Dr. Saltzmann performed cataract surgery on both eyes, correcting astigmatism in one. My vision is now terrific and the pain I used to get from progressive lens and sunglasses is gone. He was straight forward and informative through the entire process.

Doctor Saltzmann is an awesome doctor. He has treated me and my wife with the utmost respect. Would and will refer him to family and friends. He never made me feel like a question was to big or to small to answer. And always answered them in a way that we both understood.
