"I have recently had cataract surgery done by Dr. Sam Garrett at Virginia Beach Eye Center. Thanks to Dr. Garrett's state of the art eye care facility with onsite surgical suite, all work-up and surgery is conveniently performed in one place. Also, it is apparent that the staff were well-trained, very friendly, and happy in their work. If you are in need of professional eye care, I would strongly recommend Virginia Beach Eye Center. VBEC provides the very best professional eye care in the Tidewater area."

"Dr. Kurz performed my cataract surgeries and was wonderful. The staff is friendly, professional and Andrea, his surgery coordinator, is simply delightful, efficient and helpful. Dr. Kurz walked me through procedure before, during and after. The results of the surgeries are better than expected. Dr. Tomko is great as well; she treated me first for an eye injury and then fit me with contacts; she has a practical and helpful way about her. She was helpful in the decision process for cataract surgery. 5 stars!"
