Dr. Scott is an Ophthalmologist.

He took a great history for a cataract surgery, but winter set in, and the procedure got done in Vero Beach, Florida.

Ask me how it turned out.

Default Dr. Scott

Dr. Scott at Laconia Eye is an excellent eye medical doctor/surgeon/opthalmalogist. But his partner in the practice, Dr. Garfinkle, retired last December and they haven't yet found another MD to replace him. According to their website they have several optometrists, but Dr. Scott is currently the only medical doctor.

As a result, I'm not sure he is taking on any new patients at this time. Worth a call to his office to inquire, though.

I went to Laconia Eye for exam and one pair of glasses. Glasses very pricey at any eye doctor place. So I bought two additional pair online and saved some money. GlassesUSA. You download a photo of your head and you can virtually try them on. So far so good. But at my age I know what styles work and what styles don’t work. Good luck!

Agree. Got a fair price at the eye shop across from Winnisquam marina. Can’t remember the name. BJ, Costco and Walmart can’t be beat if you are shopping price

Exclamation Be Careful Out There...

I can't focus sharply in the space between eight inches to thirty inches, so most bench projects and meal preparations are done in a cloud.

Friends are disappointed when I can't tell them what the markings are on familiar aircraft overhead--or even which have amphibious floats.

The Internet says the vast majority of these restorative surgeries have happy customers, but I was never told that this procedure, once made, can't be fixed.

Very interesting. The same thing happened to me. I thought I was the only one. It is fuzzy for me both far and near and I keep blinking to try to clear it up. But I cannot make out things in the distance, I can see them but not sure what they are. The good thing is I can read small print without glasses. Nice not to have glasses all over. I have the second surgery too but I didn't see much difference if any.
