Coach Tony Dungy loves his NEWSOM EYES!

We take our clear vision for granted. When vision problems arise, it can be overwhelming trying to find the care you need to treat and correct your vision.

Tony Dungy, former head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, had LASIK over 20 years ago and recently started noticing that his vision was deteriorating. Since clear vision is a large part of his role as a current NFL sports analyst, he knew he needed to take action.

Referred to Newsom Eye by a friend, Coach Dungy scheduled an evaluation with Dr. Newsom. During that visit, Dr. Newsom diagnosed Coach Dungy with cataracts and recommended cataract surgery to remove and replace his lenses.

As he tells it, Coach Dungy immediately felt that Dr. Newsom was an expert in cataract care, and good-naturedly described him as a ‘nutty professor’. He saw that Dr. Newsom and the team truly cared about their patients and outcomes, wanting the best possible vision for not only the coach, but every patient. From that first visit, all the way through post-operative cataract appointments, Coach Dungy described how comfortable he felt in being surrounded by an efficient and caring team of providers.

Coach Dungy noted how involved he was throughout the whole treatment process, explaining that every team member knew what was going to happen, why and the outcome,‘I was just informed every step of the way. I never had any doubt about what was going to happen, and I can see well…and, that’s the bottom line, too.’

After learning about all the available options, Coach Dungy selected the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL), which is the first and only lens that can be customized to an individual’s exact visual needs based on their lifestyle and hobbies. Not wanting to rely on readers after cataract surgery but with a career that requires excellent distance vision to see players on a football field, the LAL offered Coach Dungy the perfect solution. He said, ‘This technology is cutting edge and I’m grateful to be a little part of it…It’s pretty phenomenal. No glasses for me…I can see, I can drive, I can watch television, I can read and I can see the players on the field. It’s pretty amazing.’

You do not have to be a superbowl-winning football coach to receive the Light Adjustable Lens. Newsom Eye is proud to offer everyone the option to choose better vision and stay informed every step of the way. For 20 years, Newsom Eye has been your trusted cataract specialist and thousands of people like you have chosen better vision with Newsom Eye. You deserve NEWSOM EYES!

“Glasses are Gone!” Devon-LASIK Patient

“I have worn glasses since I was 10 years old, and contacts all through high school. With my astigmatism, my contacts were difficult to wear and my eyes would get dry, blurry and irritated by the end of the day. I’ve thought about Lasik for so many years, but was just too nervous.

After becoming the LASIK coordinator at Newsom eye, I felt so confident with the procedure I decided to book my own LASIK with Dr. Newsom. BEST DECISION EVER!! I still can’t believe the clarity I have now, something I never had with my contacts.

Being able to give future LASIK patients my first hand experience is incredible! They are able to talk to me, a genuine LASIK patient. It’s great to ease their mind about how quick and easy LASIK truly is! I am the Amazing LASIK Outcome and you can be too. I’m thankful for my Newsom Eyes!”

“Love Dr. Newsom!” Phyllis- Cataract Patient

Recently, both my husband and I started to notice more difficulty with our vision. After seeing glowing reviews about Newsom Eye online, we decided to make appointments. My husband was having trouble with floaters, but the doctor reassured him that it was nothing serious. I however, having type two diabetes, was at greater risk and was quickly diagnosed with two small holes in my retinas. Luckily, he was able to do a laser treatment, repairing the holes just days later. At my follow up visit, he recommended for me to see Dr. Newsom for my cataracts.

Dr. Newsom informed me that I could have cataract surgery and there are specialty lenses available to correct my vision in HD, so I would most likely see without glasses or contacts! The procedure was pain free almost immediately after surgery. I could see the clock on the wall and the kind faces of the staff caring for me. This was something I never imagined to be so easy and to have such amazing vision so quickly. My husband had always told me about the TV channels in HD, now I knew what he was talking about. My Newsom Eyes are now in HD, clear and amazing!

Now we tell everyone in our travels about this wonderful clinic. If you have cataracts and cannot see this marvelous world clearly anymore, please go see Dr. Newsom and his amazing staff. Then you can see the world as I do with Newsom Eyes! Thank you, Dr. Newsom.

“I put my confidence in the best” Jennifer- LASIK Patient

“As a physician, I depend on seeing clearly every day to effectively perform my job. For years I have been afraid to trust anyone with the surgical correction of my eyes. When I learned about Dr. Newsom and his state of the art facility and latest technology, I knew at last I had found someone I could entrust with my vision. The entire experience was positive – from the pre-operative exam, the day of procedure, and the post-operative follow up. By the next day, I was restored to perfect vision and felt great. I put my confidence in the best and I am glad I did. Thank you Dr. Newsom.”

” I wake up with a smile on my face” Christopher- LASIK Patient

Ever since this procedure, I wake up with a smile on my face over something simple, like being able to read an alarm clock. It has been nothing short of an amazing experience here at Newsom Eye, from my procedure to the people. I am extremely thankful for the care of the staff and my Newsom Eyes!”

“I Can See Clearly Now!” Claire- Cataract Patient

“The first time I realized I had cataracts was at the DMV. The clerk kept asking me to read the third line of the vision test, but where that line was suppose to be, all I could see was a very cloudy blob. She advised me to go see an eye doctor for an exam right away, because I would need the doctor’s signature to be able to receive my updated license. I made an appointment with Dr. Newsom who came highly recommended by several people. Upon completion of the exam, I was told that my right eye was at 2400, not 20/40 or even 20/30, and I had a fast growing cataract that needed to be extracted ASAP. On top of that, I also had a cataract growing in the left eye as well.

I was nervous to have anyone mess with my eyes, but I wanted to see. I had cataract surgery done on my right eye, and then a week later, I had my left eye done as well.  It was a painless procedure performed by Dr. Newsom at the Surgery Center. I truly am so very pleased with the Acrysof ReStor lenses placed in my eyes. This is my first day after the surgery on the left eye and I am typing this letter now, reading without glasses, and seeing colors so clearly that words cannot explain. I can honestly say I have found an old song that truly depicts how I feel, “I Can See Clearly Now!”

“Dr. Newsom’s results live up to his reputation.” Dr. Wyman- Cataract Patient

“As my vision started to deteriorate, Dr. Newsom told me about cataract surgery with the ReSTOR lens. The ReSTOR lens could offer me the opportunity to see at a distance and up close for reading without glasses. Being a dentist and pilot, that was an exciting concept. Now that I have the ReSTOR lens, I am without glasses. I am amazed that I am able to see so well. Dr. Newsom’s results live up to his reputation.”

“Thank you Newsom Eye for saving my vision!” Stephanie- Retina Patient

I am so grateful for Newsom Eye and all of their kindness. Newsom Eye was able to get me an appointment on the same day, and I was greeted when I walked in the front door. From the front desk, to the nurses, to the doctors, everyone was so professional and made sure I felt comfortable the entire time. Thank you to Newsom Eye’s Retina specialist who found multiple tears to my retinas, and was able to fit me in for surgery the following week. He was super patient and understood that I was very overwhelmed with the diagnosis. Here we are 4 weeks later, and I feel great! Thank you to Newsom Eye for saving my vision!

” Having LASIK was the BEST thing I had ever done!” Bethany- LASIK Patient

I met Michele (Practice Liaison) last summer at a networking event, and really did not think LASIK would be an option for me. Michele took the time to talk to me about coming in for a consult and I told her “sure, sounds good,” then I left and didn’t think about it again. However, Devon (LASIK Coordinator) didn’t let me forget for long. Devon reached out and with several gentle nudges, we finally got a consult scheduled. That consult was life changing. I realized I can do this and even better, with my HSA, I can afford it! However, when it came down to actually scheduling the pre-op and the surgery, I chickened out again. Thankfully, Devon was there to hold my hand and point me in the right direction, and I am SO happy she did! After 30 years of wearing glasses and contacts, it is so amazing to be able to see. The surgery itself lasted about five minutes and was such a smooth process that it was over before I knew it. I appreciated Dr. Newsom talking me through it and putting me at ease. I can’t believe I waited so long and let fear get in my way. Having LASIK was the BEST thing I have ever done and a huge part of that is due to the excellent service I received from beginning to end. Dr. Newsom and his staff are second to none when it comes to expertise and customer service! As a realtor, helping my customers with their real estate needs is my number one priority. Now, with my Newsom Eyes, I can see clearly to get their home sold!

“Thank you Newsom Eye!” Warren- Cataract Patient

The cataract surgery that Dr. Newsom performed on my eyes has not only restored my sight, but restored my qualify of life. As a career firefighter, my eyesight was just too important to risk. Thank you Newsom Eye!

“The only thing I regret is not doing this sooner! Matt C.- LASIK Patient

I had struggled with poor sight my entire life so I finally decided I wanted to give LASIK a shot with Dr. Newsom. When I showed up for my LASIK consultation, Dr. Forde discovered some serious issues with my retina that I was unaware of that needed correction fast. They were able to perform Laser Retinopexy surgery fast and save my eye! With that out of the way, Dr. Newsom was able to correct my vision to 20/20! The only thing I regret is not doing this sooner. Thanks to the whole team for your quality service and care, you truly have made a difference in my life.  Now selling homes is easier than ever with my Newsom Eyes!”

“Newsom eye was one of the best decisions I have ever made!” Andie- LASIK Patient

Getting LASIK surgery at Newsom Eye was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is so nice waking up in the morning and not having to worry about glasses or contacts, and I can wear sunglasses whenever I want!  My experience at Newsom Eye has been great from my pre-op appointment to surgery and now to my post-op appointments. Having perfect vision is amazing and I get to enjoy it for the rest of my life, thanks to Newsom Eye!

“There is only one word that describes Newsom Eye.. Indescribable!” Michael- Cataract Patient

The first time I went outside after my cataract surgery, the colors and clarity of everything was so vivid! I thought I was in Disneyland! Everybody there was so knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and downright nice that it would be really cool if all companies were run that way. It’s a whole new world for me. I had worn glasses and contacts for 60 years prior to the procedure but now I have 20/15 vision in my left eye and 202/202 in my right; effectively 20/15 in both eyes together. There is only one word that describes the work Newsom Eyes did… Indescribable!!

“Gave me back my sight and life!” Michele, Cross-linking Patient

After I had LASIK done in Georgia, my vision was still shifting and I was having issues with dryness. Dr. Fazio at Newsom Eye helped me with my dry eye and then recommended that I get Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking. It is a very non-invasive procedure that helps strengthen the cornea for people with Corneal Ectasia and Keratoconus, a.k.a. weak corneas. I met with the Cross-Linking coordinator, Devon (who is fabulous), and she explained everything thoroughly and was able to get my procedure scheduled pretty quickly.

I had my Cross-Linking (CXL) procedure done on November 2017 and 2 months later I was already noticing a huge improvement! I saw Dr. Grimm, who explained everything in detail and took the time to answer any questions I had for her.  At Newsom Eye she specializes in fitting patient’s with specialty lenses, specifically for patients who have had Cross-Linking. Dr. Grimm was able to get an excellent fit and vision almost immediately! She is so sweet and genuinely cares for her patients. I truly feel like I am family and I am so grateful for everything! Thank you Newsom Eye & Dr. Grimm especially for giving me back my sight and life!
