As an optometrist who’s been in practice for 35 years, I’ve referred many of my patients to Dr. Shoemaker for cataract surgery. When it came time for my own vision correction, there was no question about who I would choose to perform my surgery.
The surgery itself doesn’t truly feel like a surgery. Everything was explained, step-by-step and I felt very confident in the team and the process. Each person I came in contact with was competent, thorough and efficient. I was there for a very short period of time and recovered quickly! After my second eye surgery, I could see 20/25 as I was leaving the building. Today, my vision is fantastic, both near and far. I can read a newspaper, my computer, my cell phone, and see sharp details in the distance when I go bird watching. Having worn contacts for over 45 years, I now enjoy clear vision without the need for contact lenses or glasses.
Dr. Shoemaker has always been my top choice for cataract surgery and I trust my eyes only to him. Surgeons have a skill, but they also must have a talent, and he happens to be very talented in cataract surgery. He’s done so many procedures and for so long; it’s incredibly mind-boggling! Not only is he a superb ophthalmologist, but he’s friendly, relates to his patients’ concerns, and is very unassuming. Even though he’s an outstanding surgeon, he’s truly in this field to help his patients and that’s what makes him a good doctor. I’d recommend him to anyone who’s interested in correcting their vision permanently. I couldn’t be more pleased.
