Dr. Coney is the best. I can't say anything more. I love him for everything he's done for my eyes. He fixed my retina. He is wonderful and all the staff is so friendly.

Dr Coney is very receptive to the needs of his patients. He tries to involve you on what you want while recommending what he thinks is best based off his experience and others with the same conditions.

Referred due to sudden loss of vision in left eye. Dr. Coney found retinal detachment and scheduled surgery retina was found to have five tears and was reattached. Several weeks later I had a partial detachment Dr. Coney found in follow-up. He was unable to operate immediately and scheduled with Dr. Novak who reattached the retina and placed a buckle on the eye. Vision is not perfect due to scar tissue. There have been no further problems and I see Dr. Coney at regular intervals to forestall any further problems. He is always attentive and takes his time with me although busy with his practice.

Dr. Coney is very skilled and compassionate. I had a severe retinal tear in my right eye, and lost sight in the eye. Dr. Coney explained everything. Because of the severity of the tear, I prepared myself that I may not regain sight in that eye. Thanks to Dr. Coney’s surgical skill, I have regained almost 20/20 sight in my eye. Dr. Coney’s staff is friendly and professional. I am extremely pleased and grateful. I highly recommend Dr. Coney.

My optometrist recommended Dr. Coney to me after an initial examination for new glasses that showed irregularities in my right eye. I acted on his advice & my journey began with Dr. Coney and thank goodness for him. Unknown to me, I was legally blind in my right eye due to a damaged retina. Surgery was necessary to correct my issues. 1 1/2 years later, vision in my right eye is no longer just "gray" but very clear. I'm able to see again & I so grateful for Dr. Coney's expertise & kindness. Dr. Coney was excellent as he clearly explained using images of my eye what needed to be done to help restore my vision as much as possible. Retina Associates, their office staff & nurses were all very kind & always efficient in our phone calls or visits to them. I highly recommend Dr. Coney & his staff for any eye issues that need correction. Thank you again, Dr. Coney.

I had an appointment with Dr. Coney today and as usual he was very pleasant. He was very busy, a great Dr. is always busy, so I had about 15 to 20 minute wait. I wait longer than that for my regular checkup with my family Dr. I would recommend him to anyone with an eye issue.

I was referred to Retinal Associates of Cleveland on an emergency basis because of a sudden loss of vision due to bleeding in my eye. Because I already have very low vision in both eyes, I was frightened, especially since the loss of vision was in my better eye. Dr. Coney and staff were kind, reassuring, thorough, knowledgeable and skilled. The office has the latest equipment and Dr. Coney and staff explained each step along the way. I subsequently needed surgery to remove the blood from my eye. Again, on the day of the surgery, I felt I was in the best of hands. Since the surgery I am now able to see as I did before. I am so thankful not only that I can again see, but for the kindness and support I was shown along the way!
