I had both eyes done and I'm very happy I chose the multifocal lenses. I'm a golfer, and this has enabled me to not only see and follow my own golf ball, I can also see to record scores. The procedure itself was remarkably easy. The team that Dr. Matzkin has assembled were fantastic.

I love Dr. Matzkin and everyone who works there. The entire process was problem free and being able to see clearly all the time is a constant joy. My experience couldn't have been better.
