Care Philosophy

I feel it is an honor and a blessing to care for and serve each and every patient. I love what I do. Patients with crossed eyes experience an extremely thorough and ongoing detailed assessment. We always make sure we have exhausted every other option before recommending surgery. If surgery is needed, we use the most up-to-date outpatient techniques including minimally invasive surgery and adjustable sutures to bring their eyes back into the most normal and physiologic appearance and function possible with care and precision. We are available 24/7.

I lived 23 years with eye alignment issues. Dr. McDonnell fixed those issues with 1 surgery and now people cannot believe how perfect my eyes are. Dr. McDonnell walked me through every step of this surgery and checked in on my the following days after the surgery. I felt like I was Dr. McDonnell's only patient with the care I was receiving. Dr. McDonnell is a smart and caring doctor who can really help when it comes to lazy eyes. I wish I didn't wait so long. Everyone should visit him.

Dr. McDonnell did corrective surgery on both of my eyes in 2004. I have referred several people to this awesome, amazing and gifted man. To date my surgery is still corrective.

Dr. McDonnell performed the most thorough examination I have ever had with any doctor. He was able to find a solution for my double vision following cataract surgery. I would recommend him to anyone who has a vision problem that has not been able to be solved by another doctor. Dr. McDonnell leaves no stone unturned in his quest for a solution.
