Ratings for Dr. Michael J. Boyd
Very knowledgeable and patient Doctor. He is always ready to answer any questions and make sure you understand the situation with your eyes. Highly recommend Dr. Boyd. Thank you for letting me see again without my glasses/contacts. I'm very happy with my results.
I'm quite surprised at all of the positive reviews Dr. Boyd has received, as my experience was anything BUT positive. I saw Dr. Boyd on an urgent basis as I'd developed a sudden onset of blurry, double vision. The first tech I saw who did some eye measurements was very friendly - I initially thought he WAS Dr. Boyd, only to discover he was just a tech. When it came time for Dr. Boyd to see me, he was arrogant, condescending, and had an attitude that made it seem as though he had other places he wanted to be (surely it wasn't because he was rushed to see another patient, as there was no one else waiting in the office at the time.) He barely even looked at my problematic eye! All he did was quickly shine a light in it, proceeded to tell me that my eye "looked" normal (without doing any real testing that other optometry clinics typically do), and sent me home with drops for dry-eye. Meanwhile, my eyesight is still blurry and bothersome. I don't recommend Dr. Boyd to anyone, and I will be seeking a second opinion from a different ophthalmologist.
I went to Dr. Boyd for cataract surgery to have vision improvement. But unfortunately no improvement and I was never informed of the type of lens used. I am dissatisfied. This doctor can be more respectful and considerate and needs to accept patient symptoms and suffering. He is impatient and unwilling to listen and understand what the patient is trying to say. He wants to keep his word up no matter what. I am sorry I went to him. He looks at his patients as if they are inferior and dumb and he is such a elitist.
Had very poor eyesight (prescription into the double digits) and opted for an Intra ocular lens implant. Very satisfied with the results. Still need glasses for fine print, haven't gotten them, it's been 4 months since surgery. Halos at night either diminish/got used to dealing with them. Procedure was pricey, but I wouldn't change a thing. Brisk busy office.
My wife's decision to have Dr. Boyd perform YAG laser surgery for posterior capsulotomy after having cateract surgery in the USA, was one of the best we have ever made. My wife is an American, not yet covered by MSP, so few other ophthalmologists in BC offered treatment for her. She walked in almost legally blind and walked out 15 minutes later with her crystal clear vision restored. Dr Boyd and staff were very friendly, prompt, efficient, and reassuring.
