Dr. Flicker did my cataract surgery this past August 2018. I couldn't be happier with not only the result but with Dr. Flicker's care and expertise. Through the entire procedure he explained as he went along each procedure and what he was doing. He is so easy to talk to, he listens to your questions and concerns, and makes you feel comfortable and confident. His staff at the surgical center was also great, so friendly and caring, always asking are you OK.

Dr. Flicker and the South Shore Eye Care practice are great. I was recommenced to him as I was having some vision issues. He determined that I had cataracts in both eyes. He gave me all the options and elected to do the surgery on my left eye which was a huge success. The procedure was painless and his calmness throughout and what I would feel during the procedure made it more reassuring. The staff at South Shore are really nice and I highly recommend going here for all of your vision needs.

I just recently had laser cataract surgery on both my eyes. Right from the beginning, Dr. Flicker put me at ease. His calm demeanor and expertise immediately eased my mind.The surgery center staff were wonderful and they all were so, so nice. Dr. Flicker talked to me the whole way asking me how I was doing and one of the nurses held my hand. I knew all my concerns were listened to and dealt with in a compassionate, easy going way that eased my mind. Thank you so much for everything. Tricia Porr

I was very nervous about having my eye repaired. Dr. Flicker came highly recommended from my primary care physician. Dr Flicker and his great staff put me at ease. He discovered that I was legally blind in my right eye. After my procedure about a week ago, my sight has been restored and I can see without glasses. Thank you Dr. Flicker and your fantastic staff. I will definitely return and have them repair my left eye in the future. Veronica S. N. Babylon N.Y.

Who would have thought my 22 year old son would have a problem with his retina? On a routine visit for eye care, Dr. Jason Flicker spotted several holes/tares in my son's retina. He immediately recommended a consultation with a Retina Specialist which resulted in laser surgery to repair the holes, tares, and weakened areas in the retina. Dr. Flicker's intervention saved my son significant eye problems in the future. We are so grateful.

Dr. Flicker not only removed my cataracts but put in new lens that corrected my vision. Now I don't need glasses for reading or driving. Now at work I can work on the computer without any aids. He did excellent work because I am now glasses free .

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Flicker. My wife & I have been his patients for years. In the past few months I have had to laser surgeries with intraocular lenses inserted. My eyesight is now excellent. I do not have to wear glasses anymore except for sunglasses. He is a caring physician always explaining treatment in detail. In fact, every doctor in that practice is excellent.

I have been a patient of Dr. Flicker for 8 years. During that time he has performed successful cataract surgeries on both eyes and generally provided regular check-ups and care. He has always provided the best professional service and does not disappoint. I recommend Dr. Flicker to all my family and friends.

I had gone for a routine eye exam and Dr. Flicker decided he wanted to check my carotid arteries in my neck. Thanks to Dr. Flicker, it was discovered that I had a slight blockage in my right carotid artery. I made an appointment with my cardiologist and he started me on medication. If it wasn't for Dr. Flicker I could have gone years without knowing.

Dr. Flicker performed laser corrective surgery for me five years ago. I have been in his care since and have only experience the most professional care in this time. My vision is 20/20 and I couldn't be happier with the experience.
