Dr. Shatz and his staff were amazing. From the very 1st visit they made me feel comfortable. It took me a year to listen to my doctor and finally go to Sight Trust but I am glad I did. I wore glasses for years the surgery was fast and I had no discomfort. I am at 20/15 a week later. No glasses even for reading and computer work. Again, Amazing. Thank you so much, Debra Canter

Dr. Shatz runs a high-end lens-replacement factory operation. The run-up to the replacement is all about assessing your needs and telling you how good your life wil be with no more cataracts and new "premium" lenses circa $5,000.00 per eye. I see much better than before, but almost a year post-surgery one eye still sees fuzzy images and Shatz and Company is not returning my phone calls about making that better. My recommendation: find someone who cares about the patient than the money.
Thank you for your comment. I apologize that you were unable to reach my practice by phone or email; we take pride in getting in touch with our patients within 1-2 days. I am glad that your vision has improved since surgery and look forward to discussing the next steps to get you seeing to the best of your abilities! Please contact me on my personal email so that we can schedule a meeting. I look forward to seeing you! ashatz@sighttrust.com

Extremely professional office all around! I couldn't be happier with the results of my surgery. I had three office visits for the full procedure: 1) Initial consultation 2) Day of surgery 3) Day after surgery
