Dr Scallon removed my cataracts with success from each eye. Friendly and well educated.
in Ames |
Dr. Scallon was the doctor I chose to perform LASIK on my two sons almost 20 years ago, and they have had marvelous, trouble free results. Dr. Scallon performed my cataract surgery 3 years ago, also with great results. I have recommended him to both family members and friends.

Louis J. Scallon, M.D., at the Wolfe Eye Clinic in Ames, Iowa, performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. The Wolfe Eye Clinic was very professional, and the team that assisted Doctor Scallon with my eye examinations and measurements was excellent. Doctor Scallon was highly recommended by friends. He explained the procedure very well. The surgery far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Doctor Scallon at the Wolfe Eye Clinic to anyone considering cataract surgery!

Great experience. Very good at easing my fears.
in Ames, IA |
Dr. Scallon seems very knowledgeable, is very kind, and seems genuinely concerned about his patients. He also explains things clearly, which is very important to someone like me, who is losing their sight and doesn't understand what's happening.
in Nevada, IA |
