Patient Reviews (1)
in Largo fl. |
I had good eyesight.... 20/40 I was then told I needed cataract surgery. (I had no problems) This Dr's surgery person said I should have cataract surgery anyway as I will need it when I get older. --After surgery I kept calling in telling them about my pain and sight- they said this is normal--they said I was legally blind when I went in? I finally got to see this surgeon about 5 weeks after surgery and was told none of this would have happened if I had gotten the DELUXE package- I can't see now
