  • I opted to have the RESTOR lens for my cataract surgery. WOW!! No more glasses. It is amazing. I can read, see my computer and cellphone, drive day or night, hunt, fish - everything.

  • My vision has been restored to as close to perfect as it can be and without having to be burdened with the hassle of wearing glasses.

  • My husband and I appreciated the kind service you provided for me during my recent cataract surgery. The old saying "no pain, no gain" is wrong. I had absolutely no pain and I gained so much.
