Patient Comments (1)
in Winter Park, CO |
Dr. Ammons did a wonderful job, several years ago, in PAINLESSLY (and I was awake) surgically removing my cataracts, and putting in new (artificial, acrylic) lenses. My vision is better now (crisp, clear), than it ever was. Colors are vibrant, natural, and I still marvel at this great result of his cataract surgery on (both) my eyes. If anyone wants to speak with me, about my good experiences with Dr. Ammon's cataract surgery, call my cell, at 970-531-5000. Carol Sidofsky (retired RN/nurse).
