My Horrible Cataracts Surgery Experience!

My name is Barry Cohen and I had my cataracts surgery on both eyes performed at Saint Lucie Eye Associates. I am sorry to say that for me it was a horrible experience! My original doctor there and the doctor that did my cataracts surgery on both eyes was Dr Derek Ohlstein. Since I make my living online I paid many thousands of dollars extra on top of the regular surgery cost to have multi-focal lenses implanted into my eyes because I was assured by Dr Ohlstein that with these lenses I would be able to see well at both distances for driving while also being able to read normal small type fonts both online and in reading materials such as in books, magazines and on labels. All Without Glasses! This is the bottom line! During the surgery the FEMTO laser that they used to cut loose my eyes lenses, misfired or was not set properly as it left my right eye with a permanent blur spot in my field of vision. Also both implant lenses were the wrong prescription because I now have to wear glasses all of the time to be able to read normal small print both online, while reading books, magazines and on labels. I can see distances ok but its even better with the glasses on. Dr Channon the senior doctor took over and tried what I feel was his absolute best to improve my vision with stents and a YAG laser surgery. Honestly, I wish that it was Dr Channon that did my cataracts surgery in the first place and I truly appreciate Dr Channon's attempts to help better my vision but it simply did not help. This is when the practice gave me a pair of glasses and told me that this is the best they could do. They also offered me $1,600.00 back that equaled the cost of the screwed up FEMTO laser treatment for one eye! (My Right Eye) However they said that if I accepted the money I would have to sign Hold Harmless agreements and a Disparagement release so I could not litigate Saint Lucie Eye Associates or tell this story! Needless to say I refused the money! I am now left with poor vision that impairs my ability to work online and often gives me headaches because its still a strain to read even with the glasses on. No amount of money can buy back my now screwed up vision and how my ongoing poor vision makes me feel every single day! These are the reasons I am not happy with my experience with Saint Lucie Eye Associates. My name is Barry Cohen and I had my cataracts surgery on both eyes performed at Saint Lucie Eye Associates.
