Dr. Ham performed surgery to remove cataracts in both eyes. He was able to measure the degree of astigmatism and put in corrective lenses as well as do corrective measures in both eyes. After wearing glasses since age 12, I can now see clearly within two days of my second surgery without glasses....more
