Read Some Words From Our Happy Cataract Patients

"At only 24 hours out from my laser cataract surgery, the Symfony® (Extended Depth of Focus) lens has improved my distance and intermediate vision.  I can’t wait to have my other eye done.  My surgery was quick and the nurses at the surgery center made me feel safe and at home.  All the staff members were conscientious.  Dr. Seltzer paid attention to me and was very careful and diligent.  I came here because Dr. Seltzer was highly recommended by another doctor."

- Barbara F.

“After buying prescription glasses every six months because the vision in my left eye was so bad, I came in to see Dr. Seltzer. My family and friends had greatly praised him.

I had laser cataract surgery and opted for the Symfony multifocal lens.  When I came out of surgery, I was reading the newspaper the same day.  I don’t need glasses to read the paper or drive.  It’s amazing!

The staff at Carolinas Centers for Sight were all excellent and Dr. Seltzer is simply the best.  I like him because he is very professional and gives an air of confidence. When you shake his hand, you know he knows what he is doing.”

- Paul C.

“Before my laser cataract surgery with Dr. Seltzer, I had to get my glasses to see the clock when I woke up.  In less than 24 hours after cataract surgery, I could see the television in the next room WITHOUT blurriness.  I couldn’t get over how bright things were.  I had no thought that I would be able to see that quickly. When I came in for my follow-up visit, I asked if I could get my second eye done immediately!

This surgery was the best thing in the world and I would do it again in a heartbeat.  It’s amazing! I tell everybody to make an appointment, go and get cataract surgery done.  Don’t even think about it, just get it done.  I never dreamt it would be this great!  I had terrible astigmatism and it is now fixed.”

- Deborah K.

“I love my eyes!  Before having laser cataract surgery and getting the Symfony ® Extended Depth of Focus lens implants, I used to wear glasses to watch television and to drive. I had multiple pairs of glasses with multiple strengths.  Also, I am a mortgage banker and couldn’t see to work on my computer at the office. Now, I can see everything!  Colors are brighter, I can read tiny print and perform my job at work.  My vision was 20/20 at my last visit and I am thrilled. In fact, I gave my glasses away. Carolinas Centers for Sight, P.C. is the most well-oiled machine I have ever seen. Everybody has a job to do to get everything perfect so you will have a perfect surgery.  Everything was so synchronized.  Dr. Seltzer is focused on the job at hand and made sure everything went smoothly.”

- Linda H.

“Before my laser, my vision was blurry with little white spots and I couldn’t see the time on the television.  When I was driving during the daytime, everything would just blur on me.  The laser helped me a lot because now I don’t have to get right up to the television to read things and I don’t see the floating white spots. Dr. Seltzer is fantastic.  I would recommend him to anyone with the highest standards because he is an excellent doctor.  I put him on a pedestal.”

- Sadie M.

“Carolinas Centers for Sight is the best place to come for cataract surgery.  We live in Loris and we come here and would again. Dr. Greene has a wonderful bedside manner—the best I have ever experienced.  He is awesome and always smiling.  I am absolutely thrilled at the results.  I went from being blind almost and using a magnifier.  Now I can see whatever I want to see.”

- Victoria G.

“I couldn’t do my job. My vision was so bad I couldn’t lay something down and then find it.  I couldn’t watch television even on a 50” screen. Now that I have had cataract surgery, my vision is wonderful. I had an eye exam this morning and I saw the big E and cried.  I have never been able to see the chart itself, much less the big E. I can see the pattern in the carpet.  It is remarkable what I can see now. Dr. Vasuki is so kind. I would tell everyone that they need to come to Carolinas Centers for Sight and see Dr. Vasuki for their cataract surgery. There is nothing to be afraid of."

- Larinda G.

“I have had laser cataract surgery on both of my eyes and am a happy camper because at 75 years old, I don’t need glasses to see in the distance. Dr. Seltzer is my hero because he gave me my freedom. He is an amazing guy. It was a wonderful experience. You don’t have to wait long for an appointment. Everyone knows what they are doing and they were courteous. I’d send anybody here.  It is the place to go for cataract surgery.”

- Jim C.

“I had the ORA procedure with my cataract surgery and now I am 100% better. I used to hate driving at night, but I don’t mind now because I can see. I can read again and get on the computer.  These are things I could not do before cataract surgery because my vision was so blurred. I like Dr. Greene because he is very good. My husband had his cataract surgery with Dr. Greene also. I would tell my friends and family to go ahead and make your appointment and have it done.”

- Gloria S.

“I was legally blind before my cataract surgery and totally night blind.  After dark, tail lights and traffic lights ran together. Shopping was difficult because the overhead fluorescent lights absolutely blinded me.  Most of the time, I just stayed home for fear of falling because my vision was so bad.  I was very impressed with Dr. Vasuki because he knew what he was talking about and there was actually hope that I would be able to see again.  On the day of my surgery, Dr. Vasuki took the time to talk to me. The staff members and technicians at the clinic were all excellent, efficient and seemed to know what they were doing.  My vision is awesome today:  I can knit, sew, drive at night and find anything in my house.”

- Angel W.
When we’re talking eyes, Dr. Seltzer is probably one of the best surgeons on the planet!  My advice to anyone considering cataract surgery is get it done at Carolinas Centers for Sight.  They have testing machines you have never seen before.  They know everything about your eyes.  The operation takes 20 to 30 minutes and you don’t feel any pain before or after the surgery.  You can see immediately.  The surgery center is run better than any hospital I’ve ever been to.   For all of you who need to wear glasses or contacts, go to the bank or borrow the money and get your cataract surgery done.  You will never regret it and your life will be better again.  You will still have to wash clothes, wash the dishes and cut the grass but you will be able to see all those things crystal clear.
