This content was provided by Dr. Hornfeld "As an ophthalmologist practicing for over 20 years, I fully understand the importance of treating each patient with the utmost attention to detail, as each case is unique. When it comes to cataract surgery, my philosophy goes beyond the customized plan to attain patient satisfaction. Our aim in the past used to be to make the experience painless.
