On July 6 and 20, 2015 – I had laser cataract surgery, also correcting an astigmatism in the right eye, done by Dr. Shetty. He put the multifocal lens in each eye. Of course, Dr. Shetty is a spectacular surgeon, and the surgery experience was quite comfortable. Dr. Shapiro, the anesthesiologist, was great, and Southpoint Surgery Center was efficient and friendly. I just took the last drops for the second eye yesterday. I have had no problems – and guess what? I can see!! I didn’t realize how poor my vision was becoming but i can certainily tell a difference now. The multifocus lens is absolutely the way to go. I was wearing “drugstore cheaters” at 3.25 in order to read and prescription distance glasses for driving. Didn’t have much middle range vision, TV watching was very fuzzy. Now, I do not wear glasses at all and my near, middle and distance vision is all good. I took a two-week trip abroad, no glasswes to worry about (excpet sunglasses!) It is especially good for me not to wear glasses all the time as I was constantly getting little lesions on my nose from the plastic nose pieces. Thank you!!
Thank you for your expertise. I have been getting lots of compliments on my new look after getting Botox, fillers, and a chemical peel. Thanks again!
Dr. Khaja found my retinal detachment, repaired by droopy eyelids, and then did my cataract surgery. She took the time to explain everything to me in detail and made me feel very comfortable. She is the best!
“I had recently moved from Jacksonville area. I thought since I was several hours away now, I should find a new eye dr at my new location. After thinking about it, I realized that he was the one that I always wanted to take care of my eyes. I trusted him, and he always spends quality time with me, and I liked his personality. He always has a smile. the office staff is always pleasant and very knowledgeable. the 2 hour ride up to Jacksonville is worth it to me.”
From my initial “free” consultation to the day of my surgery, Dr. Chokshi and his staff went above and beyond the call of duty. I am extremely pleased with the results. During the LASIK procedure, Dr. Chokshi was very encouraging and kept me posted on the timing. I can’t say enough good things about this amazing group of charismatic people. Thank you for changing the way I look at things!
