What Our Patients Say…

group 692

I have always been very nearsighted with astigmatisms. In the past few years my vision became even more nearsighted and I added cataracts to the mix. Thanks to two Toric Ocular surgeries and great followup care, a week after the second surgery my vision is 20/20. Pretty remarkable!

Great service. I am saying that because my eye sight was horrible and if I have not came here I wouldn’t be able to type what you are reading right now.

Dr. Groat and staff always go out of their way to help me and are a great team to visit. I see Dr. Groat regularly for my eye treatment and I feel like he truly cares about my progress. I would recommend Dr. Groat and team to anyone looking for an ophthalmologist in Wilmington.
