As a cataract surgeon with over 25 years experience, a researcher, and a former major university faculty member who taught ophthalmology , when my time came to have my own cataract surgery my wife and I drove 3 hours to Fort Collins in order to have Dr. Foster do it. I couldn't be more pleased....more

Dr Foster is an excellent surgeon but if you have problems or need follow-up after the initial surgery, Dr. Foster is not available and you must see another doctor with a six to eight week lead time.
