"I have been wearing glasses for 35 years, I was referred to Dr. Reeves for cataract surgery. He explained everything to me before surgery and left nothing out. I no longer wear glasses, and would recommend Dr. Reeves with no question.
Thank you, Dr. Reeves. Thank you."
In December 2011, I was told by an area Optometrist, that I had fast growing cataracts. He told me that these would grow so fast that I “would” be having surgery within one year. In July 2012, I went to see Dr. Reeves, who confirmed the diagnosis from the previous doctor. He took the time to sit, unhurriedly, and discuss all options with us. He gave us all of the information needed to assist us in making this important decision. Dr. Reeves then told us to think it over and decide how we wanted to proceed. I found his advertised “free consultation” to be exactly that.
In December 2012, I went back to Dr. Reeves to plan for my cataract surgery. I had put off the surgery as long as I possibly could. Upon examination, it was determined that without my glasses, I was legally blind, seeing multiple images and especially at night, a single light looked to be a “wreath” of lights. I had gotten so bad, I no longer drove at night. Again, Dr. Reeves took the time to sit, talk, and discuss all options with us, as well as answering all questions directly and honestly. One statement that stood out to us was “I cannot recreate what God gave you, but I will do my best”. His willingness to invest of himself in me, the patient, and my family was both refreshing and rewarding. My first surgery was scheduled very quickly, as I was desperate to regain my eyesight. During this evaluation, Dr. Reeves shared the different options of lenses as well as the pros and cons of each. After much discussion, I made the decision to go with the multi-focal lens. One of the better decisions that I have made in my lifetime. After my first surgery, I went back for my follow-up and was so pleased that I asked if we couldn’t just go right then and do the second. In early January, I went and Dr. Reeves performed my other surgery. I had quickly gone to 20-30 in my left eye and 20-50 in the right. I had a complication of a scratched cornea, with my right eye and upon contacting Dr. Reeves, was seen after hours without hesitation.
After one and one half months post op. on one eye and three weeks on the other, I now can see 20-20 in both eyes, with no glasses of any kind. My experience with Dr. Reeves has been nothing short of wonderful and his mannerisms and patient care are highly commendable. I would recommend him and his practice to anyone needing or considering any type of eye surgery.
Thank you Dr. Reeves, and may God bless you.P. Lane
