I was referred to Dr. Ireland as a result of emergency situation. She and her staff are extremely competent and compassionate. From the time I walked through the front door, I felt as though everyone I met was very helpful. My exam was very thorough. Dr. Ireland took the time to answer my questions and put me more at ease about my situation. Although I didn’t require surgery, Dr. Ireland referred me to a specialist who was able to see me immediately. I am very thankful!

Dear Dr Ireland and Staff – Today I had my second cataract surgery. I was treated with respect and professionally by ever person I encountered at your eye center. I was nervous Tuesday and soon learned there was nothing to fear. Everyone was amazing. Today I had the second eye done. Once again, amazing. More importantly, you have given me my life back. You have no idea the impact this has had on me. I lost my independence! I can drive and I can see everything I was missing. My family’s faces, the flowers, vivid color, how bad the lawn looks and my beautiful dogs. My dirty house, I had no idea! I can read! No words can say thank you enough for the gift of sight that you have given me, thank you for the ability to see everything I was missing. You all played a role in this process! You are all amazing! Bless you all.

From the moment I entered the building it was clear that this is a busy practice so I was pleasantly surprised at the personal, attentive care I observed and received. Not only is Dr. Ireland a qualified surgeon, as a partner in St. Luke’s, she models her approach to her patients to the staff and the result is a caring, attentive professional experience. Highly recommend!

I have had annual visual checkups for all my adult life and Dr. Ireland was the FIRST to diagnose some problems, including increasing internal pressure in my eyes. She clearly explained the problem/solution in an understandable way without the usual medical gibberish.

Very happy with this whole experience. Had bilateral cataract surgery within the last month. Everyone is caring and professional. Practice runs on time like a well oiled machine. Dr. Ireland took as much time as needed to address my concerns. She was very detailed in describing the options and probable outcomes of each. I highly recommend this practice! Don't wait.
