How do you thank someone for giving you your life back. He gave me the eyesight I had in my teens. He is a very gifted man that has many years of experience that he has used to give those that he serves.

I would and do recommend Dr Katzman to friends and family members. I received phenomenal care from Dr Katzman and his wonderful staff. I found out that I needed immediate surgery for cataracts and was so frightened going into my first appointment. Dr Katzman saw me immediately and put all my fears to rest. He suggested the best option for me which was the Multifocal IOL. I couldn't be more pleased. I have wonderful vision now and almost no down time. Great Work!!!

It was difficult for me to see properly (even with glasses) until Dr. Katzman removed my cataracts in 2014 with special corrective lenses to deal with my astigmatism. From the time I was a child, I could never go without my glasses even in the house. After the surgeries, I could do things around the house (even watch TV) without my glasses. This is quite a feat for someone who lived approximately 70 years with the extreme astigmatism that I was diagnosed with.
