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.

When I entered, there was a man in the waiting room who was not wearing his mask. He had it pulled down under his chin. It would be helpful to have a sign on the door asking everyone to wear their masks and keep them on upon entering the office. I mentioned it to the staff, he heard me and put on his mask. Otherwise, i witnessed staff disinfecting surfaces whenever anyone exited the office and overall procedures were good.

Legacy really lucked out when they got Blake Acohido to manage their ophthalmology teams. He has helped me so much. When I needed cornea surgery he spoke with Dr. Terry and made that happen for me. Something about eye Dr.'s- they are so consistently professional and kind. Dr. Acohido and Dr. Terry are the best in my book. I sure wish the rest of Legacy was as professional.

Dr Acohido is great. Score of 10. His office however is a 5. Old equipment, slow check-in (people in line and only one person at the window helping).

This was an amazing visit for my first visit to this clinic. When I checked in it was noted that my appointment date was the day before. I was disappointed that I put the appointment on the wrong date in my calendar. The receptionist noted my disappointment and checked with the physician to see if I could be seen that afternoon. She was able to get me in just a few minutes after I noted my mistake. I can't thank this receptionist enough - she was empathic, caring, professional and respectful. I am so grateful for her efforts to get me seen that day and for her genuine understanding and compassion. She is truly a gift to the patients that come to this clinic. The individual that conducted my eye exam was informative and had a high level of expertise. She put me at ease and took the time to answer my questions. My visit with Dr. Acohido was one of the most informative and helpful physician visits I have ever had. He took the time to do a thorough eye exam and history and asked me helpful questions that gave him even a deeper understanding of my condition. He treated me with respect and compassion and demonstrated a genuine desire to find out why I was experiencing the symptoms I am having. I came away from the visit with a clear understanding of possible diagnoses, further diagnostic tests and specialist visits, treatment plan, timeline and follow-up plan. I can't say enough about how professional and kind Dr. Acohido was, how helpful the eye examiner was and how amazing and patient-centered the clinic receptionist was - I am so grateful and appreciative of the care and treatment I received at this outstanding clinic.

My primary care doctor recommended Dr. Acohido. I trust her judgement and she sent me to an excellent ophthalmologist who is a very nice person. I feel lucky to be in Dr. Acohido's care. My wife will see him too. The woman who dilated my eyes, checked my pressure and tested my vision was also excellent. I don't know her name.

The only bad thing is the wait to see the dr. No matter how early I get there I am always over an hour there. Mostly waiting. When my sister asked why they told her on really set appointments.

I came back from vacation in Hawaii needing to have sutures removed from my eye My primary care was not able to remove them. Dr Acohido went out of his way to fit me into the schedule . He was able to remove my sutures and prescribed the correct eye ointment for me. He was very kind, personable and professional. Thank you!

Doctor is very good and extremely nice. He takes his time and is never in a hurry. I feel like I could spend as much time as I needed with him. very good at what he does and knowledgeable, which I appreciate. I have seen several doctors regarding my issues with dry eye and he is the first doctor to take it seriously and help me.

appointment was at 3:30. I waited 15 or more min. then saw assistant. She did a good job. I waited for doctor for a long time in cold office and he comes in at 4:55 and I see him less than 10 min and office was closed or appeared to be at that time. I didn't feel like a valued patient but a obligation to complete visit.

Absolutely wonderful doctor. Knowledgeable, explained technical information in an easy-to-understand manner. Personable, explained what he did, confirmed my impressions, and explained all questions. Dr. A thinks his field fascinating, and it shows. He has a strong knowledge base, made good recommendations, and appropriate referral for treatment. Honest, straight forward..Everything I hope for in a doc.

Dr. Acohido is a wonderful provider and I feel very confident in his expertise. My husband will be going to him soon! He diagnosed an eye problem I had previously been seen by 5 different doctors in the past that didn't take my eye issue seriously. I can now read at night and my quality of life has improved because of him!

This appointment was at the Emanuel Devers andI needed to schedule further testing with Good Sam. The scheduling system was not working for them and they weren't able to schedule the testing. I was told they would call me when IS had fixed their computer issues to schedule the appointment.
