My father went to Dr Tyson for cataract surgery. He neglected to check him for glaucoma before doing the surgery and blinded him in his right eye! Would not recommend! Awful!!

Dr. Tyson is the best eye doctor any patient could wish for! I was continuously given the wrong diagnosis and wrong prescription eye glasses by other eye doctors, until I met Dr. Tyson. He was God sent! He gave me the correct prescription that took care of all the eye issues that I had for years. I have had him as my eye Doctor for a while and will recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly and very caring expert in eye care. He is simply the best!!!

Having Glaucoma is no fun. Dr. Tyson did a surgery on my eyes that now I don't have to use drops. I am so happy with the results. Happy not to have to be tied to using those drops constantly. Thanks Dr. Tyson for a great job and for helping me. You are the best thing that Vineland has to offer, for sure. Best Doctor.

I have been going to Dr. Tyson since 1999. He is a top quality doctor with a warm and caring personality.

On or about 2000-2002, I was recovering from an accident. I had heard about laser eye surgery, but wasn't sure if I was a candidate. A member of my family was already a patient of Dr. Tyson. I personally spoke w/Dr. Tyson about the surgery and felt comfortable that I was in good hands. Dr. Tyson explains the procedure and then lets you ask as many questions as you want. The surgery was flawless. Dr. Tyson is not only a premier expert in his field, he's a superb person as well.
