Avies Gennaro

I started wearing glasses when I was a first grader. Around 18 I had my first set of contacts. As time went along it seemed to get worse to the point it felt like I had a film over both eyes. I went to my eye doctor and he referred me to Dr. Solomon.

When I met Dr. Solomon he was extremely professional, but I felt like I was his only patient at that time. He sat down in front of me and looked me in the eye and said I have good news and bad news. The bad news is you have cataracts the good news is I can correct them and we can do something [so] you probably won't even have to wear glasses, except to maybe read up close. And I walked out of there with such a good feeling knowing that something could be done after all these years.

Dr. Solomon talked to me talked to my husband,  took me step by step through exactly what he was going to do and what to expect. That made me feel very comfortable.

There was no pain during or after the surgery. My vision is very good I am not wearing glasses or contacts. The only thing I wear are glasses to read up close or do computer work with my job. I have a beautiful little granddaughter, grandsons also, that I'm able to sew for again.

Driving is much easier. I read road signs and I can read license plates on cars. Colors are very vivid, images are very sharp.
