Dr. Folden is caring, trustworthy and knowledgeable. He answers questions clearly and listens intently to concerns. I had cataract surgery & pd. extra up front to have a lens that would correct my astigmatism/myopia, as well. Dr. Folden communicated clearly that the results may be unpredictable since I had previous LASIK surgery to correct high myopia. Though my eyes are still healing from a PRK touch-up procedure, I feel optimistic and have better vision than before. Thank you Dr. Folden!!

I went in for cataract surgery not needing glasses, except for occasionally for reading. Now I need to wear glasses all the time. I told Dr. Folden hunting was very important to me. Now I can't focus through my rife scope with my shooting eye. Dr.Folden said he could improve my vision a little, for $1000 an eye. He was paid for the cataract surgery now he wants more money, to fix what he did not get right the first time. I would not recommend Dr. Folden !!
