I wore bi-focal glasses for 40 years and he took care of my a stigma and cataracts and I am now glasses free! Very professional and did what he told me he could do--no more glasses.

Dr. Balok has been my eye care professional for at least twenty years. He is the consummate professional; I trust him completely. Having just completed my second cataract surgery, I am more than satisfied with the outcome. In fact, I'm thrilled to be seeing so well.

Dr. Balok put new lens in both my eyes after cataract surgery. I now have excellent vision in both of my eyes and I couldn't be happier with my results. I would highly recommend him!! Everyone in the office is so nice and professional.

My cataract experience on March 2nd with Dr. Balok(East China office/RDH) is a positive one in all respects. I was at 20/20 at one week after my surgery. Awesome!! His knowledge and ability along with his support staff is top notch. All questions were received and answered pleasantly and professionally. I highly recommend!
