I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Brown and I was very pleased with the whole experience. The surgery went well , I had no discomfort and the recovery time was minimal. He was very good with follow up visits to make sure all was well. I now do not need my distance glasses and am pretty close to reading without glasses. I have going to him for my eye check up for years and I highly recommend Dr. Brown.

Dr Brown is an excellent surgeon. I know longer have cataracts nor do I have to continue to wear mono contact lens. The lasik procedure Dr Brown performed on either eye gives me excellent vision, both for reading And distance! Not cheap but I could not put a price on my vision!
