in Charlotte NC |
Dr. Ravi H. Patel of Horizon Eye Care, Waverly, Charlotte, NC provided excellent treatment and care for my cataract surgery in May 2017. He did careful examination and testing before surgery to be sure I was a good candidate for the Symphony Lens, which I chose. Dr Patel and his staff are knowledgeable, talented, and very caring. I had complete confidence in Dr Patel who is an exceptional surgeon. Results were everything I had hoped for. I can now see clearly without glasses plus rich color.
