High Definition

I had cataract surgery with Dr. Benz on December 1, 2014 in my left eye.  I opted for the High Definition package at the time of my surgery to correct astigmatism and customize my procedure.

I will admit that I was a little skeptical as to how much improvement I would have after surgery.  Once I had the surgery I was made a believer!  I can see such an improvement in my left eye compared to my right eye.  I anticipate having surgery in my right eye in the near future and will also pursue High Definition with that surgery.

The surgery itself did not last long and I was comfortable during the procedure particularly when the laser was in use.  I didn’t experience any pain during the procedure.  Dr. Benz talked to me during the entire process and this made me so comfortable.  I was aware of what was going on and he guided me throughout the process.

I am excited to have the High Definition package with my second eye and I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking to take their surgery a step above and beyond. — Janette Greiss



I have had cataract surgery in both eyes and pursued the high definition package with both eyes.  I feel like my vision at distance is very good compared to what is was before surgery.  The thing I learned through this entire process is that I should have had surgery a long time ago so that I could have enjoyed my vision to the fullest instead of dealing with blurry vision for so long.  I recommend Eyes of York for cataract surgery. — David Sheehan



I had cataract surgery with high definition two weeks ago.  This was my first eye.  I would like to tell a future patient that colors are terrific and that my night-time driving is so much better.  Things are coming in sharper especially at intermediate ranges and I do not feel like I have to use my glasses for computer work anymore.  — Dale River



I have had cataract surgery in both of my eyes.  I opted for the high definition package at the time of my surgery to ensure that I wouldn’t have to rely on my glasses for things at distance.  Before my cataract surgery, things were cloudy but now they are very clear.

My glasses prescription before surgery had a higher amount of astigmatism and the laser was able to eliminate almost all of it!  Dr. Benz made me aware of the fact that the laser would be able to get rid of most but not all of my astigmatism and I feel that my expectations were met based on the things he told me at the time of my evaluation.  I plan to have a new pair of glasses made with my new prescription in case there is an instance that I want something to come in even sharper than what it would be with my naked eyes.

The office helped me to understand all the steps from beginning to end and this was most helpful.  If you are thinking of having cataract surgery I want to know that the surgery itself doesn’t take long and you should call Dr. Benz at Eyes of York!  — Henry Arnold
