This is a gem of a practice comprised of wonderful, knowledgeable people. Dr. Libre's philosophy meshed perfectly with mine, which was very refreshing after having seen a different ophthalmologist who was quite dismissive of my concerns. I also saw Dr. Oren, who is terrific too.

I recently had cataract surgery with Dr. Libre and I am thrilled with the results. We spent time discussing the procedure and various lens implant options and Dr Libre wanted me to be comfortable with my choices. My optometrist at my aftercare appointment was amazed at how wonderful my eye looked less than 24 hours after. I highly recommend Dr Libre

Dr. Libre helped me get my (serious) glaucoma under control, and then walked me through the pros and cons of cataract surgery. I went ahead, and he performed the operation two years ago. I had been nearsighted since childhood, and was unable to drive at night. Now I can see nearly perfectly, and can drive in any conditions. I found him to be skilled and professional, and a great communicator. I recommend him unreservedly. His assistants and office personnel are also quite good.

I have a history of eye problems and lots of experience with eye doctors. Dr. Libre was recommended by another specialist. He and his staff clearly understand glaucoma and its treatment. They are very easy to deal with and always concerned about patient comfort. Dr. Libre is obviously one of the best at what he does.

My cataract procedure was great from beginning to end. Dr. Libre took the time to review my situation and personal details before advising me on how to proceed. His personal approach led him to discover a previously undiagnosed illness that was remedied before my procedure, The procedure was painless and I was back on my feet and seeing great immediately.

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!

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.
