Patient Comments (1)
in Lakewood Ranch, Fl |
I recently had a laser procedure done to clear some cloudiness of my 2 year old cataract surgery. Left eye was done on 3/3/17.......WOW, what a difference. It took all of maybe 1-2 minutes, and I was out the door. Dr. Foster in my previous appointment, told me what was going on, and how common the problem was, and explained in detail what he would do to correct the cloudiness of both eyes. Can't wait to get the other eye done in April! The staff is very nice, knowledgeable, and professional.
