There are not enough stars to rate this doctor......he is more than a 5 star excellent doctor. Dr Horn is an answer to prayer! The passion this man has for restoring, correcting, perfecting and giving hope to his patients goes above and beyond any specialist I have ever been to. I do have a story and was told I would never have the vision Dr Horn gave me. I had one doctor even refuse to do surgery claiming I was too high risk for retina detachment. Dr Horn not only restored my vision in my left eye but then proceeded to correct the miscalculated surgery to my right eye from my previous doctor. I now have 20/15 vision and for the first time ever I no longer need glasses or contacts ! I'm 58 years old, have had eye issues all my life and this one doctor in all my years gave me the gift of perfect vision. I am and will ever be grateful to this gifted doctor. His expertise, excellent direct passionate nature combined with the above and beyond skills he and his amazing staff offers is priceless. I not only encourage but highly recommend Dr Horn.....in my opinion those who gave low ratings I'm willing to bet they will happily return to Dr Horn for corrective procedures from less caring professionals. When you have the BEST why go to the rest?
I was awake during my cataract procedure and therefore could hear Dr; Horn shouting at the others in the room. He was screaming about someone being late to work and then at me for not keeping my eye open enough.I told a surgeon I know about it and he said such was inexcusable --especially with a conscience patient.Afterward , I felt his attention had been on everything except my right eye. Four weeks later--I had a severely detached retina. When I called his office I was told not to worry and that my symptoms were "normal". Three days later I had to have emergency surgery-needless to say--by another surgeon.
I was stunned to read the above commenter's review, because I experienced the SAME catastrophe with Dr. Horn a couple of years ago. He sold me an expensive lens, and then after two surgeries by him I emerged from cataract surgery with a detached retina and excruciating pain from a scratched cornea. His manner was cold and unsympathetic. I lost the eyesight in that eye, and I will never regain it. I too recommend that you BEWARE.
I have been a patient of Dr. Horn for over ten years. His work has truly changed my life. I have had severe vision problems from an early age. Because of extreme near-sightedness, I was desperate for help. I was referred to participate in a clinical study conducted by Dr. Horn. At that time, he performed a procedure that radically improved my vision and enhanced my quality of life. A few years later he also treated my eye dryness, which had plagued me for years, but had not been addressed by other doctors. A couple of years ago, in my late 40âs, I started to experience blurry vision in one eye. Dr. Horn correctly detected a cataract. Because of complications with my eyes, he thoroughly considered all the options and provided a thoughtful plan. I waited until this year to have cataract surgery for both eyes. Before the surgery, he consulted with a retinal specialist to take careful precautions. He even took the time to consider a particular type of lens, which was on special order. The surgery was a success. For the first time in my life I have 20/20 vision. I no longer wear glasses or contact lens. From all of my experiences the past ten years, I would highly recommend Dr. Horn because of his expertise, professionalism and personal care. He and his staff, especially Tiffany, have blessed my life in ways beyond measure. I am glad I have trusted him to give me vision for life.
Asked for a CASH payment for a cataract procedure, and upsold the most expensive lens. Again, his financial administrator asked for CASH. Which should have been a red flag. His mistakes during my cataract procedure resulted in a Detached Retina later. The procedure was very painful. He made several mistakes, which resulted in the premature tearing of my retina. The numbing drops he applied DO NOT work. You FEEL the pain. He is very arrogant and dismissive. Beware! I should have gotten a good malpractice atty. and sued.
