Patient Comments (9)

After what I thought would be a routine glasses adjustment, Dr. Dexter advised me that I had cataracts which required surgery. I couldn't have chosen a more qualified doctor. Dr. Dexter was upfront about my problem, along with the various corrective procedures that could be done through surgery. His confidence in the surgery put my mind at ease. In addition to removing the cataracts I had my vision corrected. Glasses were no longer needed. Dr. Dexter was the best choice I could have made. 100%.

My husband had Cataract surgery along with Symfony Lens implants in both his eyes. Dr. Dexter took time to explain the procedures and was very knowledgeable. We trusted him. My husband is so happy with the results, feeling like his vision is as good as it when 40 years ago. We would recommend Dr. Dexter without a doubt!! And would certainly recommend the Symfony Lens surgery as well!!! Very happy!

I'm very happy with My surgery outcome. I now have 20/20 vision in both of my eyes. Thank you Dr. Dexter!

Dr. Dexter took great care to fully explain what my problems were, how to best approach my cataract surgery to accommodate my lifestyle and what results could be expected. Everything turned out really well and I could not be more pleased! Thanks Dr. Dexter!

I was diagnosed with a cataract in my left eye. Dr Justin Dexter was suggested to me and I could not of been more pleased. On the day of the surgery, I was treated to a leisure chair, a massage, a warm blanket and a great staff. The operation went perfect and my wife got to take home a beautiful plant! My vision in my left eye is near perfect. If you are considering cataract surgery, look no further. If and when the day comes to have my right eye done, I know where I'll be going.

Cocky, didn't like how he interacted with staff, didn't like how he talked to me, overall was not impressed, probably a good doctor but lousy social skills. Very dissapointing, going to find a whole new group to see for eye care.
in Manlius, NY |
Dr. Dexter performed laser cataract surgery on both my eyes in July. I was scared and frightened as I had just been told by him that I would not pass the vision test to renew my driver's license. I knew my vision was getting worse and needed surgery so opted for the laser surgery. Dr. Dexter explained every thing to be before hand. He did a great job on my eyes and now I don't have to wear glasses when driving.
in Cicero, NY |
Dr. Dexter was upfront with me about my options and likely results for my cataract surgery. I had little vision in one eye and he was very clear that I may not have the outcome he or I wanted. He operated on both my eyes over the course of a month and my vision is now 20/20 without glasses. I opted for the more expensive multi focal lens and he explained the potential downsides clearly and in detail. Luckily, I have not experienced any down side as yet. I have never waited more than 10 min.
