Slidell, LA |
She did my PRK surgery and I was a -10 in my left eye and -8.75 in my right eye and now I have perfect vision. Did I mention that I use to wear coke bottles as a kid.
in Picayune, MS |
She did medically necessary blephropladty on my eyelids as they were hindering my view. After surgery I noticed that she had not done the come surgery and did not remove the fat pads on the outer corners of my upper lids. She gave all kinds of other excuses for why I was having problems. It has been a year and now it has gotten worse and I have to fight my insurance company to have the procedure redone because not done properly by Obyrne in the beginning. Will NEVER recommend her.

Dr. O'Byrne recommended the Toric lens implant. Now I have many problems that started immediately after. I feel the lens ALL the time. I am unable to concentrate because of the discomfort. I found out that this procedure is unsafe for some people. She did not check my chart or ask questions that would have showed this was unnecessary for me.
in Covington, LA |
She recommended a Toric lens implant. She said I would not need glasses for distance & can get readers for close up. She did did not review possible risks. This did not work for me. I have a constant pain in my left eye, headaches, distorted vision. She said you are straining your eye, you need to wear your glasses all the time. She did try pills & drops that did not help my problem. She said that's all she can do go to another doctor.

Dr. O'Byrne and staff were pleasant and friendly. My only suggestion is with collection of co-pays from clients with vision coverage. There was an error made when verifying my coverage resulting in an over-payment. Getting in touch with the office took multiple attempts and am still waiting on a refund some 45 days later.

Excellent Doctor. I had cataract surgery on both my eyes. Her lens placement was excellent!
