Patient Comments (3)
in Montclair, NJ |
On Sunday of Labor Day weekend I had vitreous detachment that my ophthalmologist said had resulted in a retinal tear. He contacted Dr. Vallar to see if he could perform emergency laser surgery. Dr. Vallar agreed to meet me at his office that Sunday, where he performed the laser surgery. I was very grateful that he took time off on a holiday weekend to perform this urgent procedure. I cannot recommend Dr. Vallar highly enough.

I felt that Dr. Vallar really cares about my eye health. He returned my call when I had experienced troubling symptoms. His expertise and kindness are a very special combination of traits! Thank you, Dr. Vallar

Had a Vitrectomy performed by him in 2012. The day after the surgery, he flew to a convention as did the other doctor in the office. When I had complications and extraordinary pain two days later, I called his office and service several times only to be told that he wasn't answering his page. It took 48 hours for the covering doctor to call back. Today I still wonder, had I been seen immediately when the pain and inflammation happened post surgery, whether I might've had a better outcome.
