I had cataract surgery in August 2016. Dr Lafayette was friendly, detailed, kind manner and spent time to answer all my questions. I was very nervous but he put me at ease. The surgery was on time and went very well. I would recommend him to anyone. Sue

Very prompt, and explains through the whole procedure. Very comfortable in his hands.. Both procedures went excellent, with no problems whatsoever. One can certainly tell this Dr. has a passion for the work, and skill that he has . I would highly recommend Dr. Lafayette to anyone else to say the least.
