She is a terrible eye Dr. Talked me into a Toric len implant. I have been having eye pain since the surgery five years ago.

I went to Dr. Marilu O'Byrne to inquire about Lasik surgery for my poor eyesight. I'm 45 years old and she told me I had cataracts in both eyes. I know it's rare but definitely possible. She told me I needed surgery and it would cost up to $3200 per eye. I believed her but got another opinion. The 2nd doctor told me I didn't even have a hint of cataracts and he didn't know why O'Byrne told me I did. What I have is normal aging sight for my age. He told me he could do surgery but try glasses first which is what I'm doing. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DR.

Good eye doctor who has plenty patients so sometimes it is hard to get an appointment quickly. She did my lens implants and now I have 20/20 vision again.

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.

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.
