Dr. Schmidt performed cataract surgery on both eyes and changed my life. He is patient, clearly educated me about my condition and potential issues, and is a skilled surgeon. I felt comfortable knowing that Dr. Schmidt was taking excellent care of my eyes. The entire staff at the Center for Eye Care provide superior Customer service.
