Brandon D. Ayres, MD

“I can see clearly – read road signs while driving, as well as the New York Times at breakfast. Colors are vibrant and true again. But for me the ability to see all this without any aid except eye drops is a real revelation.” – Cecilie G. Baker


“I’m writing to say thank you for the incredibly successful corneal transplant I had a year ago. My gratitude is impossible to describe. The results were apparent within two weeks. I want to thank the donor, the donor’s family and the medical staff for making it possible. I especially thank Dr. Ayres for making me feel comfortable and the surgery painless.”

– Mary Papillon


Stephen Lichtenstein, MD

“Thank you immensely for all the attention you gave to my situation. I feel incredibly blessed to have chosen you as my surgeon. What you have done certainly makes you one of my super heroes.”

– Melanie Shain


“I just wanted to thank you for your skill, compassion, and amazing ability to say just the right words to me. I feel as if I have been given a chunk of my life back, so it’s kind of a miracle to me. It’s great to be able to recognize people, see my grandchildren better, and see one moon instead of 4 or 5!  Went to the movies today!!”

– Judy Rickards


“You and your entire staff operate a highly professional and organized office. I thank you every morning when I open my eyes and don’t reach for my glasses and also every evening when I do not go through the ritual of removing my contact lenses before bedtime…a privilege I haven’t had in the past 55 years. (I also love the fact that you gave me the perfect refraction in both eyes allowing me to see at a distance and also read close up without correction.)”

– Camilla Pica


“I wanted to send you a note to thank you for the great job you did with my cataract surgery. My vision is great! You said you would try to make it perfect, and I am delighted that you did it.”

– Anthony Rooklin, MD


Marlene Moster, MD

“To my one and only Dr. Moster who takes such good care of me (and has for the last 20 years). Because of you there will be no white cane or seeing eye dog.”

– Sally Wistar Miller


“I can never thank you enough for all that you did for me during my surgeries and final healing of my right eye. I always appreciated the reassurance that you would see through and that I would keep my eye sight. You were absolutely right!”

– Beverly Earl


“A few years ago you examined my right eye because I wanted a bleb revision from glaucoma surgery I had in 2003. The glaucoma was the result of an infection I contracted in 2001. You told me you could do it but did not want to touch my eye until I had a corneal transplant. You felt my vision was too bad to settle with it and felt it was better to have the transplant before you worked on my bleb. The recovery from the transplant took much longer than I thought (over a year). Last summer, I was finally ready for the bleb revision. You performed the surgery in July, and since September I have felt great. I look much better too. I can’t thank you enough for helping me and encouraging me not to settle for substandard vision. I have been able to work in my studio with much more ease, and I feel like a new person.”

– Ann Lalik


“Thank you for your kindness, caring, and superb surgical skills. You are one terrific lady!!”

– Elsa Levitt


“Thank you for seeing me on Friday the 13th of January for a much needed second opinion. Your confidence, kindness, and warmth have completely eased my worries. What I like most is your straight forward talk. Also, your decision of not reading the referral letter first is an excellent approach.”

– Phuong Mai Dau


Leonard Nelson, MD

“It is no longer a huge effort to focus and I am not seeing double anymore. Thank you so much for correcting what was becoming a major problem for me! It is so nice to feel ‘normal’ again.”

– Patrice Pompa

“We are contacting you because we want to thank Wills Eye, Ophthalmic Partners, and especially Dr. Leonard Nelson and his team for all of their wonderful work with our daughter, Alyza.

This past weekend we had our daughter Alyza photographed and when we received the proofs from our photographer and were comparing them to the last set of photographs of her taken just a week before her surgery in March, we almost cried tears of joy!

Dr. Nelson and the staff completed the eye muscle surgery on our little baby, and we will admit we were nervous about doing the surgery at all. However, because of the high regard we have for Dr. Nelson and his experience, we put our trust in him. Thank God for his guidance in her care. When we look at Alyza’s beautiful blue eyes in these photographs, we know we made the right decision.

Thank you for all you have done and we will be back for a follow up next month.”

– Jennifer, Stefan, Big Sister Claire, and Alyza


Michael Pro, MD

“How can I thank you enough for coming to my rescue when I was in a dire emergency with my right eye.”

– Rosemary Miller


Irving M. Raber, MD

“Throughout the years you have guided me through a most difficult journey. You have helped me maintain my quality of life. I can’t thank you enough. I have the utmost faith in you. Concerning my upcoming surgery, you said today, ‘I will do my very best.’ I could not ask for anything more.”

– John Newkirk

“Thank you for all the excellent care from 1996-2014.”

– Kathyann Gabrielle


Katie E. Schrack, MD

“Thank you so much for seeing me after hours and waiting for me. My eye is feeling so much better. Your kindness was most appreciated.”

– Roberta Green


Richard Tipperman, MD

“I would like to thank you in writing for the gift of sight you gave me via the successful cataract surgeries and the implanting of the Alcon Vivity lens in both of my eyes. I am extremely happy with the results – distant, intermediate and near vision, as well as minimal negative visual side effects. As you well know, I had specific objectives going into this, and they have been met. You gave me life back in terms of both the activities I need to do, and those that I enjoy going.”

– Joe Cirucci


“Dr. Tipperman, we both greatly appreciated your soothing and reassuring mannerisms, which led to tremendous confidence in you performing our cataract surgery. Your surgical skills are second to none. We both found it more than worthwhile to make the 1 ½ hour trip to your facilities.”

– Robert T. Curley


“I am so glad I selected Dr. Tipperman as I could not believe everything I could see and how clear – his response was “walking in to a patient and seeing their smile is the only gratification I need!”

– Debra Schaffer
