in Pawcatuck, CT |
I had cataract surgery on both eyes and could not be happier! Dr. Romania personally spent as much time as I needed explaining the process but more importantly on the options available to me regarding different focal points. I opted to have one set at computer distance so I can read books and my cell phone and one set father away so I can read street signs - both without glasses! Dr Romania came highly recommended to me and I also recommend him for cataract/lens replacement surgery.

Dr. Romania did very well explaining the formation and impact of cataracts on the eye and the options for cataract surgery. My surgery went well and I am happy with the results! Plus, this surgery will take 10 strokes off my golf game! The staff of Tabitha, Lisa and Nancy were extremely helpful and friendly. I am very satisfied.

Dr Romaina is the best since my childhood doctor who saved my one eye after a nine year battle with 3 major operations and countless minor ones.
