Went for routine cataract surgery 3/2016. Eyesight prior to procedure with corrective lenses was 20/30 and 20/60. Following surgery, I could not see at all. Prescribed eye drops and corrective glasses. I am now legally BLIND in both eyes. Treated as an inconvenience during follow up visits trying to ascertain what went so terribly wrong . Need another surgery to rectify damage. Told I had to wait weeks for medical records to go to different surgeon. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE - Rating Below 0

I am 33 years old... Dr. Panariello has been my eye specialist since I was 3! 30 years and 5 eye surgeries later, I couldn't be more thankful for the talent Dr. P has bestowed on my eyes. I had two successful cataract removal surgeries at a young age (3 & 7) and then 2 lens implant surgeries at age 11. Dr. Panariello allowed me to go from being almost legally blind, to being able to clearly see the world I live in without the aid of glasses all the time. I highly recommend Dr. Panariello!

I have had both cataracts removed by Dr. Panariello. He and his staff are fantastic! The new office is lovely and the actual procedures were quick and painless. Everything was clearly laid out and handled efficiently. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 (would have given 4 1/2, if possible) because of a couple of small glitches. But overall satisfaction is 98%!

I was legally blind prior to my surgery and now thanks to Dr. Panariello's skillful hands-and cornea donors- I can see. My vision has been restored to 20/40, after undergoing corneal transplants in both eyes.
