I had cataracts removed from both eyes by Dr. Buchanan. I had Crystalens replacements and am very happy with the results. My vision is now 20/20 and clear. I highly recommend Dr. Buchanan. His office staff is great too!

Dr Buchanan treated me as if I were family. His eye exam was far better than I had from any ophthalmologist. If I had a question he would explain in detail what was going on with my eyes. I have been to other eye Dr’s and none of them took the time or had the patience to explain what was going...more

I had my cataract surgery in May and June of 2016. Very happy with the outcome. Colors are brighter and I can see clearly now.
