Dr Koenig did not adequately explain all of the possible things that could happen with my cataract surgery. I was told that I would not need glasses for distance. I do need them for distance. I think the technician who took eye measurements probably did not get that right. Also I think the doctor did not do accurate calculations for the lenses. They were not careful with these steps. Then he told me the lenses can't be replaced because it is too risky. I had one shot and the doctor blew it.
