I had cataract surgery on both eyes and my vision is now perfect. The right eye was legally blind and the left eye was about 20/80. Dr. Palmer is a skilled surgeon not a social worker or victim's advocate... If you need either of those you probably need more than an opthamologist...I could not be...more
