THANK YOU WOOLFSON!!!!! I was overly impressed with the entire process of my LASIK surgery at Woolfson Eye Institute. They communicated to me very clearly how the process works, and did a wonderful job answering all of my questions. Dr. Woolfson and the team is very professional and they really go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable. If you are reading this and considering visiting Woolfson Eye Institute, do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with them, you will be thankful you did :) Dr. Woolfson has done over 80,000 LASIK surgeries and is a true expert in his field. Even during the surgery Dr. Woolfson was talking through the process, what was happening, and what he was doing next, which was so comforting. The actual surgery was absolutely painless and very short. My only regret is not doing it sooner! Woolfson Eye Institute, I am forever grateful for your knowledge, expertise, and genuine care for your patients. I will be referring you to everyone!

Had cataract surgery...asked for monovision ..no one explained accommodation at my age which made my left eye is absolutely useless -can't see close-up or distance. Woolfson Doctor recommended contacts. So unhappy.. Can't drive at night. Have fallen twice. Right eye is wonderful, which is why I asked for monovision because I loved my lasik surgery. Not sure what my next step is...
Response from the owner - a year ago
We are very committed to fully answering patient questions about their medical condition and provide as much information as necessary about recommended corrective procedures. We are concerned any time we learn of patients experiencing side effects following their corrective procedures. In such cases, we always encourage our patients to return to our office so we can investigate and address their concerns. Following any surgical procedure, we want to be sure that our patients know to contact us if they experience anything out of the ordinary, or if they have questions. We are glad to share some general information regarding presbyopia, lens implants and monovision. To start with, presbyopia, or the loss of accommodation of the human eye, is an expected process that occurs due to natural aging. In this process, the lens in the eye loses the ability to change shape, typically beginning in the early 40s, thus affecting the ability to change focus from near objects to objects that are far away. Accommodation is totally absent after someone undergoes cataract surgery (unless a special lens is used). When someone is undergoing cataract surgery, several types of intraocular lens implants (IOLs) can be used—single power (called monofocal—not to be confused with monovision), multifocals or accommodating IOLs. Multifocal IOLs provide far and near vision; accommodating IOLs provide a small degree of something called pseudo-accommodation; and, a monofocal IOL can be used to correct either distance or near vision, but not both. When a patient has been successful with monovision via contact lenses, then monofocal IOLs with a monovision strategy often make sense. In monovision cataract surgery, one eye receives an IOL implant for near vision and the other eye gets a lens for distance. Typically, patients who have already adjusted to monovision with contacts do not have any trouble adjusting to IOL monovision. Nonetheless, as with most medical treatments, some side effects can be expected. One of the potential side effects of monovision is decreased ability to see at night. Another is loss of some depth perception. These are concerns we discuss with patients before offering monovision treatment. Occasionally, a patient will end up with a monovision correction that’s not identical to the correction they adapted to with contacts. When that happens, there are frequently solutions available to resolve the problem, and sometimes the solution can include another procedure. Prior to another procedure, it’s not unusual for a contact lens to be used for a repeat trial run to make sure that the next procedure has the highest likelihood for success.

Very professional staff. Dr.Woolfson is great and made you feel important. He took time to explain everything. The procedure was a success! No need to wear glasses for distance anymore!

I went here for a consultation. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable and made me feel like a valued customer. Even Dr. Woolfson came in to speak with me and answer my questions during my visit.

The reviews I've read lean mostly toward lasik surgery. My latest experience has been with the outstanding care of Dr James Hay who performed DSEK (Cornea Replacement surgery) on my right eye about year and a half ago) I can't imagine the skill required for such a delicate procedure, but Dr Hay has mastered it--In February (2015), Dr Hay will perform DSEK on my left eye--I trust him completely! Thank you, Dr Hay, for saving my sight! Clara Breazeale Childress, Roswell, GA.

Do you really need cataract removal? I had trouble fielding a softball. The optometrist said I had a cataract and no depth perception. OK, let's get it fixed. No problem with the surgery until later. My other eye has a cataract, but 20/15 vision. The "fixed" eye can no longer read a menu; an airplane in flight looks like two; a person on TV has three, or four eyes; signs are blurred as is everything else. Glasses to improve this have not worked. Reading is no longer enjoyable. And, I still cannot field a softball. What a colossus mistake. I now learn that my eyes are no longer synchronized. One reads higher (the fixed") one, and the other lower. Glasses help a little, but my original eyes worked better.
