I wish to begin this review with a heartfelt thanks to Dr. Dogan and his staff! While this review is primarily in reference to the cataract/lens replacement surgery I just received, it is important to note that I underwent an oculoplastic procedure last year with Dr. Dogan. I was completely pleased with that surgery, and it was the compelling reason for choosing Dr. Dogan for my lens replacement.
My lens surgery was conducted at the highest standard of care. For others who might be considering Dr. Dogan for medical procedures, I am pleased to provide him my full recommendation. All aspects of my procedure were attended to with thoughtfulness, skill and professionalism.
I am a birdwatcher and amateur bird/wildlife photographer. I have been aware of my emergent cataract issue for a few years, but it really became noticeable this past year while travelling in Colombia. As a 64-year-old, I had significant myopia and required reading glasses. I have used progressive lens glasses in the past, but found them less than satisfactory to use with my binoculars and camera; particularly, since my bird subjects are constantly on the move. Now, with the trifocal interocular lenses, I don't need glasses at all!
In terms of value and standard of care, I have been extremely pleased. The analytical/assessment equipment used and the Alcon PanOptix lenses I received were state-of-the-art. My limited insurance vision coverage in the USA would only have covered a percentage of monofocal lenses and the surgery with no coverage for the after-surgery medications. Just the eyedrops (one of three eyedrop prescriptions provided at no extra charge) would have cost me $1000 in the USA! For trifocal lens surgery for both eyes with aftercare and prescriptions, I would have been out nearly $15,000 in the USA. My cost with Dr. Dogan was less than 20% of that.
The trifocal lenses mean I am able to enjoy birding and photography at a level I have never known up until now. Thank you again Dr. Dogan, for splendid lens replacement and oculoplastic care. YOU ARE THE BEST!!
