"I have been dealing with Glaucoma for the past 25 years. I was put under the care of Dr. Laura Voicu at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA. She treated me for 18 months and performed Trabeculectomy surgeries on both eyes. Both surgeries were very successful. Dr. Voicuis a very compassionate, knowledgeable, and caring Physician and Surgeon. She is very thorough and carefully explains all aspects of your care. Of the numerous Doctors that have treated my Glaucoma she stands above the rest.Outstanding. I highly recommend Dr. Voicu for the treatment of Glaucoma."- T.D. / Google / Oct 30, 2017

"Vold Vision deserves 5 stars for the following; Patient care is consistently above average. The doctors are prompt, courteous, and speak with me each and every time as a partner in determining the best medical options for myself. I never feel rushed. I feel safe and above all I feel informed. The staff is always pleasant and greets me with a smile. Their waiting room is extremely well appointed. Coffee, tea, water, plug ins for electronics, and tv. Not that I ever get to use these because they are always on time to take me back to see the doctor! The bathrooms, waiting areas and exams rooms are spotless. I am a fan of Vold Vision and I think you will be too!"- F.O. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2019
"Recently changed eye doctors, the staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. I saw Dr. Hendricks, she was very confident in her skills, extremely personable, very receptive to what I had to say, easy to talk to, and that made me feel very comfortable with the service I was getting. It was quick and effortless. I have nothing but positive things to say about her and Vold as a whole. I highly recommend going to Vold Vision if you are looking for somewhere to take care of you!"- J.B. / Yelp / Aug 07, 2019

Free Infant Exams
Vold Vision is proud to participate in the InfantSEE Program, providing free infant exams from birth to age one. From birth, babies begin exploring the wonders in the world with their eyes. Even before they learn to reach and grab with their hands or crawl and sit-up, their eyes are providing information and stimulation important for their development. Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. Eye and vision problems in infants can cause developmental delays. It is important to detect conditions early to ensure babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn. To schedule your baby’s free exam, call our Vold Vision team at 479-442-8653.
