I spoke to Dr. Reinauer about the floaters in my eyes. I had no idea he could remove them. What a difference the surgery made. Dr. Reinauer is one of the most compassionate, caring doctors you can meet. He explains every detail of your problem and puts you at ease immediately. He truly cares.

My vision is now better than it has been in years and I believe I owe that to Dr. Reinauer and his amazing staff. Dr. Reinauer continued to show that same caring concern at every follow up visit I had. I highly recommend him- God Bless Dr. Reinauer.

On the afternoon of 9/5/17 I suddenly went blind in my right eye. I was diagnosed with a detached retina and sent to New Vision where I first met Dr. Reinauer, a retina specialist. I was taken in without an appointment or being their patient. I was scheduled for surgery the very next morning. Post op instructions were made very specific, and the entire staff was caring and supportive. On 11/19/17 I had my full sight back. Amazing! I say thank you to Dr. Reinauer and the entire staff at New Vision Eye Center.

I developed a problem with floaters, which were driving me crazy. Not sure anything could be done to correct them, I made an appointment with Dr. Reinauer. After a complete exam, he said he could help. Still skeptical, I agreed to the procedure and the floaters are gone! Dr. Reinauer was understanding, compassionate, and highly skilled. I recommend him to anyone suffering as I was.

I had large floaters in my right eye which caused me major issues when trying to read. I thought I would have to live with them, but Dr. O'Brien told me they could be removed, and referred me to Dr. Reinauer who addressed my concerns and put me at ease about the surgery. His staff in both the office and surgery center were kind and patient with me. I'm ecstatic about the results and I'm very grateful to have met this warm, compassionate, and caring doctor.

Many doctors are blessed with excellent medical skills. Not all doctors have the medical skills coupled with the people skills. Dr. Robert Reinauer has the combination. His surgical skills as a retina specialist are amazing, but he also gives his patients undivided attention, invites questions, and makes patients feel special. I highly recommend Dr. Reinauer for surgeries involving the vitreous humor or retina.

As a physician, I did not take vitrectomy surgery lightly since excellent vision is critical to my work. Dr. Reinauer was outstanding in his performance of the procedure which was painless and without complication, resulting in clear floater free vision... Dr. Reinauer's support colleagues and staff were efficient, kind and courteous. I can highly recommend Dr. Reinauer to anyone considering vitrectomy surgery.

Dr. Robert Taylor
Dr. Robert Taylor

After reading an article about a procedure called vitrectomy, I went to see Dr. Reinauer to answer my many questions. He convinced me that my decision to have the surgery on both eyes would be the correct one. I signed up for the procedure. As far as my eyes are concerned, this was the best decision I have made in a long time. The floaters have completely disappeared. I will have my eyes tested for new glasses and I will be a new man!

John Lowe

When my eye doctor told me about Dr. Reinauer's procedure to remove floaters, I immediately called for a consultation. After speaking with him I decided to have the surgery. I am very happy with the results. My eye sight is clearer and brighter. Colors are more vibrant. I am one happy patient and highly recommend Dr. Reinauer.

Pat N.

Having the floaters removed from both eyes by Dr. Reinauer was the most fantastic surprise this year! What an amazing difference in the clarity of vision. Dr. Reinauer and his staff were very nice-making me feel calm confident in the procedure. I would do it again!

Barbara W.

A vitrectomy sounds scary-Dr. Reinauer makes it easy. I'd lived with a grey area in my vision for months and it is great to have it gone. Dr. Reinauer and his staff are professional, courteous, and friendly. The procedure was a snap, Dr. Reinauer guided me through aftercare with no problem.

Robert M.

For over 50 years I have been bothered by floaters in my left eye, but have always been told that there was nothing that could be done about them. I made an appointment with Dr. Reinauer who performed a vitrectomy on both of my eyes. I feel like my life has changed since these procedures... I can now see clearly, and have no more "spots" before my eyes. Dr. Reinauer and his staff are caring and professional. I couldn't be more pleased with my care. Vero Beach is very fortunate to have such a skilled professional!

Vi Burkhard

I am so grateful for Dr. Reinauer and the staff of New Vision. Dr. Reinauer is so skilled and kind and takes all the time I need to explain what is to take place, answering all of my questions. When I had a detached retina, I got in to see the doctor right away and the surgery went very smoothly. The follow-up appointments have all gone well too. I never have to wait and the nurses are so efficient and caring. Thank you Dr. Reinauer for saving my vision!

Lynnea Porter

My eye floaters are a thing of the past. Dr. Reinauer's assurance that they could be removed was performed with complete success and minimal discomfort. Him and his staff were very efficient, courteous and professional. I highly recommend this procedure if you have any discomfort from eye floaters.

David P.

We are so lucky to have Dr. Reinauer working in Vero Beach. There aren't many ophthalmologists trained to remove floaters. We are also lucky to have New Vision Eye Center, where patients are treated kindly and with respect. Dr. Reinauer patiently explained every step of the procedure, and the removal of my floater went smoothly and with no surprises. I am so glad I found Dr. Reinauer!

Linda K.

Dr. Reinauer's expert and prompt treatment of my detached retina probably saved my eye sight in my left eye. His superior and professional care during the first few days of my recovery was exemplified by him seeing me on a Saturday morning even though the office was closed. I would highly recommend Dr. Reinauer to anyone needing treatment of retina related eye problems.

John Styron, Jr.

I was so nervous thinking of anyone messing with my eyes, but Dr. Reinauer and his staff made the whole experience worth while. It was a piece of cake, so for anyone considering this procedure, please trust that Dr. Reinauer and his staff will answer any and all questions you may have and make you very comfortable.

Shelly C.

No floaters! Wow! I had been dealing with severe floaters for about twenty years, and every ophthalmologist I saw told me there was nothing to do for them. I heard Dr. Reinauer was doing wonderful things with floater removal, so I contacted him and it was the best decision I ever made. There was no pain or discomfort during or after the procedure. I am floater free and have a ‘new look' on life!

Don Marti

My current optometrist recommended I consult with Dr. Reinauer about my floaters. He instilled hope and faith that he could remove the floaters. I continue to be amazed and thankful for the unbelievable results.

Gene Gresham

For years I was told by physicians here and in New Jersey that there wasn't anything that could correct the floaters and large clouds across my vision, that it was just part of the aging process. Then I met with Dr. Robert Reinauer. He performed a vitrectomy on both of my eyes. All I can say is that I want to tap dance with joy at the results of this procedure. I didn't realize how badly my vision was impaired. God bless you Dr. Reinauer.

I have nothing but positive words to say about my experience with New Vision Eye Center. Dr. Reinauer's professionalism and talent is beyond compare. I had a painless procedure one day and the next day I no longer experience the floaters that were bothersome for years. I literally have a new outlook on life.

I was nervous to have surgery until Dr. Reinauer explained everything to me in depth, quelling my fears. The technicians, nurses, and staff were all very courteous and professional.

Gregory Yuill

I accompanied my wife on her appointment with Dr. Reinauer and took the opportunity to ask him if he could do anything about the floaters in my vision. His answer was yes! Dr. Reinauer examined me and told me that my floaters were among the worst he had ever seen. The care and concern during pre-op really put me at ease. The procedure did not take very long and I experienced no pain at all. Now, I no longer have floaters, and actually have clear vision for the first time in a long time! My vision in that eye is now 20/20. I would recommend Dr. Reinauer to any and all who have this condition.

David Fleetwood

I am so happy with my new eyesight! I had large floaters that completely interfered with my vision. I was having such a difficult time. Dr. Reinauer assured me that he could remove the floaters and I felt confident in his abilities. The whole staff made me feel comfortable and I had absolutely no fear as I went into surgery. The day after the procedure, my sight was as clear as could be. Today, I have 20/20 vision. The whole experience was a joy!

I have been a patient for over two years and have had various procedures. All of the doctors and staff are great. Recently, I was referred to Dr. Reinauer for floaters in my vision. He was very sympathetic to my issues and answered all of my questions. He assured me he could correct my visual problems. On the day of surgery, the staff was very kind and patient which put me at complete ease. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Reinauer and his staff. My only wish is that I had come to see him sooner. The entire staff is the best in the world.

Joseph D'Amato

I first met Dr. Reinauer on a Friday afternoon and to my surprise I had a detached retina. Dr. Reinauer was such a blessing, working until late into the evening to save my sight. My surgery was very successful and the follow up was great. Six months later, this special doctor called me out of the blue to see how I was doing. I have never had a doctor do this - he is a very caring person. I have since had a second surgery to remove the floaters in my vision that I thought nothing could be done about. Thanks to Dr. Reinauer, I am 74 years young and can see perfectly.

After living with floaters, blurry vision, and headaches for many years, a friend referred me to Dr. Reinauer. I was afraid to have surgery but after meeting Dr. Reinauer, I felt confident that he could help me. It was the best decision I have ever made. I now have clear vision and no more headaches.

Linda Highsmith

I want to thank Dr. Reinauer and staff for their caring treatment to correct my visual problems. Your explanations to my questions were thorough and complete. You explained what needed to be done and you did so with superior care and success.

Joseph Visceglia
Joseph Visceglia

Before I met Dr. Reinauer, I was told surgery to correct my condition had a low probability of success and that I would have travel far to find a qualified surgeon. Dr. Reinauer changed all of that by surgically correcting my macular pucker. He's a skilled physician and a warm and caring human being. New Vision made the entire process comfortable and convenient.

Bruce Dimock

I required emergency retina surgery to save my vision. I was very nervous but because of Dr. Reinauer's warm personality and professionalism, I was totally relaxed. Not only was the surgery a success but the follow up care was magnificent.in what a patient desires in a physician.

Ralph Gehre
Ralph Gehre

While on vacation, the retina of my left eye became detached. The physician I saw in San Juan PR coordinated with Dr. Reinauer to schedule the surgical correction I would require. Dr. Reinauer opened the office on Saturday to examine me at 7:00 am and was operating on me by 9:00 am. The coordination with the physician in Puerto Rico and Dr. Reinauer was exceptional. World class care of this magnitude is hard to come by, especially these days.

William Schubert
William Schubert

Dr. Reinauer is a highly skilled Retinal Specialist who eliminated the floaters that I was plagued with for many years. My results were nothing short of a miracle. In addition, Dr. Reinauer could write the "how to" book on bedside manner. He is the total package in what a patient desires in a physician.

Diane Isola
Diane Isola

Last September my optometrist pronounced I had a detached retina. She said I needed immediate attention and suggested either Bascom Palmer or the surgical Retina Specialist at New Vision Eye Center. I chose the latter and I am so very glad that I did. From the very first meeting, I could tell that Dr. Reinauer was the right choice.

Dr. Reinauer's expertise and professional, excellent "bedside" manner is top notch. What I really like is his dedication to his patients and his thoroughness in taking whatever time necessary to see the patient through the process. Kudos to him and to all the professional staff at New Vision!

Terrence B.

For some time, I had floaters in my left eye. They caused difficulty in reading and my eyes tired easily. It was suggested that I could have Dr. Reinauer do surgery to remove those "floaters". I did, and was very pleased with the results! I would recommend this surgery to anyone, and especially recommend Dr. Reinauer to perform it.

Once in a lifetime if we are lucky, we encounter a teacher who is memorable for a lifetime, or a preacher, or a physician. Dr. Reinauer at New Vision Eye Center is that Physician. He is surrounded by an incredible staff and facility, the combination making for something far superior to a first-class health care experience.

Nobody should wish for retinal emergencies, but it certainly is comforting to know that right in Vero Beach, we have not only Dr. Reinauer, but the staff and facility at New Vision Eye Center -- a rare reality and a memory for a lifetime.

Dr. Reinauer performed a Vitrectomy on my left eye. He was very pleasant and thoroughly explained the procedure. Dr. Reinauer spoke to my husband after the surgery and thoroughly explained how the operation went. When you have a question he personally and promptly gets back to you. My surgery was a successful and easy experience.

Marrianne T.

Dr. Reinauer's friendly disposition combined with his excellent medical skills make him the kind of doctor everyone hopes to find. The vitrectomy Dr. Reinauer performed to eliminate my eye floaters and hazy vision went perfectly. Treasure Coast residents are fortunate to have such a gifted surgeon practicing in Vero Beach.

J. Paul

I recently had eye surgery performed by Dr. Robert Reinauer at New Vision Eye Center. I highly recommend him based on the following: He explains every step of the procedure, listens to your concerns, is kind and makes one feel confident and comfortable. I am super pleased with the results of my surgery and very grateful for his expertise and the overall experience while in his care.

Janette G.

Before moving to Vero Beach I had a botched cataract surgery in Ft. Myers, Florida. I heard rave reviews about New Vision Eye Center and made an appointment to see if they could correct my vision. Dr. Reinauer stated that he could use the Yag laser. My vision was finally corrected and the feeling of having a veil over my eye disappeared. I also had a problem with floaters in the same eye and a month later Dr. Reinauer performed retina surgery to remove them. What a relief, I can see perfectly now. Dr. Reinauer is an excellent surgeon. It is rare to have such a personable doctor take the time to explain everything so thoroughly. Dr. Reinauer truly cares about his patients and I highly recommend him.

Daniel Uiterwyk

After being evaluated at another ophthalmology group in Vero Beach and being told by that doctor that he would rather not address my problem, as there was only a 50% chance of success, I opted out of having anything done. Then I read an article on Dr. Reinauer and how he has a treatment for "the cloud in the vision" that I had been experiencing. When I met with him, he made me feel that treating my condition would be a normal procedure for him, not a big deal. He operated on my left eye and from that day forward, my vision was absolutely fixed. No cloud, no blurring. I then had my right eye treated, which had a similar cloud. Again, my vision is as perfect as can be. It's like it was in my twenties, and I'm 74. Dr. Reinauer's attention to detail and his concern for his patient's satisfaction seems to be foremost on his mind. If anyone has a question or concern about the services at New Vision Eye Center and Dr. Reinauer, I would be happy to discuss my experience.

Due to a past detached retina reparative surgery, I wanted the best possible care when I moved down to Vero Beach. I selected New Vision Eye Center. I started with Dr. Minotty and now I see their retina specialist, Dr. Reinauer. Both have taken excellent care of my aged eyes. It's terrific to see everything as sharp and clear as when I was a young lad. I have been extremely impressed by the entire staff at New Vision, always pleasant, always taking their time to listen to my concerns. On top of everything else, they are a great supporter of the Vero Beach Community. Thank you New Vision Eye Center.

I was a little nervous about having eye surgery but Dr. Reinauer and the entire staff at New Vision Eye Center in Vero Beach made me feel so at ease that I knew I made the right choice in doctors.For many years I had floaters in my left eye and very poor vision. Dr. Reinauer and staff were extremely kind, and he explained the corrective procedure clearly and compassionately. I am so pleased, since my surgery in April, my vision is unbelievably good. The service was exceptional; New Vision transported me to and from the surgery and to my follow up appointments. I am so grateful to Dr. Reinauer for restoring my sight.

Patricia Flanigan

My wife and I are very glad to have chosen New Vision for our eye care. The doctors and staff are all top notch. I had a condition in my left eye, vitreomacular traction, that affected my vision. I had been told by other doctors that not much could be done. Dr. Reinauer changed that! He performed surgery and my vision continues to improve!

Terry S.

Dr. Reinauer, I can't thank you enough for my vitrectomy surgery. I was apprehensive when we met, since this was my 80 year old eye and you being as young as you are, but I quickly got over that fear after our first discussion. You made me feel very at ease and comfortable. My surgery was a mere 3 weeks ago and my eyesight has improved so much, it is almost back to normal. I look forward to followups with your office, where everything is first class and professional.

Peter Hammer

I was scared silly of cataract surgery! After the first eye was done- piece of cake! I could hardly wait to get the other eye cleared up. Dr. Tate is the most pleasant as well as highly skilled professional for his specialty of cataract surgery. The staff as kind as well as highly trained. I would recommend him, without hesitation for anyone needing cataract surgery. I am delighted to thank him for my perfect eye sight-without glasses.

Mary Lou V.

I was apprehensive about my cataract surgery, as I have never had surgery in 64 years. Even though New Vision is over 40 miles from home, I decided to go for it. I was pleasantly surprised at the thoughtfulness of the staff, at their professionalism, and at their care. As for the surgery, I remember asking Dr. Tate when it would be starting...to be told it was done.

Bruno H.

My vision has greatly improved following cataract surgery with Dr. Tate. I now only use reading glasses for the small print in the newspaper. I thank New Vision Eye Center for my distance vision.

My cataract surgery with Dr. Tate went very smoothly and I experienced no pain at all. I have been legally blind for my whole life and relied on very thick glasses and contact lenses to help me see. I can now see better than I ever have with glasses. I highly recommend Dr. Tate to anyone considering cataract surgery.

I had cataract surgery in May 2016 because I had trouble reading the signs while driving. It was a miracle after the surgery. I could see distance again and read the newspaper without "readers". Dr. Stephen Tate and all the staff did an excellent job of making me feel comfortable and satisfied..

Anne P.

A special thanks to Dr. Tate and his staff. I had cataract surgery and the results are amazing. I appreciate the care given to me. I was very nervous, but the team made me feel very comfortable. If you need surgery and are afraid, you can relax. It's really simple and the results are wonderful.

Martha Sapp

I have worn glasses since I was about 5 years old, so severely nearsighted that I was blind without them. Then I developed glaucoma, and my eyesight got worse. From there I developed cataracts, and I was really frightened that I would lose what little sight I had. Dr. Tate at New Vision Eye Center said that he couldn't guarantee that I would have better vision, but he would do his best. My vision is now 20/25 in my right eye and my left eye is 20/20. This truly is a miracle! I can see clearly now without glasses or contacts. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and still in shock. Dr. Tate and New Vision Eye Center have given me the ability to see with such clarity and focus without any correction - and I am forever grateful.

Sharon S. Gunn-Dotson

Dr. O'Brien and the team at New Vision made sure that I was comfortable and had a complete understanding of my LASIK procedure through the entire process, from my initial pre-op evaluation to my post-ops. My vision went from 20/20 with glasses to 20/15, and I'm able to see things I was never able to see before, even with glasses! I cannot say enough good things about New Vision Eye Center and Dr. O'Brien. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in LASIK.

Caitlin Rice
Caitlin Rice

I initially went to New Vison Eye Center to consult with Dr. O'Brien about LASIK surgery. My vision was so poor that he said I was a better candidate for a procedure that his colleague, Dr. Tate, could perform instead. I went from trepidation to optimism after meeting with Dr. Tate. He performed a Clear Lens Exchange - basically, cataract surgery with a new lens implant. Who would have known that after two very short, seamless procedures that I would go from legally blind to being able to see clearly without glasses for the first time in my life. My experience was life changing and I am forever grateful to the New Vision Eye Center team.

Marlene Yeager

For years I felt that my droopy lids were interfering with my eyesight, especially my peripheral vision. I also looked tired all of the time. When Dr. O'Brien suggested that I might be a candidate for eyelid surgery, I was completely on board. Swelling, bruising, and downtime were minimal and recovery was easier than I expected. I am so happy that I had this done. My sight has improved, everything seems brighter, and I look and feel 10 years younger.

Ingrid Biesaart

I had laser vision correction with Dr. O'Brien and it has made the game so much easier, not having to rely on glasses and contacts to see the green. The entire process was so simple, I only wish I had done it sooner. Thank you for restoring my vision!

Years ago, Dr. Minotty did cataract surgery with lens replacement on my wife Gaye. Seeing how great her results were made my decision to have the same procedure very easy. My results were just as good. The professionalism of Dr. Minotty and the entire staff of New Vision Eye Center is exemplary.

It is always a pleasure to go to their office, where Dr. Minotty and his staff are friendly and very professional.

Melanie S.

As a primary care physician, I often refer patients to subspecialists. For the past 2 decades, I have referred patients with cataracts to Dr. Minotty. The outcomes and patient satisfaction have been consistently excellent. When I discovered that I had a cataract myself, the choice was easy. I went to the experienced, professional and talented Dr. Minotty. Now I know firsthand the excellent care that my patients receive at New Vision Eye Center.

Dr. Minotty gave me a wonderful gift. He used laser for the astigmatism and cataract surgery. It is wonderful being glasses free. The procedure was painless and I am so pleased with the results.

I chose to have cataract surgery with Dr. Minotty and I was blown away at the result. My vision in both eyes has never been as clear and sharp as it is now. If you are considering the surgery, by all means do it. You will be astonished at the result as well.

My "new vision" allows me to see clearly without glasses except for reading, which was my choice. I can now drive at night again, which is something I stopped doing years ago because of my cataracts. I highly recommend Dr. Minotty and the staff at The Cataract Institute at New Vision Eye Center.

I would highly recommend cataract surgery to anyone considering it. Your vision will improve greatly. Colors are much brighter and vivid, as is everything around you. I encourage you to decide in favor of improving your eyesight. Thank you Dr. Minotty & staff.

Dr. Minotty operated on my right eye in 1996 and my left eye four years later. There was never any pain or discomfort. I was delighted to have amazingly clear vision by the afternoon. I never realized how dim everything looked until the cataract was removed. Today, many years later, I am still experiencing the same good vision as I did after surgery. I only need reading glasses. Thank you Dr. Minotty.

My cataracts finally were causing me a problem and I was referred to Dr. Minotty seven years ago. He turned my life around. I can now drive without glasses. I can also go swimming and I can find my chair on the sand. Wow!! What a wonderful world. What a wonderful Dr. Minotty! Thank you so much.!

I was a little bit afraid of cataract surgery but it was a breeze! That very afternoon I was out and about, practicing on the putting green, reading, and bird watching. Zero discomfort. Thank you Dr. Minotty and the staff at New Vision Eye Center.

The day I went in to have surgery, I was overwhelmed at the efficiency and kindness of Dr. Minotty and his entire staff. From the minute I walked in and throughout the entire brief stay, I was very comfortable in their professional hands. I have searched for words to describe them and the ones that keep coming to mind are: highly knowledgeable, very efficient and most understanding. A great team.

I now have excellent vision in both eyes without the need for any distance correction whatsoever. I would certainly recommend your services to anyone that needs cataract surgery.

Superb! I have never met a doctor with more compassion and understanding. He reflects that through his eyes and voice that he has care and concern for his patients. As an artist, my vision is so important to me. Dr. Meyer has cared for me for a long time and I look forward to his continued care of my condition.

Clear vision and no longer looking for my glasses in order to drive has been a great reward. Having cataract surgery and the surgical removal of the annoying floaters has made life more enjoyable.

Timothy Stellmach

I had cataract surgery about a year ago. The floater surgery made as much difference in my vision as the cataract surgery and maybe more.

Donald Southerland

From the moment I stepped into this beautiful facility, I felt a sense of professionalism far above any I had ever experienced.

I can describe my cataract surgery in on word: miracle. I have worn glasses or contacts for severe nearsightedness since I was 7 years old, and for astigmatism in more recent years. I now enjoy 20/20 eyesight. I can even see up close (computer, food labels, phone contacts) without the constant need for reading glasses. Thank you Dr. Tate for my new vision! You have changed my life more than I could ever have imagined.
