John sought out Dr. Del Negro to improve his deteriorating vision. For almost 50 years he had relied upon glasses and contacts to see the world more clearly. Now, he says, “I have a renewed outlook on life thanks to my improved vision.”
 
He shares his positive experience:
 
“The entire journey from the first phone call requesting an appointment to the cataract operation was quite easy. The patient is moved through the process in an organized, precise, and comfortable manner. Dr. Del Negro was very considerate in addressing my needs for improved vision. He explained the various Lens options available and was quite patient with my many questions. I felt confident that I would experience favorable results. My new vision is like a miracle. The blurriness caused by the cataracts is gone. Objects at a considerable distance appear sharp and clear. Also, I do not need to carry reading glasses to read a dinner menu or a label at the supermarket. For me, this is a major quality of life improvement.
 
I would recommend Dr. Del Negro without hesitation. I knew I was in good hands (forget about Allstate).”

“Everyone was pleasant and friendly, from the people at the front desk to the assistant who measured my eyes, etc. And, of course, Dr. Del Negro. I was definitely pleased with the results of the exam, but the entire process was easy and painless. Thank you.”

My mom, who passed away a few days shy of 90, was a seamstress and an artist and entrusted her eyes to Dr. Del Negro decades ago. Her eyesight was everything to her. I followed in her footsteps as did other family members, and could not be more pleased by all the caring doctors and staff. Thanks for being there!

Anita’s eyes were progressively getting worse. She explained, “I need a great amount of light shining on my book or my computer to see properly.” After having laser cataract surgery, she reports that her vision is “100% improved. In fact, I see more clearly than I did years ago. It is amazing.” According to Anita, the best perk following surgery is, “I am not a ‘slave’ to my glasses any longer. I only need them for close-up work or reading. I can see farther more clearly and more sharply than before.”

During her cataract evaluation, Dr. Del Negro answered all of her questions “in a kind and caring manner – even when I asked the same question more than once.” She shares some words of wisdom after having been through the entire process: “If Dr. Del Negro is your surgeon, you have nothing to fear. He takes excellent care of you in his office and in the OR. He really cares about his patients. He is very competent and the procedure is done very quickly. Recovery is also quick.”

Overall, Anita had a very positive experience and sums it up with these encouraging words to anyone considering cataract surgery in the future: “From my first office visit through my second cataract removal and my post-surgery exam, everyone involved treated me very kindly. When you are in Dr. Del Negro’s hands or the hands of his staff, you are treated like a fond family member. The wonderful restored vision you end up with is icing on the cake.”

At the recommendation of two friends Sue sought out Dr. Del Negro after she began experiencing blurry vision and nighttime glare. She opted for cataract surgery with a multifocal lens when Dr. Del Negro presented her with all her options during her evaluation. Before the procedure, she had been wearing glasses for 26 years and her vision was blurry from cataracts. She decided to undergo surgery so she would be able to read and work on the computer, and also to improve her night vision.
 
After the procedure, she said “My vision is greatly improved- I haven’t worn glasses since, and I have no problem driving at night. There was a noticeable improvement immediately, and it increased in the following weeks. Now, my eyes don’t get tired when I’m working, I can go out at night, and I’m not constantly looking for my glasses! Before the surgeries, I felt confident that they would be successful because of the care that was taken – once the procedure was explained by Dr. Del Negro and his staff, I wasn’t nervous at all. They provided detailed explanations, and the nurses at the surgery center assured me that Dr. Del Negro was ‘good, fast, and the best-‘ I agree, and already referred two people for cataract procedures. The surgery was quick and very comfortable – I felt absolutely nothing! Dr. Shah was excellent too, especially when I developed a swollen gland that became a cyst. My new vision is worth every penny of the money I spent on multifocal lenses.”

“I’m very, very pleased! I can’t believe the difference in what I can now see without glasses. I don’t even need them to read. I healed very quickly with no discomfort. When I go to sew or mend. I can get the thread right through the needle. In the past I had to work at it. Driving at night is much better-the red and green lights don’t look like fireworks anymore, they look like round circles again. I am now doing as much driving as I did when I was working.”
