Felt pressured to have surgery and to buy the upgrade lens. Was promised that I would not have to wear glasses to read. Not true. I am unable to read labels and some menus without help. Night driving is almost impossible. When I complained about was told to just give it time. It's been over a year and its no better. Recently I was talking to a friend about my experience when a lady came up to me to say she had overheard what I had said. She said that she used to work for Dr Yeh and quit for the very reasons I had said. She didn't like trying to get patients to buy unnecessary services.
