.I was told I needed cataract surgery on both eyes. First surgery done on eye I see distance with. Since surgery I’ve lost all ability to see distance and was told I would now have to wear glasses. I immediately left his practice and scheduled an appt with another Dr.. This Dr. gave me four options to correct problem. He also told me the cataract in left eye won’t need surgery for years. I believe I likely didn’t first surgery at all. Get a second opinion before letting Dr Kanasa do anything.

Have been going to Dr. Kansas for years. He performed LASIK eye surgery on me many years ago and I had a great result. Then I had cataract surgery a few years ago - again great result.

In 1986, my vision was so poor I had no focus point without very thick eyeglasses. Dr. Kansas operated on my eyes (RKs) and after the surgery I was able to go back to college and earn a BS in accounting. Changed my world. In 2016, I developed a cataract in my right eye and Peter Kansas operated on me successfully again. Also, Peter has a great caring way about him. He's quiet, but based on my experience he knows hat he is doing and calm & quiet is o.k. w/me.
