Dr. Fox and the team at ICON are amazing. Highly recommend Dr. Fox if you are in need of eye surgery. I can’t believe how well my recovery has gone! Dr. Fox and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in detail to me. I felt very prepared for the surgery even with my nerves. The clinic itself is very clean and runs efficiently. Staff are friendly and responsive. Thank you to Dr. Fox and his team at ICON Eyecare!
Great facility, the staff are wonderful and Dr. Fox is very personable and has only your interests at heart. He wants you to make the best decision for your style of lifestyle. Definitely a place to recommend.

If you are looking for a great eye surgeon, I highly recommend Dr. James Fox. He is very professional. In addition, and most important to me, he is compassionate, listened to, and answered all of my questions.

The Doctors and their support staff at ICON were courteous, professional, and extremely competent. The results are spectacular: I can see better than I have at any time in my life; colors are more vivid and best of all I no longer need any correction for working on my computer. It is like a miracle.
