I had cataract surgery with Dr. Rand. The R eye was fine, but when I went for my L eye, I was kept waiting 5 hours. (I should have left, but I was told I was next.) Afterward, my eye was blurry for 3 weeks and then I had double vision. I later discovered that Dr. Rand did not use the lens that we had discussed and that I wanted. I returned repeatedly (wait time averaged 2-3 hrs) and every time Dr. Rand had a different reason for the problem, but not a solution. The glasses prescription was wrong
We would like the opportunity to discuss this issue with you further, but since there is no name or contact information provided, we are unable to do so. Also, HIPPA privacy laws do not permit us to discuss this information in an open forum. Surely the concerns you point out do not reflect the practices of Rand Eye Institute. Please contact us at your earliest convenience so we may further look into the issue for you. Thank you.

Rushed factory environment. After waiting for hours, the doctor clearly didn't have time to listen to my concerns let alone answer my questions. I will be having my cataract surgery elsewhere.

I had my LASIK surgery done at Rand Eye Institute and my experience was remarkable. Initially I was nervous because I didn't know what to expect prior to the surgery, but the staff made me feel at ease with their comfort, knowledge and honesty throughout the whole process. Dr. Rand and his team took extensive measures to ensure that I would have vision to my greatest potential. No more thick glasses or contacts. Thank you Dr. Rand and staff for everything-love my new vision!
Dear Laura, Thank you for your kind comments about your experience at Rand Eye Institute. We take pride in making all of our patients feel at ease and we always do our best to make sure everyone we see benefits from our personalized approach to vision correction. It is wonderful to be free of glasses and contact lenses.

This place is a factory that was more interested in billing me and my insurance than taking care of me.
