I would highly recommend Dr. Amiel and his staff at Omni Eye Specialists to anyone needing cataract surgery. I had all the fear and concerns most facing this type of surgery experience. The procedure went very smoothly and took about seven minutes. Within an hour after surgery I could tell the sight in this eye was remarkably better. I couldn't wait to get the other eye done, which I did two weeks later. It's a whole new life with 20/20. Best thing I've done for myself in a long time!!

Dr. Amiel is wonderful. He is kind and understanding, and takes his time with his patients, never rushing you out the door. He answers questions carefully and in such a way that it is easy to understand his instructions and answers. He performed my cataract surgery on both eyes, and I could not be happier with the results. I cannot thank him enough and would highly recommend him to family, friends, and anybody that will listen.
