Patient Experiences

I can read the fine print in a phone book and see a half-mile down the road while driving.

Five years ago this month, you implanted corrective lenses to fix 14 diopters of near-sightedness in my eyes plus a good chunk of axis twist. I had worn heavy glasses since age 6. Your work has improved my daily life dramatically. I am now 55 years old and, since the surgery, I have never worn any sort of glasses—no reading glasses, or distance glasses, or driving glasses, nothing! I can read the fine print in a phone book and see a half-mile down the road while driving. I am able to jump horses over obstacles without glasses flying off my face, and I can read journal articles on glossy paper. You are the best.

And now - glasses no more! What a joy!

I have the highest praise for Dr. Rex Hamilton and the courteous and friendly staff for the meticulous care and attention to detail given to me for my cataract surgery and implementation of ReStor lens. And now – glasses no more! What a joy!

I was a happy guy before the surgery. Now I am in a realm of pure joy.

I have been blessed! My reading glasses are history! At age 65, I have worn reading glasses (2.75) for over 15 years. I suffered from presbyopia and the onset of cataracts. Dr. Hamilton, director of UCLA’s Laser Refractive Center, replaced my natural lens with artificial ones. The result – ASTOUNDING! I expected to use low-power reading glasses. The Crystalens has eliminated the need for glasses on any kind. I can even read the fine print on descriptions included with medication. Expectations were exceeded, big time! Also, no pain, no side effects from the surgery. Only restored normal vision. After the 20-minute surgery for each eye, I was wheeled into the recovery room , IV was removed, and I walked out without assistance. The entire surgical team and scheduling staff have my life-long respect and gratitude. I was a happy guy before the surgery. Now I am in a realm of pure joy. Thank you Dr. Hamilton and colleagues. You are amazing!
