Summary: Cataract and astigmatism surgery
May 2nd, 2015
I know I have cataracts and astigmatism long time ago, the eye doctor told me that I need to do the surgery, but I was so afraid of surgery, I keep changing the eye doctor and doing exercise everyday, hope that healthy body will correct the bad vision. Actually my vision got worse. Thanks to doctor Portis, he is so kind, so friendly, he never push me to do the surgery, his confidence and excellent skill for surgery made me reconsider my bad vision need to correct. The surgery is not as terrible as I thought, I was awake during the whole procedure, I didn't feel any pain or uncomfortable, and it is very fast, finally I got the 20/20 new eyes. I am so grateful to doctor Portis and the staff there, now I can enjoy the beautiful scenery everywhere, how wonderful it is!

Summary: Excellent Cataract treatment!
January 8th, 2015
When I went to Dr. Portis, I was having serious problems with my vision due to cataracts. He kindly and simply explained my situation and various options.

I'd hoped for a multi-focus lense and, luckily, my eyes were compatible with this option. The prep and surgery were both easier than I'd expected, and the outcome--even only days after the operation--was excellent. The world is much sharper and brighter for me. This procedure has truly changed my life.

Thank you Dr. Portis. It's the best Christmas gift I could have received.

Sincerely,

Kyoko Neff
