Norwalk, CT |
Excellent doctor, communicates very well, personable, skillful, always available and effective. I've seen many ophtalmologists in the past - Dr. Libre is the best.
in New Canaan, CT |
He misdiagnosed my eye issues. Said I had early glaucoma, that my corneas were thinner than normal, that one of my optic nerves was damaged Performed laser procedure to open the vent holes in my cornea and prescribed drops to keep my eye pressure down.Said I had early stage cataracts...On next visit, suggested doing a more extensive laser procedure on the vent holes and removing the lenses in my .in my eyes. Second opinion proved him wrong on all of his diagnosis...STAY AWAY mercenary!
in Westport, CT |
I am a professional photographer and had specific questions about color, refraction and the correction he would recommend. He answered my questions completely in a way I could comprehend. His recommendations were right on. The surgeries were painless and quick. I am THRILLED to not have to wear glasses any longer.
