Laurie T Shares Her Cataract Experience

Dr. Marc Michelson has been taking care of all my vision needs for many years and I'm glad it was him I chose when I first considered options for my nearsightedness. After carefully looking into the possibilities, I decided on intraocular lens implants. This means Dr. Michelson replaced my clear lens with an artificial lens with my prescription. The surgery is like cataract removal, only I didn't have cataracts. What I have now at age 63 is perfect vision; 20-20 reading and 20-15 far! Among my peers, I am the only one I know not dependent upon any glasses at any time. Having been nearsighted since age 6, so dependent that I had to feel around the bedside table for my glasses before I could get out of bed, this is still like a miracle to me. I have had my lenses for almost 10 years, and I couldn't be happier.
