"I just finished my second Cataract surgery with Dr. Yaplee. It was successful just as the first surgery. Dr. Yaplee is knowledgeable, experience and personable. His staff members are also friendly and knowledgeable. I thank God that he is my doctor."



"have been to other places and I have to say this place had the most comfortable bed. I have a sensitive lower back and when I got up from the table after my treatment my back felt wonderful. Emma is the RN who treated me and she was so sweet and knowledgeable. I felt super comfortable the entire time and well looked after. And I’ve already seen results just after one time."



"Everyone at triangle eye institute has been wonderful. Friendly and knowledgeable recently I have been getting treatments from Emma. Her professionalism is top notch and her relate-ability makes you feel comfortable upon walking in.
