As a Professional Photographer for 34 years, my eyesight is extremely important. When my eyesight became compromised, it was very unnerving. Dr. Cunningham guided my wife and me step by step through each procedure as he worked with determination to restore my eyesight. Besides being an amazing doctor and surgeon, he is also an incredibly compassionate person! I have recommended Dr. Cunningham to family, friends and clients. Ihighly reccommend him to you too!

If you are looking for a knowledgeable doctor who inspires confidence, is personable, and genuinely cares about his patients, then Doctor Cunningham is for you. It can be bit worrying having to see a doctor for eye trouble, but Doctor Cunningham puts you at ease as soon as he walks in the door, with his friendly demeanor, and confident manner. He does a thorough exam, and thoroughly explains his diagnosis, what to do, and what to expect. He's also respectful and patient. He's a real gem.
