Dr. Mathe is so attentive and wants to provide me great care and a great experience. I especially appreciate this as she knows I can have adverse reactions to the eye drops used during exams.

Patient | September 19, 2016

For the first time in my life (I am 81) I have been fitted with Contact Lenses by Dr. Mathe which have enabled me to see with better than 20/20 precision! I am so grateful to her and the Vanderbilt Eye Clinic. She is truly a star and came to my aid immediately when something fell from a shelf and seemed more terrible than it has turned out to be. Because Dr. Ewald has left Vanderbilt, she has offered to to guide me to a new Ophtalmologist when one arrives in November. I feel very well-cared for!!
