The staff was friendly and professional. However, the front desk staff could have been a little more friendly. Dr. Hamaker, as usual, was very nice and took the time to explain each procedure and the results. He did my cataract surgery several years ago and everything went great.

While he was doing cataract surgery on me the membrane in my eye ruptured and lens fragments fell into the back of my eye requiring more surgery. I also found out he put the wrong lens in the wrong eye. I would not recommend Dr. Hamaker, he does not pay very close attention. I am still paying for his mistakes physically and financially.

Had my eyes dilated and checked for any problems. None found and vision was 20/20! Happy with my glaucoma reading of 14. The Latanaprost drops are an eyesaver.
