    Patient Comments (15)
    Dr Chopra was so reassuring and professional. His work made such a difference as I was in danger of imminent narrow angle closure in both eyes and his treatment significantly reduced my risk for glaucoma.
    I have been a patient of Dr. Chopras for many years. Our entire family trusts him; he treats both my parents and a sibling as well for both glaucoma related issues and cataracts. I would absolutely recommend him and the entire Doheny team.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Chopra for over three years. He has been treating me for low pressure glaucoma. Recently he has done my cataract surgery. I have been so happy with the outcome of my cataract surgery. While Dr. Chopra is always professional and courteous, he is also very approachable, patient, and friendly. He is a very good listener and always answers any questions I have. I have also been impressed with his staff who are very helpful and seem genuinely happy to work in there.

    After much research on specialists I selected Dr. Chopra and I am glad I did. In addition to being educated and extremely skilled in his area of expertise, he is well informed and engaged in the latest research. He uses that information to further aid not only his patients, but to ophthalmology patients as a whole. He always takes time to answer my questions ands makes me feel at ease. There are many specialist in my immediate area, but I travel to Pasadena for Dr. Chopra; he is the best.

    Dr. Chopra was highly recommended to me and I first went to see him a few years ago because of serious concerns due to my glaucoma. He was professional, yet warm and caring. He took the time to explain my condition in detail and the best treatment for optimal eye health. He was my surgeon for two cataract surgeries, which were both highly successful and pain free! He is an amazing surgeon and an awesome individual and I highly recommend him for anyone with glaucoma issues. He's the best!

    Very good tech backup and tests They take the time necessary and Doctor has a very good (bedside manner) and answered my questions
    in Alhambra, CA |
    Dr Chopra and Doheny Eye Institute , now affiliated with UCLA, were a "God Send". My father had very quickly lost most of his eye sight to glaucoma by the time we finally found Dr. Chopra, although he couldn't restore the lost vision he went above and beyond to stave the progression and maintain what little sigh my father has left. Dr. Chopra is a very busy doctor and rightfully so, he is an expert in the field but we could always feel his genuine concern and passion. I would recommend Dr Chopra

    I like that everything is explained, if I don't understand something, all I have to do is ask.

    I recommend Dr. Vikas Chopra as the best Dr in Glaucoma Surgery. He cares and took time explaining non Invasive Glaucoma Surgery. During and after the surgery I felt no discomfort and my eye pressure is normal! J.Gauenti
    in Rosemead, CA |
    I felt down, depressed and without hope until I talked to Dr Vikas Chopra. Before the surgery He made me feel I was in good hands by explaining how minimal the touch for glaucoma surgery is. After the surgery and Dr Chopra's care, I have not needed another surgery. I have recommended Dr Vikas Chopra to my family and friends. I recommend Dr Vikas Chopra. Manuel T. G.

    In 2012 Both my eye pressure was 28 when Dr. Paulina Han (Chopra's College student) in Rosemead sent me to. "The Best Doctor in the Newer Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery". Dr. Vikas Chopra. Post Surgery every six months Dr Chopra see me to monitor my eyes. Since my surgery my eye pressure have being Normal! I am thankful I found Han and Chopra they are so considerate and care for us human beings. I recommend with the bottom of my heart Dr. Vikas Chopra. Martha Robson.
    in San Gabriel, CA |
    has been his glaucoma patient for about 10 years. very impatient and does not like to answer any questions. Always in a rush and has little compassion for patient's needs. I am looking for another alternative and do not understand why he is with Doheney at all, Will write to his institution to fill my recent complaints.
