Dr. Kelly performed PRK (laser corrective surgery) on both of my eyes about six weeks ago. I opted for the procedure in hopes of freeing myself from contacts lenses and glasses. While nervous at first, Dr. Kelly, his partner Dr. Smolenyak and their staff made me confident that I had a good chance of eliminating my need for corrective eye wear. I elected to proceed with the surgery and the results were amazing! I'm 20/15 (better than 20/20) with both eyes. I was pretty blurry at first and had some mild to moderate irritation/ tearing for a couple days. It was totally worth it. I see better now than I ever did with my contacts. The hardest part of the whole experience has been getting used to NOT putting in/ taking out my contacts. What a fun habit that has been to break. Dr. Kelly and his team were informative, reassuring and professional throughout my evaluation, procedure and post-operative appointments. Thanks so much.

I always dread going to the eye doctor for my yearly examine due to the dilation of my eyes and the wait time. I have to say that this was a very good experience. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and took the time to explain each test that was being done. The office is very nice and relaxing and the waiting time was not as bad as I had expected. Dr Dahringer has a very good bedside manner and that is important this day in time. He was eager to listen to the changes that had occured in the past year with my vision. He took time to explained everything to me so that I would understand why the changes were occuring. I would recommend him to my family and friends. When it comes time for cataract surgery Dr Dahringer is the one for me. The office has great parking and easy access which is a plus.
I have been a patient of the Kelly Eye Center for years (5+). the staff is amazing, caring, attentive and highly skilled. Dr. Kelly is likewise a terrific physician, very caring, takes time to discuss all queries and concerns and is very relaxed which helps patients relax in frequently difficult situations. Waiting times, a frequent complaint with physicians, seem non-existent -- arrive, sit down and get called in immediately. In addition the on-site glasses providing department is very competent, completive price-wise, finds discounts through insurance, and gets complicated prescriptions right the first time.
