I recently had cataract removal and and a distance lens implant performed by Dr. Maverick and the crew at Focal Point Vision. I can’t say enough good things about the whole experience. The staff, the facilities, all were the best.Thanks to all, my vision is now better than 20/20 !Bobby Craft
Very well organized office with the patient in mind! Everyone is professional yet friendly. All procedures are thoroughly explained in terms that one can understand. If your eyes need help, Focal Point Vision is for you!!!
The atmosphere at this establishment is very warm and calming. The staff is very friendly and the nurses are awesome. My appointment was with Dr Maverick. He was very professional, answered my concerns and made me feel at ease.
By Grace of God I found Dr . James D.Lehmann, you DESERVE a 1000 stars ⭐️I had a very unique procedure done almost five years ago. My ophthalmologist, couldn’t do anything for me , didn’t put any effort yet I felt like a “guinea pig “, have more than 5 people come in just to look at it , while I was having issues . No respect , this eye Dr., an older man was already set in his ways and when he couldn’t help me he shrug his shoulders “ well If you want me to call around to see who can ?” .. he never follow upBY The grace of God ( not exaggerating ) .. I starting to search myself , when googling ..Focal Point vision, Dr. Lehmann’s office ,had high reviews. A shot in the dark paid off , only by chance Dr. Lehmann has done extractions of this type of implants . I quickly booked an appointment . At this point my left eye I could NOT see , my eye was totally cloudy with build up . He quickly diagnose my situation , made a plan and off the journey started .We first took one implant out , then few weeks later did a partial cornea . Both procedure healed nicely and took the other implant out . This procedure is highly rare and for me to have found such a GIFTED eye doctor I would have been satisfied and thankful he gave me my sight back . But what puts this experience over the moon , gifted physicians like himself are mostly arrogant and lack people skills . James Lehmann , is so friendly , non-judgmental and listener; his a true gentlemen . The whole staff is very professional as well . He EVEN called my right after the surgery personally to check up on me . WHAT doctor does this now these days ?? The Alamo heights location is very nice and comfortable space . The staff look at me and greet me by my Last name even before I say anything AND the acknowledge me when I leave. Thank you James , as we discuss .. “ I dodged a bullet “ , …you’re my Hero .- [ ]
Incredible team..Dr Maverick is amazing! Gave me the gift of my sight back which has changed my outlook on life to were I'm excited and see everything in a new light! Loving care...great support, skill and follow up. I have already sent clients and friends to Focal Point Vision! I met with a client today that had his eyes done last week!!
From my first office visit I could tell all the staff are happy to be there and make the patient feel welcome and comfortable.It is the same at the surgical center in Schertz - treated as if you .are only patient.I am confident that I am receiving best care and treatment possible.I highly recommend Focal Point for cataract surgery or any eye treatment needed.
