With my Low Vision Karen Rice OD does wonders in fitting me with glasses to make the most of the Vision I have left.

I was referred to 'this provider' for a 'low vision' exam and subsequent prescription for stronger glasses to improve my glaucoma/macular problem. I expect to be as pleased with my glasses as I was w/Karen Rice: excellent exam.

This was a diagnostic visit. Dr. Rice fitted a hard contact lens onto my affected eye. When she saw that it made no difference in my vision, she had her answer. She explained it to me, and then we were done. Very efficient.

Very good visit overall. Two small suggestions: The front desk clerk might have greeted me more warmly and I didn't know the tech's name or position until a minute or two after she came in the room because she didn't start with an introduction. At first, I wondered if she was the doctor.

Dr. Rice's expertise in helping patients with compromised and limited vision is a BOON to the patients of Devers Eye Institute. I am very grateful that Judy in Dr. Mansberger's practice recommended that I see Dr Rice. Because of the state of my eyes, it is difficulty for me to get an accurate refraction. Dr. Rice understood that. The two "Karens" are an excellent team!

I see Dr. Rice for low vision monitoring and care (my eye doctor, Stephen Mansberger MD, is also at Devers Eye Clinic). I cannot recommend her enough! She has always checked my records carefully before my annual visit (Shari Katz in Low Vision Rehab will have also interviewed me) and is ready to discuss any problems and to ask questions as well. I have complete trust in her and have received excellent advice and care, so that I leave the clinic always relieved of any anxiety about my eyes--this is essential in cases of vision loss + glaucoma--and with all questions carefully addressed. The teamwork at Devers is so impressive and supportive--I feel truly fortunate to have Dr. Rice (along with Dr Mansberger and Ms. Katz) as my eye care providers.

I saw this provider for the first time due to my previous provider moving out of the area. Neither the ophthalmic technician nor the doctor introduced themselves to me even though we had never met. They seemed to assume I knew who they were.

this visit was to an optometrist who re-examined my vision for my first pair of glasses ever. The Dr who did the first exam didn't get accurate results which resulted in a wrong prescription for the first glasses I picked up. After being examined by Dr Karen Rice, my glasses are the correct prescription.

I was transferring care from an non-LHS provider to Dr. Rice. Both Dr. Rice and her assistant checked to make sure they had my old medical records to review after my visit. I was very impressed with the care and attention I received throughout the check in, intake, exam and Dr. Rice's instructions. I am very happy to have transferred my care here.

having a difficult time having my visit and contact lenses sent through insurance and finding anyone that knows about this. I waited a week to pick my contacts up since the dept that handles claims and billing wouldn't contact me I went in and nothing had been billed to insurance and nothing had been verified. still having difficulties finding anyone that knows what's going on. waiting for a call back from the office manager. Billing is ran poorly for the office

I went to Karen Rice for an eye exam as I had not had an eye exam in over 8 years. Her nurse, Karen, checked my existing prescription and checked the pressure in my eyes, she was very thoughtful, communicative and thorough. I was impressed by her friendly nature. Karen Rice was also friendly, professional, and did not rush me out of the office. She explained what she was doing each step of the way and was fantastic. I couldn't be more pleased with my visit....! I'll be back again next year.

Dr. Rice and staff are amazing--compassionate and highly competent. when I was quite frightened over my vision challenges, Dr. Rice made special efforts to reassure me and to hasten the time for me to get my scleral contacts in time for a special visit from my grandsons who live outside this country. I cannot thank her enough.
