I saw Dr. Amir for cataract surgery and told him I wanted a monovision lens ...he told me I wouldn't be able to see with a monovision lens and insisted I have a more expensive ($2,800) lens. I had a hard time focusing with the expensive lens and went to UCLA, world famous Jules Stein Center and talked with Dr. Joseph Caprioli, who told me that UCLA evaluates all the new lens that come on the market and none of them have been able to compare with the old standard monovision lens.

I would like to say that I have gone to Dr Amir several times over the years and not had an issue. In March he told me I needed cataract surgery due to cataracts in both eyes. I went to another Dr today and I do not have 2 cataracts, only one(grade 1) out of 1-4 being worst. Happy to know I do not need surgery and not happy being lied to for the sake of money. I saw the photos today and trust my second opinion is the right one.
