It’s been one month since my cataract surgery at the West Des Moines Wolfe Eye Clinic. The expert care I received from Dr. Davison and his staff was amazing. The results have far exceeded my expectations. I seriously can not believe what I can see! I highly recommend Wolfe Eye Clinic. Thank you Dr. Davison. I am beyond grateful!!!

Dr. Davison is an amazing surgeon. I was in despair, because another eye surgeon in West Des Moines in another practice botched my first cataract surgery. The IOL has moved a day or two after surgery, and the first surgeon refused to fix it. Dr. Davison fixed the other doctor's work and did the second eye. Check US News & World Report ratings, Dr. Davison does thousands of cataract surgeries a year, the other guy only a few hundred. God bless him and his staff! So grateful for my eyesight!
