Treatment has kept glaucoma from progressing. After cataract surgery, no longer require glasses expect for fine print and am very pleased with my vision now. I have confidence that Dr. Kaufman is a skillful practitioner and feel that he makes appropriate decisions on my behalf. I highly recommend him and his colleagues for vision care.
