Patient Comments (1)

OK for prescriptions but caused significant visual problems after cataract surgery. Doesn't do newer bloodless technique. He didn't place the lens in the sac(maybe due to too much blood) and misaligned the lens causing visual distortions and increased eye pressure. Be prepared for poor vision...more
