Dr.Lipsky is a top notch eye surgeon.You do not have any problems after surgery.I have had freinds that went to other surgeon to have their cataracts removed and had major issues afterward,they had their cataracts removed. I have the highest respect for this awesome doctor. He is top notch. If,i ever have to have any type of eye surgery due to an injury,it would differently be Dr.Lipsky.
I was referred to him because of cataracts. I previously had RK and lasik. I was able to see distance in both eyes, but had to wear glasses for close up. After surgery in my left eye, I could no longer see distance, only close up. This has made depth perception unbearable. It is a struggle to walk a straight line - very difficult to drive during the day and impossible at night. I wish that I had never had this done, and I will not have the cataract surgery in my right eye. Probably not the doctor's fault, but I was not prepared for the results. It has been two months of frustration since surgery and my vision is still changing, but not improving. Be prepared to wait 2 to 3 hours to see the doctor, even with an appointment. Total time spent for each patient is approx. 10 minutes.
