Wish I could give 100 stars. Dr. Starr performed laser cataract surgery on two of my eyes. I read a book for the first time without glasses since I was 25. I don't need glasses not for near or for distance and my work is in graphics and photography. I have no problem driving at night either. I feel much safer and confident with my new implants. I am glad she gave me all the possible options and explained them with both videos and in person. I was very comfortable with my final decision and the results were great. Very dedicated, available and up to date, both Dr. Starr and her staff.
