Dr Friend performed cataract surgery on my eyes about 7 months ago. What a great experience! All was explained and my vision is wonderful. Like seeing in HD. Thank you to the staff and Dr Friend. Have a great summer.

Very efficient, well organized office. I was called into the office on time and was very pleased with the technician’s knowledge and exam. Dr. Friend is very thorough and checked all aspects of my eyes, answering my questions and making sure I was comfortable with the tests.

A very thorough examination in a clean and friendly environment. The staff smiles and is always accomodating. Dr. Friend takes the time to go over any issues and has a great sense of humor. He also performed two lens replacements a year ago. I am pleased to report that I have maintained 20/20 vision with no side effects. I am very pleased with Eye Care Associates.

Five years ago Dr. Friend performed lens replacement surgery on both of my eyes. I had been seeing him for regular eye exams prior to that and every year since. Dr. Friend always takes the time to answer any questions I have. I am never sorry for having the lens replacement surgery. I have not needed glasses since. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.

I want to thank you so very much for doing two of my cataracts.  I thought you might be interested in my observations during the day of my surgery in the medical arts building.  The receptionist who greeted everyone and put the drops in everyone’s eyes was VERY VERY cordial and sweet and efficient.  I saw people coming in scheduled for surgery looking frightened and nervous, on the way out there were very happy and relieved, including myself.  I am writing this to say how busy I saw you and everyone else working there.  I hope you remember to have your days off and take good care of yourself.  Thanks again Dr. Friend (The Friendly Doctor, perfect name).


Went to an eye doctor for a cornea issue that was beyond her scope. She recommended Dr. Friend. He is incredibly thorough and polite. Smart, honest, direct and competent. His assistants are well trained and they work together very well. After my long-time terrible eye doctor in Midland Park, I now am in excellent hands. Very pleased and would highly recommend!

I would like to take this time to thank you for the excellent treatment I was given by you and your staff over the past two years. You have been nothing but professional in your diagnosis, surgery, and aftercare for the cataract and cornea surgeries you performed on both my eyes.

Your knowledge of the latest technique in cornea transplants has made my life significantly better. With very little discomfort, and a much shorter recovery time, I was able to return to my normal activities (especially golf), in a relatively short period of time.

The gift of sight should never be taken for granted. I thank God there are surgeons like you that can help give that gift. I certainly would recommend you to anyone for the very best eye care.

This ophthalmologist makes sure my prescriptions are up to date. He has yet to falter with any of my contacts and glasses. He is very efficient, and knows what he’s doing. He is very intelligent and personable. The staff is accommodating along with the comfortable waiting room.

I lead a very active lifestyle and it’s so nice not to have to bother with contacts when I’m getting ready to go for a run or out on a bike ride.

Seana O’ Connell

I gave up on contacts after having to work such long hours and glasses just weren’t cutting it.  Getting the surgery was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!

Clare O’Connell

I came I to the office for an emergency and they saw me right away and made sure that I didn’t have to wait. Dr Adam Friend and staff were professional and kind and answered all my questions including follow up the next day

As always, the best of medical care; the most kind and professional staff. Dr. Adam Friend is a superb surgeon and a most caring individual for his patients.

Mornings in my house are nuts, between trying to get myself ready for work while simultaneously trying to get my daughter ready for day care.  It’s so nice not to have to worry about putting contacts in or where I put my glasses… I can just get up and go!
