Dr. Clary is such a fine doctor that I pout if we have to see another doctor in the practice - though they are great doctors also. Dr. Clary has operated on my husband's eyes several times and now he only wears glasses to read. Such a change since my husband has worn glasses full time since he was 6 years old. He's now 66. There's a wait and trust me, you'll wonder if you'll ever get to see the doctor. But, if you want the best - you want Dr. Clary.

Highly recommended. Dr. Clary fixed my nearsightedness with the use of PRK surgery recommended by him. Baseline i was -4.00 on both eyes and now see 20/20. Excellent staff, extremely friendly personality, and listens to any questions I had.

Dr. Clary was very helpful in helping me decide what procedure would be best for me and would help me obtain my goals. He explained the pros and cons of each procedure. He took the time to explain what each procedure would entail and what results I could expect. He preformed my lens replacement and everything went well. I took my kids to Carowinds and for the first time in 30 years I was able to ride the water rides without my eyes burning from the water getting behind my contacts

I had Advanced Surface Treatment performed one month ago and am seeing 20/15 already! I can see every leaf on every tree without contacts or glasses!! I can see the clock across the room in the morning without having to fumble around for my glasses. Dr. Clary is knowledgeable, walked me step by step through the procedure as it happened, and was confident without being cocky. Everyone I encountered was friendly and professional, but also down to earth. I felt like a person, not just a patient.

I have always enjoyed excellent vision, but I hated when I needed reading glasses for everything. Dr. Clary recommended I receive the Tecnis Multifocal lens. While I was a little apprehensive at first, he answered all my questions & his friendly personality put me at ease. His staff, especially Janet in the surgery department, were very helpful & friendly. It's amazing! I can now see far off and to read without glasses! So thankful I made that choice.

Very pleased with my cataract surgery results. One day after my surgery, I can see 20/15! Amazing results. Dr. Clary is very professional, kind and care gentleman. I would recommend him highly.

Dr. Clary is very professional. He is a very caring and sensitive doctor and surgeon. He has performed the cataract removal and lens implants in both eyes, and I am very pleased with results.

I had cataract surgery with Dr. Clary, and I see better now than at any point in my life! I have always worn glasses for my astigmatism. Dr. Clary suggested I get the Tecnis Toric implant lenses to correct this. Now I see 20/15 without glasses. How about that!
