Patient Comments (2)
Brooklyn, NY |
Wonderful doctor!
in Forest Hills, NY |
I had 2 surgeries done on the same eye. One was to remove a cataract and insert a crystal lense that doctor strongly recommended to me. (Had to pay extra $3k for that) Another surgery was 2 months later to remove the crystal lens that didn't work for me and insert a regular lens. I am upset about the final result. I can't see clear at a distance and nothing up close., and doctor promised that I will see clear at a distance..
