is genuinely happy with the successful surgery and that positive feeling he was able to transcend to his patient. A truly warm and friendly doctor .
