As I approach the six month anniversary of my cataract surgery, the memory remains as clear as my vision. Because I had been a successful 20 year monovision contact lense wearer, I was hesitant to submit to a procedure I didn't think I needed. Dr. Medford assured, not promised, that he would replicate my vision as close as possible. Happily, by treating the astigmatism in my reading eye with the Toric monofocal lense and both eyes using laser technology, he more than fulfilled both our expectations. To this day I am still amazed at waking up to crystal clear vision that allows me to see distance clearly as well as read the smallest print. No glasses for me! I can never thank Dr. Medford, his staff, especially Kelli, and everyone at the Ridgedale Surgery Center for their knowledge, expertise, and kindness in guiding me through this process. It's something I'll never forget. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr. Medford's performing this procedure on anyone who needs it. The results have to be seen to be believed! I

Experience with cataract surgery

Dr. Medford is both caring and careful — two attributes that anyone wants in a surgeon, especially for delicate eye surgery. I'm very pleased with the results of my cataract surgery as well as the process of getting there. I was impressed with the detailed and easy-to-understand directions his staff provided, and undoubtedly that Dr. Medford created. It was simple to keep track of the eye drops I needed to use before and after surgery. His explanations are always thorough. never confusing.

Wonderful care

I had cataract surgery in both eyes, two weeks apart in June, 2017 and to date couldn’t be happier. The procedures went very well and I have perfect vision in one eye, and a little less than perfect in the other eye. My astigmatisms were treated with Toric monofocal intraocular lenses and the procedures were performed using advanced laser technology. Immediately after the surgeries I could see without my glasses for the first time in 55 years and had absolutely no pain or issues in both eyes. Dr. Medford and his staff are very professional and caring and the same can be said for the Ridgedale Surgery Center.

Dr. Medford and his staff are very professional. The experience I had when I had my cataracts remove was very smooth. Dr. Medford, his staff and the staff at the surgical center were very good. They treated me like a person, not just another number, and answered all my questions. As I tell my friends, this really was a non-event.
