Cataract Surgery-Taking the Fear Out

I am still working full time in Manhattan and noticed my vision was decreasing rapidly. I live in New Jersey and began asking around and doing research as to the best cataract surgeons. The same name kept coming up, Dr. Joel Confino.  I went to see Dr. Confino in his Westfield office for a consultation and learned that I had cataracts.  Dr. Confino and his staff explained that given the underlying good health of my eyes, I qualified for a multifocal lens implant that would allow me to see both distance and read without glasses. I could hardly believe what I was hearing. I have worn glasses for over 60 years and I knew nothing else. They had become part of me.
Dr. Joel Confino, M.D.

I was a little scared, as we are dealing with my eyes. The entire staff put me at ease and treated me like one of their family. Once I had my first eye done, I couldn’t believe the difference in the quality of my vision. Everything was so clear, crisp, colorful and vibrant. I couldn’t wait to have my second eye done two weeks later.

Now I have completed both of my surgeries and I am thrilled. It has helped me excel at my job; daily tasks are much easier without having to look for glasses or try to find my reading glasses. The process from the first examination through both treatments was PAINLESS! I mean it…No Pain.  Now that I am done, I telling all my friends that are still scared to go get checked, GO, it’s nothing.

Thank you to The Eye Care & Surgery Center, Dr. Confino and his team for making me feel young again.
