I couldn't have asked for better treatment or outcome. The staff at both your office and the surgical center are superior by every measure. They are professional, knowledgeable and respectful of all patients. It was almost a fun experience! Although the cataracts in both eyes had impaired my vision, the thought of eye surgery was scary. But - my fears were all for "naught" - it was such a quick, PAINLESS procedure, I wondered why I had waited so long!
