    Had very (bad) expensive cataract surgery with Dr. Ashbury, Jr. and was not happy with the results. Although I told him at the beginning of our association that I had "Lazy Eye" all of my life which was not corrected, he never mentioned that Cataract Surgery, would not correct it and that my vision would never be "that good". It wasn't until I had the surgery in both eyes and had no improvement in the first eye, that he finally mentioned that I would never have good vision in the "Lazy Eye"
