I have seen Dr. Crane yearly the past 10 years as I am a diabetic. Dr. Crane is highly experienced and very thorough. Gentle and caring I am lucky to have found such a knowledgeable physician surgeon.

Dr. Crane, in addition to being a skillful surgeon, is a compassionate, caring person. He did a wonderful job on my cataract surgery. I could not be more pleased. And he followed up with personal phone calls to be sure I was getting along okay. And each one of his staff went out of her way to help me during the entire procedure. They are all a very caring team.

I had cataract surgery and couldn't be happier. The process was easy and painless. The results are absolutely amazing. Colors are so vivid. An added bonus was getting back peripheral vision. My eyesight is excellent now at distance and up close details. I got the restor lens and would recommend it to anyone.

My entire experience has been very positive. Everyone I've encountered here is very nice and seem to all be very good at there jobs. I am very happy with my results of having the multifocal eye surgery. To not have to grab my reader glasses every time I want to read something anymore is truly awesome. Thank you Dr. Crane and your crew for what you've done.

Couple of my friends spoke very highly of Dr. Crane and after seeing him for an evaluation, I was convinced I could trust him to do my eyes i.e. remove my mild cataract and replace them with multifocal lenses. He was extremely thorough in his explanation of the procedures and what I should expect from the surgery. Once the surgery was done, I continued to see Dr. Crane's kindness and attention to detail as well as professionalism second to none. What a pro - I could not be any happier.
in Princeville, HI |
I got the cataract surgery with Dr. Crane about 6 months ago and I couldn't be happier. I spent a little more to get the multifocal lens but it was well worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Crane.
in Lihue, HI |
Dr Crane is a very thorough, caring and efficient physician. His 30 plus years of knowledge and expertise surpasses any other. He even calls his patients at home to make sure they're doing okay after surgery. I have not heard of any other Dr going that extra mile.
in Koloa, HI |
After the cataract surgery my vision is 20/20! Thank you Dr. Crane you are amazing! I would not trust my vision with anyone else!
in Kalaheo, HI |
Terrible. Severely disappointing. Never got better only worse. Can't say anything good and would advise friends to find another doctor. Don't waste your time or risk your vision.
