What an enjoyable experience
In 2008 and approaching upon retiring from the U. Texas-Brownsville, and after a year or two of diminishing vision (glasses were not helping) a neighbor suggested I go see Drs. Moore and McMillin at the Valley Eye Surgery Center in Harlingen, TX. In short order I had cataract extraction with ocular lenses implanted. What was so wonderful was the doctors “balanced” my new lenses for near AND distance vision which in my case eliminated the need for corrective glasses – period! I was told during post-surgery follow-up that I would need a thorough check-up in about five years, which now is that time. I have been noticing some blurring and film-like distraction in my left eye resulting in frequent blinking which I wasn’t sure was right, so, again a neighbor recommended Key-Whitman. Yesterday I met with Dr. Hong and her staff and my-oh-my what an enjoyable experience. I learned that my lenses, vision in general, was good, and considering I am 72, that is very good news. I have always had a lot of apprehension and anxiety when it comes to anything dealing with my eyes…even to the point of not feeling well. Dr. Hong and her people were marvelously comforting and supportive as well as educational.
