Patient Reviews

Aug 08, 2022

I just had my left eye done on Thursday morning, August 4. I opted for laser assisted cataract surgery. That same evening, I was amazed at the clarity of the TV screen. I didn’t need eyeglasses for my right eye as the left can see clearly. The entire surgery experience went well, procedure clearly explained, surgery staff very nice and helpful. Thank you Dr. Ou and your entire staff both in office and surgery center!!
