Dr. Van Norman has always been very attentive. He keeps up with the underlying disease that causes my vision problems and manages everything beyond my expectations. I have been a patient here for nearly 10 years and have never had a complaint.

I would highly recommend Dr. VanNorman for any type of eye surgery. He did cataract surgery on both of my eyes and I came out with 20.20 vision on both eyes. His office and staff is very professional. Dr. VanNorman is very passionate and he wants to help you make the right decision for your eyes. You will have your surgery at the Eye Surgery Center. The staff is great and very friendly.
