After having vision problems for 72 years I have never had such an explanation of my condition but Dr. Teather fully explained my problem. Amazing Dr. with great knowledge and great bed side manner. Very highly recommend. Also great staff. Carl Jess

Office staff is completely inept. Don't waste your time.

Dr. Teather was great with my autistic three year old. He's not warm and fuzzy, but he knows what he's doing. Explained everything in great detail . Wasn't put off by my son who cried the entire exam. I would definitely recommend him.

I am an adult who needed strabismus surgery for double vision following 3 botched cataract surgeries elsewhere. Staff was efficient, friendly, very competent. Dr. Teather explained everything fully & was very patient with me, a terrified patient. If not for this gifted surgeon, I would have been left with double vision so severe that I needed glasses in the shower. The office is very child friendly, too. We are very blessed to have found Dr. Teather, and we highly recommend him and send our

My son had been a patient of his for 5 years now. He has performed eye surgery on him, with a fantastic outcome! Sometimes his bedside manner is lacking, but I think that his experience and knowledge more than make up for it!! I competley trust him with my sons condition!!
