I've had Dr. Tunis do both of my eyes for cataract surgery and installing lens. I now do not have to use glasses for my day to day operations as I have for many years. The operation was fast, easy and painless and I immediately could see well. I recommend anyone that is having any eye problems go to Scott Tunis. He can help you. more »

everything was planned smoothly and executed flawlessly by Dr Tunis and staff. I still follow up each year to keep my eyes tuned as best as possible. He always goes the extra steps to make sure you're good as can be. more »

Dr. Tunis literally changed my life. The process was so quick and easy, I only wish I had done it years before. The whole staff is wonderful too. I was so happy with my experience, I decided to give this gift to my 22 year old son as well. No more glasses for either of us and we both see beautifully now! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Tunis and staff!!! more »

Dr. Tunis and his entire staff are top of the line. Had cataract surgery and things went beautifully. Have had a couple of issues unrelated to the cataract surgery and Dr. Tunis quickly made an evaluation of the problem and future course of action. He takes his time to explain things and is so understanding about multiple questions. I honestly believe that there is not a finer eye doctor in Wilmington or the surrounding area.. more »

I would highly recommend Dr. Tunis. His staff is friendly and helpful. My appointments have all been honored on time, with just a few minutes of waiting. Sometimes, no waiting at all. Dr. Tunis himself, is very personable, warm and tuned into his patients. I can say this in the plural because he has treated my mother. I always leave his office feeling upbeat and happy. OH, and most importantly, he made the process of a cataract removal easy and smooth, allaying all my fears. more »

Dr. Tunis and staff are wonderful! My husband and I both had wonderfully successful cataract surgeries by Dr. Tunis. You can't find a better staff in a Doctor's office. They are all so kind, caring and friendly, yet professional! Dr. Tunis corrected a previous surgery by another doctor for me. We always recommend Dr. Tunis to anyone needing cataract surgery. more »

I had an excellent LASIK experience with Dr. Scott Tunis. He is very knowledgable but tries to keep everything as casual as possible. I went in for preliminary exams and everyone was very friendly and professional. I was able to schedule my surgery a week after the first tests. The nurses explained everything, answered all my questions and walked me through every step of the process. The surgery itself took no more than 15 minutes and I felt absolutely no pain. Again, Dr. Scott talked me through the entire procedure making me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. My recovery time consisted of a few hours of napping and eye drops for 2 weeks afterwards - again all laid out for me. So far, everything is still great! more »
