Lee Nordrum

“Dr. Thom’s skill as a cataract surgeon is extraordinary. I now have 20/20 distant vision and I can read everything but the smallest print without glasses. Everything is brighter and colors are richer. The images on my computer and television screens are sharp and the colors are brilliant. Dr. Thom and his surgical team were outstanding. The process was painless and the results magnificent.”

“I was apprehensive of the surgery, but after having one eye done, I was completely comfortable going back a week later to have the other eye done! Thank you for making me feel comfortable!”

Linda Sailer

“It seemed so new, expensive, and unknown. After listening to Dr. Thom’s staff, giving clarity to the choices, I was confident my cataract surgery would include the newly developed Symphony Lens. It felt like a sound investment in my eyes and a great return. Surgery for each eye was flawless and the results were no less than WOW!!! It’s been over a month since my last surgery and still get excited when I “don’t” have to find any cheater glasses. My vision is no lens than Fantastic. My husband will be encouraged to so the same. I would highly recommend to anyone having cataract surgery to invest in yourself and do the Symphony Lens. Hopefully, some day in the future medicare will consider this as an investment as well.”

Larry Vigen

“Dr. Thom recently performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I couldn’t be more pleased with the treatment I received from him, the staff at his office, the staff at the Center for Special Surgery, and the outcome. I am now seeing clearly, without glasses, for the first time since I was 13. From the day I arrived at Dr. Thom’s office, I’ve been treated with the utmost kindness, consideration, and professionalism. Dr. Thom placed a special lens in my left eye to correct for astigmatism, and a regular lens in my right eye. He was extremely vigilant with his post-surgical examinations. Using the eye-drops was easy, thanks to the clear charts he and his staff provided. Dr. Thom and his associates made the process of surgery a straight-forward, simple, and even positive experience. I remarked to him jokingly that I’m sorry I don’t have a third eye he can operate on!”

Donald Paul

“Dr. Thom, just a short note to let you know how pleased I am with the outcome of the Cataract Surgery performed by you. I can’t believe all the small things I see that I haven’t noticed before and how clear and crisp everything looks. I can now read the captions on T.V. they were so fuzzy before, and the computer use is so much better. I only hope that more people have and take the opportunity to have cataract surgery. Thank you and your office once again for giving me the way to view the world again in a clearer way.”

Dolores McClernon

“It seems miracles never cease. I had Cataract Surgery on both eyes. I’ve been near sighted all of my life. Seeing at a long distance was not real good even with glasses.
So to find after surgery that I had 20/20 vision was really a miracle to me. My long distance was excellent and I need correction for reading and close vision. It’s a complete change for me as I’ve had glasses since 1st grade for near sightedness. I can see at night when I do not have my glasses on. I can see stars out the window! Surgery is not that bad either. Local anesthetic and eye drops to stop infection and aid healing.”

Gerry Floden

“Two years ago I was diagnosed by Dr. Thom that I would need Cataract Surgery as it was progressing. I was having trouble seeing in low light conditions and there were “Rainbows” around night lights and the moon. I elected to go with the Crystalens because of the possibility of being able to focus up close without glasses. The operation was a huge success as now after one month I have 20/20 vision in both eyes and can easily read news papers and my PDA without glasses! To me it was well worth the extra money!”

Sara Smith

“From the moment I was informed it was time for Cataract Surgery (I had been checking in every 6 months with Dr. Thom) everything fell into place. Dr. Thom’s assistant Sherri walked me through the process of administrating the eye drop after surgery. It was quite simple with the chart they gave me. The morning of the surgery I was greeted by a smiling nurse who administered eye drops (pre-surgery) about every 15 minutes until I was ready for surgery. (The purpose for the drops will be explained). I was in good hands and was treated with courtesy, respect, concern and smiles for the whole operating staff. A full explanation of the surgery was given which took about ½ hour. There was no pain and I was wheeled out to the recovery area where I was served coffee and toast. I can honestly say my experience with the staff in Dr. Thom’s office and in the operating room was a personally gratifying experience. No one should have doubt about choosing Dr. Thom and the Eye and Laser Clinic for any eye condition.”
