    I haven't had an eye exam in 20 years. My wife has been a patient of Dr. Horn for many years since Dr. Horn performed cataract surgery on her mother. My eye sight has worsened over the past 5 years- especially night vision & reading most normal size print. Dr. Horn was very thorough with my exam & suggested Symfony multifocal lens & cataract removal. Life changing. No complications. Exceptional care. I can see again & its only been one week since my last surgery. Highly recommend!

    I had a disastrous experience with Dr. Horn a couple of years ago. A cataract surgery which he performed on me went wrong, and I soon suffered a detached retina. I've lost most of the vision in that eye, despite several surgeries with other ophthalmologists who tried to save my eye. He was brusque and arrogant throughout my ordeal, and I can't say enough about how I regret putting myself in his hands. If you value your eyesight, steer clear.

    in Nashville, TN |
    I have been a patient of Dr. Horn for over ten years. His work has changed my life. I have had severe vision problems from an early age. At that time, he performed a procedure that radically improved my vision and enhanced my quality of life. He has also treated other issues. Recently he conducted cataract surgery. For the first time in my life I have 20/20 vision. I no longer wear glasses or contact lens. I am thankful for his expertise and care. I truly trust him to give me vision for life!

    My husband and I can't find adequate words to express our appreciation to Dr. Horn and his staff. We both had complicated cataract surgeries and Dr. Horn took the time to make sure all our vision issues were addressed. He truly cared more about getting the best possible results for us than we did for ourselves. We both are now glasses free after having worn glasses since early childhood! We both have the best vision we have ever had in our lives! The entire staff is wonderful and we consider eac

    From the minute I picked up the phone to schedule an appointment, to my last visit has been nothing but exceptional service. I had cataracts removed and my lenses replaced with upgraded lenses (multi-focal lenses). I no longer have to wear glasses which I needed to see up close and far away. What a freedom that is!!! My eyesight is better than 20/20 at most distances and up close. Dr. Horn is a dry eye specialist and took a lot of time correcting my dry eyes. He is he Best!
