This content was provided by Dr. Grostern "A lot of what we do is considered elective surgery, some of it is cosmetic surgery, and often though this is life-changing stuff. Humans are very visual creatures, and to give them better vision is actually tremendously satisfying. And patients are typically very appreciative of obtaining better vision through procedures or sometimes something as simple as new glasses. Deep down a lot of people are afraid of losing what they've got in their precious sense of sight. That's the main fear that I think every ophthalmologist encounters every day. Reassurance is important - explaining the process to people, explaining problems to people, explaining their eye diseases to them, and approaching it with a way that we can attack it - a way that we can tackle their eye problems and hopefully cure them for good."
