Dr. Thomas Dempsey, OD
My goal is to treat every patient in my offices as if they were a member of my family. I provide the highest level of care combined with the best technology available. This ensures my patients are treated to the best eye care around. I have been in Colchester for 18 years and Hebron for 10 and am very proud of the reputation I have built in both communities.

Patient Comments (1)
in Colchester, CT |
I had a sudden redness and extreme pain in my right eye. Had other facial pain also. Made urgent appt. with Dr Dempsey and he told me to come right in. He examined me and sent me straight to an Ophthalmologist as part of Hartford Hospital and asked for ENT consult and MRI. He had accurately diagnosed orbital cellulitis, which can be fatal. I was admitted to Hartford Hospital and placed on numerous super antibiotics and steroids IV. Turns out I also had Pseudomonus. He saved my life, literally.
