Patient Comments (9)

I am legally blind w/o my glasses. Dr. Lin gave me my cataract surgery options which were limited because of my poor vision. It ended up being straight mono focus lenses. Even then, my lenses had to be specially ordered. I had no pain and minimal swelling from the surgeries. Follow up visits...more

The service providers were excellent: friendly, patient and very knowledgeable. Very busy day, so the wait was long. Exactly two hours when done...be great if it was 1 hour or so. 2 hours was a little too long. By the time I saw the doctor, he seemed to be in a hurry.

Dr. Lin is, first of all, very professional and also very friendly. My improved eyesight tells me that he is also a fine eye surgeon.
