Dr. Ho removed my cataracts and did a wonderful, professional, and yet personable job. I can see clearer than I have in years, and living without glasses is marvelous. He and his staff are to be commended.

Dr. Ho performed eye muscle surgery on me which made a great difference. The surgery was to align my eyes better than they were before. I was not able to read before and now I am able to move my left eye to be able to focus. Due to all of this, Dr. Ho is one of my all time heroes. He is a great doctor.

I feel like Dr. Ho is an exceptional doctor that is very professional, friendly, caring, and i love the fact that he always asks “do you have any questions”. He explains everything very well. The surgery was great, my experience and results were absolutely fantastic. I feel like I have the eyes of a 20 year old. All the staff are so friendly and helpful and easily accessible.

I wanted to add to my review. I was very nervous about having eye surgery but Dr Ho instantly put me at ease with his calm demeanor. I received after hours calls from Dr Ho after each of my surgeries showing his dedication to his patients. I am so grateful to Dr Ho and his amazing staff for restoring my vision. I would highly recommend Dr Ho

James Slafkosky – Oct 16, 2020
I had cataract surgery with Dr. Ho back in 2017. I had no idea that my vision was as bad as it was until my examination at MEC. After all the tests Dr. Ho was assigned to do my cataract surgery. I can't tell you what I experienced after the first cataract surgery when I came home and looked out my back window and my back yard never looked so bright and so beautiful. I thanked God for Dr. Ho to be able to do this for me. My eyes are still doing well and I could not be happier.

When I first met Dr. Ho he completed cataract surgery on my left eye in 2017. I returned to him this year to complete my right eye because the left eye was so successful. I have no complications with either eye. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Dr. Ho knows what he’s doing.

Dr. Ho performed a lens transplant to improve my impaired vision from cataract on Feb 24, 2020. He and his team performed flawlessly expertly inserting an new lens so that by the end of the day my vision was markedly improved. There was virtually no pain during the procedure or afterward during recovery. The post-op follow-up was very professional and assured me that I was getting the best care possible. The results were so good that I had my right eye done the following week. I highly recommend Dr. Ho and his team to anyone needing surgery to remove cataracts.

My overall experience with cataract surgery with Dr. Ho and staff was perfect! Dr. Ho is very knowledgeable and caring. I have been wearing glasses since I was 10 years old and Dr. Ho did his cataract surgery and now all I have to wear is reading glasses The staff is very professional. I would recommend Dr. Ho to all my friends and family. I am very happy I ended up at Marietta Eye Clinic.

Dr. Ho clearly explained what I could expect with my cataract surgery – thoroughly answering my questions, never making me feel rushed or that the information I sought was irrelevant. He spoke with me both evenings after surgery, providing a calm reassurance that everything was as expected. I found Dr. Ho to be very compassionate and focused on my well-being, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. I am very satisfied with the results and overall experience.

I appreciated Dr. Ho's very calming manner. He explained everything and made a somewhat frightening sounding laser surgery something not to be nervous about.

I had my cataract surgery done about 10 years ago. Before I had the surgery done my vision was almost gone. I had to drive my grandson to school everyday, but he would tell me multiple times, Grandma there is something in the road. When I saw my regular eye doctor (Dr. Posner) he told me I had catratcs, and refered me to Dr. Ho. I was so nervous but Dr. Ho was very calming. After my fisrt eye was done the results were amazing, and the next eye I was not nervous at all. I am so plaesed and happy that Dr. Ho did my cataract surgery. My results are perfect!

The process of the cataract/astigmatism correction surgery was very pleasant, and everyone was very nice and helpful. Dr. Ho was remarkable and caring, also Dr. Ho called me to check on me! The wait time was minimum and all the staff took care of me with great customer service. When I wasn’t able to make the appointment time, they were still willing to work me in. The financing department was also very helpful. The results of the surgery were excellent.
