"Wow! I had cataract surgery a week ago and am stunned with the improvement of my vision. Previously, I’ve had Lasik surgery and that was great, but nothing like this. It’s extraordinary. The staff at SureVision Eye Centers and Woodcrest Surgery Center went out of their way to make sure my surgery went off without a hitch. They are courteous, professional and efficient. I can’t say enough good things about them. As far as my vision goes, perhaps the best way for me to put it into words, is to describe the difference between a 1980’s TV and today’s Hi-Def TV. Only better! The world is full of color like I’ve not seen for 20 or 30 years. It seems to improve every day, and it’s only been 7 days! I’m really looking forward to have cataract surgery on my other eye soon."Bill
