About Me:

My clinical interest is in the improvement of my patients' lives through personalized compassionate care, with an emphasis on preservation and restoration of vision and eye health. I fulfill this interest through the comprehensive management of a wide variety of eye-related health conditions. These conditions range from highly acute issues like ophthalmic trauma, angle closure, and ocular inflammation, through more chronic diseases like diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. I also enjoy seeing healthy eyes, where I have the opportunity to educate my patients on how to maintain excellent eye health. One of my favorite things to do for my patients is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can safely and effectively restore sight to an otherwise visually-disabled eye. Even better, with only a slight modification in technique and instrumentation, I can take cataract surgery to developing countries and help tackle one of the worlds leading causes of curable blindness.

Dr Acohido and also his assistant listened carefully and answered my questions fully. If I needed clarification Dr Acohido explained very clearly and in a friendly way. I felt he really cared to make me understand and I felt very comfortable.

Wait time to be called in for appointment was about 30 mins past scheduled appointment. I then waited for 45+ mins after eyes were dilated to see the doctor.

Very accommodating as this appointment was originally scheduled [date removed] as a yearly exam, but with recent concerns about my eyesight. There was a cancellation, so I was able to see Dr. Acohido on [date removed]. Staff is super nice!

As a result of my first visit to this providers office a problem was discovered in my eyes which no previous Opthamologist, optometrist nor any of their assistants commented on. Given the severity of the problem and the treatment plan this provider has provided, I feel I have avoided what could have been a serious problem and am indebted to his assistant who noticed the problem and to this provider who confirmed it's existence and the need to address it asap.

The scheduler sent me to the wrong doctor at the wrong office so I had to rush across town to make this appointment. No apologies and no one seemed surprised.

Everyone in the office is always professional and courteous. Dr. Acohido is always pleasant and extremely excellent at his work. He is sincere about his my concerns and issues and does whatever he can to insure that I understand everything that is going on with my eyes and how diabetes plays a role in that.

Dr Acohido always presents a positive attitude. He makes sure to not rush or minimize our concerns or questions. Since he also treats our disabled daughter, he always includes her in his review of our family concerns. We think this is very considerate of him & a wise practice to follow. We make future annual appointments for the next year as we leave.

Very very good. Doc was terrific, both bedside manner and the surgery he did on my eye. I couldn't be more pleased. The only downside is the length of time it takes to get an appointment.

Dr. Blake Acohido, Brian-tech-, and 2 front office clerks were very professional, friendly, and showed care during my opthalmology appt.....the clinic office was very safety conscious with masking and other safety precautions during this visit while in the pandemic....the diagnosing and technology is getting better for eye appts plus this office made it nice and relaxed....i would refer anyone to Dr. Acohido and his team....the humor during the visit was very heartwarming, as its nerve wracking to see how one's eyes have changed..much appreciated, and thanks so much....

My visit was amazing, Dr was friendly, personable and very knowledgeable, more importantly he was willing and able to articulate that knowledge. My only negative experience was in playing phone tag trying to make the appointment. I would get return calls from unlisted and out of the area locations which typically appear like spam calls, so my phone would junk them I now have four numbers saved to my contacts for his office that are not his office and never was called by the same number eventually I had to drive to the office to make the appointment

Excellent care. Dr. Acohido was very good to talk with and was genuinely interested in what I had to say about my vision issues.The young woman who did the initial eye testing was also excellent! She was very confident and competent along with being very easy to talk with. She did a great job explaining the testing. I'm sorry that I don't remember her name so that I could give her proper credit for a job well done.Overall, a great visit!
