Cataract removal and Lens Replacement

I had cataract eye surgery on both eyes done by Dr. Busack. The outcome was excellent, and I could not have asked for a more positive and professional experience! He's the best! Would never dream of seeing anyone else for any issue with my eyes.

Five Stars

I have been fortunate to have had Dr. James Busack as my opthamalogist for over 20 years. I have had cataract surgery performed by Dr Busack, and I did beautifully. I've also had several other eye procedures by Dr Busack, and I always did well. I am a Registered Nurse, so I have high expectations for physicians, and Dr Busack exceeds those expectations. He and his staff are always professional and friendly. Sara S
