I took my daughter to see Dr LaRocca at 14 months of age to have her eyes checked because she had a strange look she would give when something got close to her face. He told me it was a "phase" and her eyes were fine. I later took her to Dr Davis Reese in Wellesley and he prescribed her glasses. She has a strong prescription, 4.5 on both sides, and wears glasses 100% of the time. She is 6 now.

I had to take my 13 month old son to see this doctor for a blocked tear duct and both times I saw him he was rude, mean and not good with my son AT ALL! He rolled his eyes when I asked questions about my son's possible surgery and treated my son as if he'd never worked with a child in his life. I don't know what baby likes to be held down and have his eyes poked at but he made me feel like my son's squirming was annoying and not common. He shouldn't work with kids if that's how he acts.

Dr. Larocca has terrible bed side manners. Some of his comments and reactions to my questions still haunt me. My surgery was not 100% successful and he failed to believe that at first. We finally came to an agreement at 2 months post op. On my last apt. I was refracted by one of his younger employees. I ended up with a wrong prescription and refused to go back. I paid out of pocket for my optometrist and now my glasses are perfect.
