    How was your appointment with Dr. Lewis?

    Aug 25, 2017
    For over ten years I made an annual routine visit to Dr. Lewis. Each year we discussed the status of my cataracts. I didn't feel the need to have them repaired because, with glasses, my vision was more than adequate. This year I decided to get the cataracts taken care of. The reason was fix them now and enjoy the results or wait another ten years and enjoy the best vision in a nursing home. Dr. Lewis did the surgery I should never have waited. My vision is sharper, colors are beautiful. Wow!
