Patient Testimonial

“I have been extremely near sighted my entire life and don’t remember ever not wearing very thick glasses or contact lenses. My vision was so poor that I could not see the alarm clock, 12 inches from my pillow, without putting my glasses on first. At age 52 I saw Dr. Stuart Marks for my annual exam and I remember telling him, “I need new glasses or contacts because I can’t see anything in dim or dark lighting”. Dr. Marks found that my vision was diminished due to cataracts, and recommended cataract surgery. Even though I have been a Registered Nurse for over 35 years, I was still a little apprehensive prior to the surgery but I need not to have been. At the pre-op visit, everything that was going to happen was thoroughly explained, the measurements for the implants were taken, and every question or concern I had was answered. I have to say having them removed has been one of the best things I have ever done! For the first time in my life I could see things without glasses or contacts. It may sound trivial but immediately after the surgery I looked up and saw the clock on the opposite wall and I could see it!!!! I was so excited and I could not wait for the 2 weeks to pass to have my other eye done. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Marks and his entire staff at Augusta Eye MD. Every person in the office, from the front desk staff to Dr. Marks (and every other staff member in between!), has treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism. Going to the Augusta Eye MD office is not like going to a doctor’s appointment, it’s like seeing old friends again.”
