Patient Comments (1)
in Brookfield, CT |
Dr. Johar recently performed cataract removal/lens replacement surgery on both of my eyes. Pre-op, in simple layman's terms, she explained the procedure and discussed the possible limitations re: "perfect" results given my acute myopia. Post-op, I had a few days of blurred vision due to corneal swelling and her follow-up was superb. She was accessible 24/7, scheduled extra visits to monitor progress and modified post-op drops protocols to accelerate recovery. Practical and competent!!
