Graciella McGillicuddy
Patient of Dr. Shoemaker

My friends told me, “Graci, Do it! It’s the easiest thing in the world!” Now, I see what they meant!

For a long time now, I needed my glasses from the time I got up in the morning. What I didn’t know was that I was developing cataracts. I just kept thinking, ‘If I get stronger glasses, I’ll be OK,’ but my vision continued to worsen. Once I realized that my eyes were getting worse because of the cataracts I was petrified at the thought of having surgery on my eyes. As bad as they were, I could still see with my trifocals. However, as I complained about my eyesight, lots of my friends who had cataract surgery with Dr. Shoemaker told me, “Graci, Do it! It’s the easiest thing in the world!” Now, I see what they meant!

Once I made the appointment, what I appreciated most was that the procedure was thoroughly explained to me, step by step. I felt informed and knowing what to expect put me at ease. Dr. Shoemaker’s entire staff did an absolutely wonderful job every step of the way. It may have been their 3,000th surgery, but it was my first surgery. In that regard, the professionalism of the staff and the culture of the practice was simply marvelous. As anxious as I was before the procedure, during my surgery I felt very safe and cared for at all times.

The day after my surgery I went out to lunch and I looked at the menu and could read it without my glasses, I squealed with excitement, “Oh my God! I can read it!” Everyone in the restaurant heard me. Today my vision is 20/25 without glasses. I feel eternally grateful for my new eyesight!! The world is brighter shinier & clearer!!! The best part, however, is being able to see the seams & the logo on the tennis ball. I haven’t seen the writing on a tennis ball in ages. Now I can see the spin of the ball, which helps to identify the best way to hit it. It seems like a small thing, but it has been one of the most exciting changes that have come from my cataract surgery. Usually for such dramatic change to occur you expect pain, there was zero pain, not even a smidgen of discomfort. I couldn’t be happier!!!
