      This was my first experience with Dr. Kaplan for removal of a cataract on my right eye. I had Lasik to correct my vision 18 years ago and he explained that patients who have had that procedure might not have the best outcome after cataract surgery and could possibly require glasses to correct their vision. He was very thorough in taking all the necessary measurements prior to my procedure to insure the best results. I am happy to report that I ended up with 20/20 vision!

      Great and would defiantly recommend to a friend
      in Milford, CT |
      Dr. Kaplan has done my cataract surgery for both eyes. Him and his staff were exceptional on all levels. His expertise goes without saying but his level of patience and care stands out among the rest.
      in Trumbull, CT |
      His explanation of procedure (cataract surgery) was thorough and clear, and he was prepared to answer as many questions as I had. I never had the feeling that he was rushed, and has a sense of humor, which is always appreciated. His office staff is pleasant and helpful.
      in Stratford, CT |
      I visited Dr Kaplan's office and I was so impressed to see how warm and caring he actually is. Doctors can come across intimidating and too unapproachable but Dr. Kaplan is the opposite of that. Thank you for your caring nature and please never let anything change such a rare quality in your field.
      in Bridgeport, CT |
      Dr. Kaplan is a wonderful doctor that cares not only about your eyes and vision but your overall well being. Highly recommended.
      in Connecticut |
      I was a patient of Dr. Kaplan's for more than 3 years. He performed cataract removals and lens implants on both eyes and monitored my eyes for complications of diabetes. But when I changed insurers to Medicaid his office dropped me like a hot rock and could not provide a single recommendation. So all his "caring" is really a facade.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
