I had cataract surgery with Dr. Litoff in November 2017. The morning after my first eye was done, I removed the patch and noticed how white my kitchen was, rather than the beige I had been seeing for so long. I kept doing side by side comparisons with the other eye that still had a cataract and would get emotional each time. It was like getting new eyes after 66 years!

Dr. Litoff performed the cataract surgery and I could not be happier with results! I was already seeing clearly the day after my cataract was removed. My only regret is that I didn’t have the surgery done sooner, it has made a world of difference in my life.
