I had cataract surgery with Dr. Brass. I have been wearing glases for 60 year, and I have never seen better. Everything looks like it's in technicolor! The colors are so bright, and I can see without glasses.

Dr. Brass performed laser cataract surgery on one of my eyes and will be doing the other eye soon. He cares about his patients and takes the time to educate them on what to expect.

Dr. Brass performed laser cataract surgery on me and I am euphoric. I had 20/80 in my left eye, and 20/30 in my right eye before surgery. Now I have 20/20 in my left eye and 20/15 in my right eye. My colors are brighter, I cant thank him enough, honestly. It's life changing. Absolutely a great person and Doctor

I first contacted Dr Brass in early 2018. I had a very dense cataract in my right eye. Being a typical guy, I put this off as long as possible. Dr Brass and his staff took their time and explained the procedure in terms I could understand. The surgical procedure was totally painless and went very smoothly. I just had my left eye done on January 29th. Again same outstanding results. I would highly recommend Dr Brass. Don't hesitate. You will love your new look on life!!

Excellent experience!! I just wish there were more than five stars as I would like to recommend Doctor Brass to everyone with a vision problem. I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes and laser correction for astigmatism. The results are unbelievable. I am in my seventies and my eyesight is now like it was when I was much younger. The procedures were explained in detail so that I knew what to expect and the results far exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Doctor Brass!

I have Fuch's Dystrophy. Dr. Brass did my cataract, and I can see 20/25 right eye and 20/40 left eye. I will not a corneal transplant! Things haven't been this bright for quite a long time. I should have had cataract surgery sooner!

I could not be happier. It's a miracle. I can see near in my right eye and distance in my left eye. The eyes were never swollen, red or painful. I was perfect about using my drops. Dr. Brass was wonderful. I would recommend Dr. and his office to anyone.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Brass. He is one of the finest doctors I’ve had the privilege of knowing. He explained the procedure in layman’s terms so I thoroughly understood. He listened to what my issues were and addressed my every concern. He has a great bedside manner and such a likable person. I would highly recommend him for any eye related procedure. In addition, his office staff and surgery center were wonderful as well.. LINDA E

I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Brass. Both eyes were done 11 days apart. What started out as a scary thing turned into a positive experience. Every step of the way went well. Just had my last post-opp appointment. I couldn't be happier. After many years of wearing corrective lenses for both near and far, I only wear cheaters for close up.

Dr Brass has a way of looking at you when he's speaking that makes you feel like you are his only patient. He has a calm and soothing manner and explains every step of what he's doing. I was apprehensive about cataract surgery, especially since I am only in my 50's. Dr Brass took away all that apprehension. Dr Brass couldn't have been more reassuring that I would achieve an excellent outcome. One week out from the second eye and I am seeing 20/20 in each eye. The world is shiny and new again!

I am very pleased with the treatment that I have received from Dr. Brass and his team over many years. I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes with excellent results--it makes such a great difference! All my questions were thoroughly and patiently answered, the pre-surgery and post-surgery care could not be better. While I did not need to do so, I was impressed by the offer to contact Dr. Brass any time after the surgery on his cell phone. I have been treated by this practice for se

I have some complicated vision issues which made me very anxious and reluctant to seek help, finally I chose Dr. Brass and am so grateful and glad that I did. He was so confident that he could help me, very supportive and patient in explaining everything, so I chose to go ahead with cataract surgery in both eyes. It was such a successful, life changing experience for me, I have not seen this well in many years! He and his staff were wonderful to work with, I highly recommend him.
