Cataract Diagnosis and Treatment
Procedure: Cataract Surgery with Symfony® Lens Implant
MY VISION IMPROVED IMMEDIATELY! IT TRULY WAS LIFE CHANGING. NOW THINGS ARE LIGHT AND BRIGHT AGAIN. SEEING IS BELIEVING!
My husband started complaining about the mess I was leaving everywhere, but I couldn't see it. I was also dropping things all the time. My depth perception seemed off. I knew I had cataracts, but now it was time to do something about them. I started researching on the “Talk of the Villages” website and read really good things about Dr. Holman and made an appointment.
Dr. Holman was very knowledgeable and thorough. He explained the different lens options, including the Symfony® lens. I did my own research and decided to have the procedure. Dr. Holman and the staff at Lake Eye are amazing. It was the most organized surgery that I've ever had – and I've had my share.
Procedure: Cataract Surgery, Lens Implants
THE SURGERY WAS QUICK AND EASY AND I COULD SEE IMMEDIATELY!
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
IT TOTALLY CHANGED HOW I FELT ABOUT MY APPEARANCE.
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!
