I had a cataract in my right eye in the left eye was good. She replace the lens in the right eye and it was a total breeze she is so professional and caring. She had some difficulty getting the correction that was needed due to the fact that I had Lasic surgery previously. I didn't realize that this permanently change the thickness of the cornea. She was able though to give me 2020 vision even with that complication. I was really concerned about the surgery and she made me feel at ease.

Dr. McCabe has treated my eyes for glaucoma and cataracts. She is professional, caring, and excellent at her profession. She never stops educating herself and has titles that as few as 25 doctors in the US have attained. Very informative, she answers any and all questions you ask. Surgery's a breeze with her expertise. She gave me back my eye sight! Is there anything more important than that? This is what she cares about most, Your Eye sight. I would never think of going elsewhere.

Dr McCabe came in after surgery to see my husband who had shingles on his face and going into his eye. If Dr McCabe had not seen him when she did my husband could have lost his vision. Thank you Dr McCabe for caring so much about your patients to see them after hours.

I was seen by Doctor Cathleen McCabe for cataract surgery and given full tests...and even then my interview with was FAST and non-formative [ten minutes MAX] on a serious permanent surgery. I had to ASK if it was reversible as I read some are. They set a surgery date for early January. I had to go home and read up on what Dr McCabe was even talking about and the ramifications of lens replacement surgery. (I can say a neighbor loves her - had it done and swears by her.)
