Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lichter "Helping patients to receive care that is in their best interest and to throughly understand their care options--the way I would want a member of my family to be cared for. For patients who are confused by the IOL options related to cataract surgery, whether they visit me for a second opinion or for consideration of surgery, my goal is to provide them with the best available information from studies to couple with my decades of experience in cataract surgery to help decide what is best for them."
