I love my new eyes after cataract surgery!!! Why? I can see!!! I have amazing vision, the best sight I’ve EVER had!!! I had worn glasses since the 3rd grade. Then came contact lenses, then radial keratotomy and then, once again: glasses. Until now, after just a few minutes of surgery without an IV or needing eyedrops. Thank you, Dr. Ellman!!!”
Impressive dedication to their patients, knowledgeable and caring physicians and staff, and a world class facility. I visited Southwest Eye Institute to learn more about corrective eye surgery options. Needless to say, Dr. De La Torre and his staff conducted a professional, detailed evaluation and screening, and walked me through the different corrective options. I have to say, I am completely happy and satisfied with the whole process. You can’t trust your eyes to just anyone. I wholeheartedly recommend you visit the Southwest Eye Institute, these people are professional healers.
