Our Vision

We will transform the eye care experience through a culture of caring for our patients and their families, providing quality eye care services and procedures through innovation and technical excellence, and improving patient lives through preventing, curing, and treating eye disease.

The Harman Story

It’s a visual world. Make the most of it.

The Harman Eye Center was founded in 1988 with a focus on providing the highest quality eye care and superior service to our patients. We have since grown to include multiple locations and have established our own Harman Eye Surgery Center and dedicated LASIK center. Our success is attributed to our patient-focused, specialized care and our commitment to staying at the forefront of proven ophthalmic technology.

At Harman Eye Center, we are committed to providing excellent service and compassionate care for each patient. No question is too small - we always listen to our patients’ needs allowing for a seamless experience, whether it’s a regular eye exam or a surgical procedure. A number of eye surgeries and cosmetic procedures are offered to not only improve your vision but your overall quality of life.

Harman Eye Center offers an MD/OD practice model, which also incorporates our optical centers. We are the first and only regional ophthalmology practice to offer our patients this choice and convenience. We are the only practice in the region to use the VICTUS Femtosecond laser for cataract surgery and all Laser LASIK surgery. Our Surgery Center, with a patient satisfaction rate of 98%, offers patients lower costs, advanced technology and a convenient alternative to a traditional surgery setting.

David M. Harman M.D. leads our team of experienced eye care professionals. He has performed thousands of refractive surgeries since 1993 and LASIK surgeries since 1999. Dr. Harman performs cataract surgery, as well as laser surgery to treat conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, and secondary cataracts. We currently have three ophthalmologists and six optometrists across our region and we are expanding to accommodate our growing patient base and to serve our patients better. We also have a dedicated and patient-focused staff that cares for our patients at all of our practices including the Harman Eye Surgery Center.

Harman Eye Center locations participate with Medicare, most major insurance plans, and most vision plans. As a courtesy to our patients, we will file both your primary and secondary insurance forms. We accept CareCredit financing to help meet the needs of our patients. Also, to fit your schedule some of our practices offer evening hours by appointment – plus if you have an urgent eye care need we also offer same day appointments. Come see for yourself why Harman Eye Center is the right choice for your complete vision care needs.

  • “I don’t know what heaven is like, but his surgery center might be close. Everything was bright and clean as can be.”

    - Georgia, Glaucoma and cataract removal patient

  • "I received my eye care at the Amherst practice and I was pleased with my every part of my visit from scheduling my appointment all the way through to picking up my glasses. Everyone I encountered was friendly and knowledgeable. I wanted advice on my choice of glasses and the optician was so helpful in narrowing down my frame choice too."

    - Bryan, Routine eye exam and optical patient

  • “On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate Dr. Harman a 10. He’s a terrific doctor.”
