    Dr. Donnenfeld performed successful cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I simply couldn't be happier with the results. It's better than my best expectations. It's like I have camera lenses for eyes. It gets better everyday, as I'm only a few weeks post-op but the results are phenomenal. Dr. Donnenfeld isn't only a great surgeon, but a person of great character. You feel like you're in the best of hands when you meet him and his staff. From my results and experience,, I'll say you are.

    Thanks to the professional skill and brilliant surgical skills my life has been changed. He performed a corneal transplant on my eye with Fuch's Dystrophy. My vision is clear, the eye pain is completely gone and I am able to work, drive and live an active life. He is an exceptional physician with a kind caring manner. His surgery was highly successful and deeply appreciated.
