Patient Comments (2)
in Cumming, GA |
RK in '93 caused cornea to be very, very flat; in addition eye depth is 27mm.. Hearing that, I wanted a cataract and cornea specialist. Dr. Cook was recommended by a neighbor. Because of the above 2 problems, getting an exact reading was difficult. The surgery on my right eye was performed early February. I am blown away - my vision is perfect. I am excited that my left eye will be done next week. He is awesome - cares deeply about what he does and your results. Highly recommend.
After cataract surgery I now have double vision because, according to Dr. Cook, I didn't pay the $1,400 for special corrective lense. Also, now need extra strength reading glasses for same reason. I was told Medicare covered surgery 100% only to be charged $295 the day of the surgery. His solution is to wait 6 months (with double vision) then have lasic surgery. My solution: Get a different Doctor.
