I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Astorino, and I just wish there was a 6th star with which to rate. He was severely handicapped going into my surgery as I had a botched radial keratotomy with many scars on the surface of my cornea performed 30 years ago. He asked in the preoperative interviews which vision was most important to me, distance or reading. I answered "distance" and was of the opinion that I would need reading glasses at times, which was fine with me. Due to the scarring, and my astigmatism as well, he wanted to perform the surgery using the laser, and a special lens, of which neither was covered by Medicare or my private secondary insurance. But I opted to pay out of pocket and it was well worth the money. Best investment I have ever made I might add! I had my 1 1/2 month post-op appointment last Thursday, and all three doctors (Ho, Cahoon, and Astorino) were amazed to find that not only is my distance vision 20/15, but my near vision is 20/15 as well and the astigmatism is GONE! Astorino and his associates are the most thorough team we (wife and I) have ever experienced. Yes, sometimes the waiting time might be more than you like, but it is only because they are giving someone else the thorough care and attention that they will be giving you. No matter how far they are behind, I have never felt rushed of that the wanted to short shrift me to get to the next patient. Wife ran in to that with her previous opthamologist. Get seen 45 minutes past your appointment time and given the bum's rush after he spends 5 minutes with you with a forced smile (think used car salesman) on his face. Bottom line: I can't recommend Dr. Astorino and his associates highly enough. THEY PERFORMED A MIRACLE in my humble opinion.
