Dr Ackermann is one of the nicest persons I know. As a physician, she is caring, conscientious and competent. She is also very patient and explains everything in details. I recently had cataract surgery. The day before, my friend asked me if I was nervous. I replied not in the least bit, because I trust Dr Ackermann 200%. And I was not wrong.


By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

I was lucky enough to find Dr. Ackermann when I needed to have cataracts removed from both of my eyes. Not only is she an amazing doctor but she and her staff made my experience with both of my eyes (which were done almost two years apart) very easy and uneventful. They answered any and every question I had. From the beginning of my first surgery to the final follow up of my second surgery, nothing but wonderful! If I have anything eye related that comes up in the future, I will be calling on Doctor Ackermann and her staff!!!! Thank you is just not enough...


It was really fun getting to know the doctors They were all helpful in answering my questions and made me feel completely at ease. My vision ended up being twice as good as I could have ever imagined!

I have been going to Ophthalmology Associates for many years. Everyone from the front desk, to the technicians and Dr. Ackermann have always been highly professional and very friendly. They always take the time to answer my questions thoroughly and patiently. I’ve never felt they were rushing to get to the next appointment. Dr. Ackermann was especially attentive to possible negative effect of medication I was taking at one time for a for a chronic medical condition. I highly recommend this office for any eye care needed.


I'm wondering why I never contacted these doctors sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my surgery out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Dr. Evelyn Ackermann is not only a fantastic eye doctor but has the gift of also relating to you in a personal manner and being caring. She first was my mother’s doctor (until my mom passed at age 96) and liking her caring, personal manner so very much I changed to have her as my eye doctor in 1993. Even though I now am a snow bird for six months of the year and I need to travel forty-five minutes to see her, I make all of my eye appointments to see her when I am in town. Being her patient for 25 years “speaks loudly” for what a wonderful doctor she is and for how much I trust her and am grateful for her guidance, expertise and professionalism. I recommend her to everyone!
