Dr. Carlin and staff are amazing! I had LASIK done in May of 2017. The staff was helpful, and explained everything to me. Dr. Carlin was caring the day of my procedure. He and his staff helped to put me at ease when I was nervous. I am very happy with my results. I am free from contacts and glasses for the first time in 25 years. Thanks Dr Carlin and staff for an excellent experience.

Very pleasant. Listened to my concerns. This was the 3rd or 4th Eye Care Professional I had consulted regarding excessive tearing in my eye. Dr. Carlin did tests no other Eye Care Professional had done and came to a conclusion for further evaluation and treatment plan very quickly. I have already spent over $500 in prescription medications that did not help my condition and I feel if the appropriate tests had been done I could have avoided this expense. So happy to find Dr. Richard Carlin.

He was wrong about everything that was wrong with my aunt's eye... Didn't do cataract, watch glaucoma or deal with her dry eyes. Don't go here...the doctors are really bad.
