Throughout my youth, and young adulthood, my sense of vision was very good. After many years that sense began to change. First, there was the need for reading glasses. Second, those reading glasses soon changed to a need for bifocal lenses, but still no need to wear them all of the time. After several years, however, there were to be more changes. Colors became dimmer, light became darker, even with bifocal lenses objects became less clear, and then the worst effect was the coming of the fog – making it almost impossible to see clearly. It was with extreme trepidation that I sought help with these issues. Fortunately, I was able to obtain an appointment with Dr. Gregory Kent of The Eye Associates.
Many times in my life my thought process as relates to my health status have lead me to believe events were the most severe and that each had a dire prognosis. When Dr. Kent told me that I had cataracts, and there was the ability to fix them, I was almost elated. What made the diagnosis most notable was in the manner in which Dr. Kent delivered the news, with calmness, compassion, clarity, and confidence.
It was not by chance that I had sought an appointment with Dr. Kent as I had previously worked directly with him almost two decades earlier, where I had the ability to see those same qualities demonstrated for scores of others experiencing the same conditions in their lives.
Still, while I had the opportunity to take part in the rendering of such care, it was quite different when I was the intended recipient of that care. Dr. Gregory Kent, and all of the staff members of The Eye Associates, have consistently demonstrated my needs were identified and effectively met, in most instances exceeding my high expectations. After all, they are my eyes and my vision.
While I may never know about the quality and outcomes relating to the use of other types of lens implants, I am very aware of those features as they relate to the use of the Tecnis Symfony® lenses. Now that I have both replacement lenses implanted, I do not need glasses to read, colors are brighter and more vivid, the tired eye feelings are gone, there is no more fog, and my life quality has improved. One might ask if the opportunity to correct vision issues is worth two periods of fifteen to twenty minutes of their time. As for me, the answer is definitely and emphatically yes.
