I have had cataracts removed from both eyes and the whole process from the first appointment to the last appointment couldn't have been better. Dr. Griffin and his staff have been courteous, very professional and friendly. They explain the procedures before they do anything so you are at ease knowing what to expect. Everyone was great. I didn't realize how bad my vision was until after the operation what a difference, it's wonderful to see the bright colors again and the clear vision.
