Procedure: Cataract Surgery, Lens Implants


I have worn glasses since I was three years old – thick, heavy, ugly glasses that cost a fortune and left indentations and sores on my nose. When I got cataracts, they only made my vision worse. When Dr. Holman suggested surgery I was afraid to get my hopes up – I couldn’t see well even before my cataracts, so how much improvement could I expect? But Dr. Holman explained everything to me in detail, and my anxiety turned into excitement.

The surgery and recovery were quick and easy and I could see immediately! The lenses Dr. Holman placed in my eyes have changed how I see the world – colors are brighter, lines are crisp and I can finally see details. The improvement it has made to my life is beyond imagination.

Procedure: Cataract Surgery on Both Eyes


I got to a point where I could no longer correct my vision with a new eyeglasses prescription. That's when my general eye doctor, Dr. Vocci, told me it was time for cataract surgery. I was very nervous.

What I loved about Dr. Holman is that he took so much time explaining everything to me and he really calmed my fears. I had my eyes done two weeks apart. In 10 minutes [the first eye] was done and I thought, 'Wow that was easy.'

For the second eye I was fascinated with the surgery and watched the whole thing and asked questions. I wasn't nervous at all. And after the procedures I could see right away.

It was amazing. It totally changed how I felt about my appearance, I had the freedom not to rely on glasses, and I could drive at night again. Now I don't need glasses at all ... not even readers! The recovery was nothing; I used special drops in my eyes for a few weeks and that was it. It was definitely worth it. I would definitely recommend Lake Eye and have done so to several people already!
