“After having cataract surgery with Dr. Bearman, everything has been great! He is really good at what he does.”

“After using Vision First for many years for prescriptions and glasses, I recently used Vision First and Shelby Ambulatory Center with Dr. Bearman for cataract surgery. Result is great clear vision with mixed multifocal lenses perfect for my presbyopia. The experience was customized for my needs and definitely not an ‘in the box’ solution. The staff at Vision First, from checking in at the desk, seeing the staff who do the work ups, thro’ Dr. Bearman’s careful assessment of desired outcomes to Carol who schedules the surgery…all are knowledgeable members of a cohesive team. I am amazed at the way they trust and respect one another. Makes this such a great place for a patient to be in their care. Thank you to each member of the team. Finally, this: Sunrise and sunset are more beautiful than I’ve ever experienced. Glasses at 6 years of age replaced with these new lenses at 66…and I am not wearing glasses to write or post this two days after second surgery. Better than I ever hoped to achieve!”

“My husband and I are very pleased after our visit to Dr. Clark [Clehern] in the Pell City office. She and her staff were very professional and friendly. I always need help picking out new frames and the lady that ordered them was extremely helpful and very patient with me as I probably tried on every pair in the office.”

“My 11 year old granddaughter and I had a wonderful experience at Vision First Eye Center on Lakeshore. The staff was ever so accommodating and doctors very professional providing in depth information to me about the results of her eye exam and, at the same time, relating very well to her as a patient. Actually we are returning for another visit there in March. Thank you to everyone at Vision First Eye Center on Lakeshore!”
