Teri M told us about her cataract surgery experience…
“I initially came to ECOT for a routine eye exam to update my glasses. I had a few complaints like glare and halo when I drove at night and I also felt like I saw a fog in my vision. I thought my glasses were just old since I hadn’t had an eye exam in many years. Upon my exam, it was determined that I had cataracts and needed surgery. It wasn’t something I was prepared to hear that day, especially since I thought I was having just a regular exam. After speaking with the surgery counselor and again with Dr. Van, I felt confident in ECOT care and had my first cataract surgery last June. WOW is all I could say. I was seeing things that I hadn’t seen so bold and vibrant since I was a kid. I absolutely could not wait for the second surgery which was 2 weeks later. Once both eyes had been operated on, I now only need glasses to read. I started driving at night again. I am so happy now that I was diagnosed with cataracts on that visit because you don’t realize how bad your vision is or was until after surgery and my vision is excellent!
