Patient Comments (2)
in Middletown, CT |
My doctor is Alan Stern MD of New Britain. I had cataract surgery done by him in August 2017 @Hartford Hospital Eye Center Willard Av Newington CT. All I can say: it is wonderful to see again without 'the big blur'! Five years ago, Dr. Stern removed a cataract from my other eye at the same location. He is excellent, and a very experienced eye doctor. I always felt confidence to trust him with the awesome gift of my eyesight!
