Joy Smith was seeing what looked like star bursts on car lights at night and it was becoming difficult to do any night-time driving. Her sister, who had already had cataract surgery, told her she needed to have her eyes checked for cataracts.
“We had just retired to Minnesota from Arizona and I didn’t have an ophthalmologist here,” explained Joy. “The Eye Center was in the same building as my internist, so I thought why not give them a try. I was immediately impressed with the staff and the doctor, and I knew that I had found the right facility for me and without any hesitation decided to have it done there.”
Joy’s pre-operative workup was very thorough – she was screened for any pre-existing conditions that might impact her surgery or recovery, and the doctor answered all of her questions.
She liked the fact that the Eye Center is devoted to surgery. “They do many of these surgeries every day,” she explained. “I wasn’t apprehensive at all…and it was a breeze.”
Joy chose an intraocular lens that corrected her distance vision only. “I still have to wear readers, but that’s nothing new,” she said. “The best part is that I can drive with confidence again.”
