PATIENT REVIEWS

Sarah W.

I went to Focus Family Eyecare because it was very close to my house and thus convenient. I was pleasantly surprised, however by the extraordinary treatment I received there. Dr. Mardia Ahmed is hands down the most attentive and informed optometrist I have ever seen, and I've been having regular eye care visits since I was a child. I am - for example - finally having my extreme dry eye issues taken seriously, and was presented with several treatment options. I am thrilled to have such a capable and enthusiastic provider and am feeling optimistic for the first time in literally decades. I highly recommend you call and make an appointment. Rachel, who works in the office, is super sweet and will get you taken care of!

When I went for an eye exam Dr. Ahmed noticed some possible signs of Glaucoma. She had me come back for testing to monitor the difference. I was pretty scared to be honest. I am now on drops. She is in the process of taking care of some scar tissue from some old eye surgery. She was very positive and said “We got this”. My daughter and I are both her patients. I am confident knowing she is in our corner! She is truly there to help you.

I could write a page long review, but I’ll simply say that this was hands down the best experience I’ve ever had at the eye doctor and I’ve been going to eye doctors for 28 years. Dr. Ahmed took the time to sit down and really evaluate my eyes (I had Lasik surgery that has gone bad and was in a state of panic because I didn’t know why my vision was getting worse by the day) She explained everything she was doing and then explained exactly what that meant for my eye health. She came up with a detailed treatment plan to get me back to normal all while providing these services at a price that is more than affordable (I don’t have vision insurance so out of pocket cost is a big concern). This is the first time I’ve ever truly felt that a doctor wanted to do everything they could to help me. I’ll be a returning customer for years.
