Now, having come full circle with retina surgery, I developed cataracts, as a result of the surgery. Returning to Dr. Witherill, he removed my cataracts, and inserted a lens in each eye, eliminating my nearsightedness & the need to wear glasses to see at a distance! Having worn glasses for 55 of my 59 years, I can honestly say Dr. Witherill is a MIRACLE WORKER!! Not only did he save my vision, it is now better than ever! You are in the very best hands if you see this wonderful doctor!!
