I referred a patient from my office to see the optometrist at Thompson optics for a specialty contact lens fitting . The patient was suffering from a condition called Keratoconus. They offered him scleral lenses. The patient now has very good vision, I am very happy for my patient. I also thank Thompson Optics staff for the great work, service and patient care they offered.
My eye story started about 20 years ago when I started losing vision but couldn't find contacts or glasses to fix it through my family eye doctor I visited about 15 eye doctors before being diagnosed with severe keratoconus. It was very stressful not knowing enough about my eye disease and having no-one taking the time to explain it. Fast forward to 4 years ago after I got my first corneal transplant and got referred to Thompson optics to try to get Vision out of my eye post transplant they took me under their wings and no matter how many times I needed to unexpectedly see them during my first scleral lens experience they always welcomed me with compassion and understanding.I was very unsure of scleral lenses because one doctor at a different eye clinic fit me wrong and we couldn't get it out for 3 hours and so I was uneasy but at Thompson optics they did an amazing job at fitting the lens and making sure I was comfortable in it and using it. They also took the time to explain what happened to my eyes with my eye disease and what could happen in the future and just really gave me the knowledge I needed about keratoconus and helped me understand everything. I really don't know where I would be without them as I can't get corrected vision with glasses on anymore and scleral lenses were my only way for vision and they have done everything for me in the last 4 years to get me vision they are the kindest eye doctors and I am very thankful for what they do. I highly recommend for all your eye care needs.
In the last year I developed an astigmatism in my left eye and one 3 times larger in my right eye. I was unaware that Dr. Tarabey's office was the only place that could help me because the scleral lens I needed was medically necessary.
To make a long story short... from beginning to end ... it was nothing short of a miracle.
Dr. Tarabey's extensive training had me trusting him completely.
His easy going personality had much to do with that too!
Even though I had surgery to flatten the right astigmatism... it did not work.
After 3 different Boston hard contacts failing to be fitted properly... I gave up!
Ten years of not the greatest vision has passed and broken frames brought me to Walmart... that's where I met up with Dr. Tarabey.
And the rest is history!
His assistants very friendly which made the experience much easier. I thank everyone who was involved in my return to 20/20 vision.
And that IS the miracle that kept evading me!
They fitted me with special scleral lenses for Keratoconus a few years ago which brought my eyesight back to a level that I can drive and proceed with my photography.
Not only are they highly experienced in this field, they also really care for you as a human being. they'll take the time it takes to make sure they do the best they can. There may be a little wait time sometimes, but then they are also able to fit you into their schedule when you have an acute problem. And hey, there's free coffee 😃
I would highly recommend Thompson Optics. Not only did Jim and his team connect with my specialist to learn about my diagnosis, they sent me information so I could become familiar. They successfully fit me with Scleral lenses and during my inital visit were able to correct my vision and give me 20/20 with the lens in. When no one could help and the only hope I had was waiting for surgery, Tompson Optics gave me back my eye site. I am thrilled!
For a long time I had vey bad vision and I was told that nothing can be done for my eye condition. The experience I had was life changing. Dr. Tarabey fit me with scleral lenses and now I have the best vision ever . I am very glad to find an optometrist that understands my eye condition and was able to help me out . You really feel welcomed and I was treated like a person and not just a patient. They took thier time to make sure I was able to see , the staff are very polite and make you feel at home . Words can not describe how happy I am to get back my eye sight . I am really thankful for everything they have done for me and the time spent to improve my quality of life.
