"Had lens implant in left eye from cataracts couple weeks ago. Vision is 20/15. Right eye surgery this Monday. Vision today seems to be close to 20/15 also. Extremely excited! Seeing details at over 100 yards I’ve not seen in several years! Dr. Newbolt does great work! Entire staff is very considerate and helpful. Thanks very much."

"Dr. McFarland did my cataract surgery and Dr. Newbolt did the follow up YAG laser procedure. The results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Newbolt is going to do LASIK surgery on my right eye to make a minor adjustment. I am very happy with the care I received at McFarland Eye Care. Doctors McFarland and Newbolt did a great job. They carefully explained what they were going to do and what I should expect. The technicians were very polite and professional. The scheduling lady worked with me to get me in quickly for follow up visits. McFarland Eye Care should be used by other eye clinics as an example of how to do it right."

"I had developed cataracts the last few years in Wynne. I chose Dr. Newbolt and McFarlands to hopefully correct them. The team did a great job. Even though Covid-19 interrupted treatment, they did not forget me. I see better and the team took care of me afterwards."
