Patient Comments (5)

I went to Dr. Jared Peterson because I had cataracts in both eyes. When I talked to him, I found out I could get a symfony lens which would correct my vision as well as remove the cataracts. I had the symfony lens put in both eyes and now I have 20/20 vision in both eyes and don't have to wear...more

The surgery was quick (20 minutes for one eye and 15 for the other one) with little discomfort. I was able to see very well the first day and two weeks later both eyes are 20-20 without glasses.

I was a little nervous about having cataract surgery, but Dr Peterson was VERY helpful and did a great job. I wasn't nervous at all when it came time to have the second one done. He knows his job and does it very well. I am extremely satisfied with my experience.
