Testimonials Refractive Lens Exchange
I am an active person who works full time, enjoys outside activities, traveling and am an avid reader. I was wearing glasses and contacts for distance vision and as I was getting ‘older’, my up-close vision was slightly changing. I also noticed that my night vision was becoming less sharp. Wearing my glasses and taking them off to work on the computer or to read, and then having to switch to prescription sunglasses when outside OR when I chose to wear my contact lenses I would have to remember to bring along my non-prescription sunglasses – was becoming quite a nuisance to my life style.
Choosing to have the Refractive Lens Exchange (with multi-focal lens) surgery was life changing! It has been a year since my surgery and I am happy with my decision. In my daily life, I no longer have to switch from glasses to prescription sunglasses. When I travel with my family, I don’t have to pack contact lenses and prescription sunglasses and regular glasses and non-prescription sunglasses! I am able to read a book at the perfect distance and my night vision has improved greatly! Thank you Kremer!
I came to Kremer for a consultation for LASIK vision correction. I knew I had a fairly large astigmatism and that it may not be an option for me. I soon found that to be true. I asked Dr. Aronsky if there were any other options. He showed me information on lens replacement. Initially, I was scared off by both the procedure and additional cost. More importantly, he patiently went through all of my questions and concerns – knowing that I would probably not return.
After I left, I was contacted by another eye center in Reading, PA and I advised them that I had been told I was not a candidate for LASIK. They asked who I had seen. I told them Dr. Aronsky. Their response was, “well, if Aronsky said you can’t get LASIK done, it is settled, he is the best.” In any case, I did some more research and considered the possibility of the lens replacement surgery. I elected to proceed with trepidation.
The right eye was done first, 20/25 the next day. Local optometrist were surprised. But, I was expecting 20/20. Left eye two weeks later. That got to 20/20 pretty quickly. The right eye, however, lagged behind at 20/25 and didn’t seem to be improving. At his request, I had consult with Dr. Aronsky about the future of my right eye. At this point, I had heard from many people in the business that Aronsky is the best. Unsure what to expect, thinking they’ve already got my money, most people would be happy at 20/25, they won’t want to do anymore, I put the fate of it in Aronsky’s hands and asked him what he would do if he were me. He said, I would have the lens turned and try to correct the remaining astigmatism. I got a second opinion from an optometrist I had confidence in who said, “if he is offering to do it (surprised due to my pre-surgery level of astigmatism), do it.” With a little concern, I proceeded. I am happy to report that I am now 20/15 with both eyes. In fact, the right eye is now stronger than the left. It has been made clear to me that most surgeons would have just left it at 20/25. Dr. Aronsky is clearly one of the best and takes pride in what he does.
