    Kind of funny using the words “cutting edge” to describe the procedure. If I ever need cataract surgery, I’ll be glad to know the newest technique is available in Maine.

      I just had cataract surgery done at Vision care. I now have 20/20 vision again but I also need reading glasses. I could have opted to have the multifocal lenses put in my eyes so that I wouldn’t need reading glasses but Medicare wouldn’t cover the extra cost of those  lenses and they would have cost me an extra $1900. per eye. As stated in the article,if you opted for the multifocal lenses and the laser surgery you would have to pay $3100. per eye out of pocket.  Even though these options were out of reach for me economically I’m still extremely happy with my vision and the care I received at Vision Care.

    Vision Care is the best. I walked in wearing glasses and out without and  20/20 vision in both eyes to boot.

      I know both of these doctors personally and they are the BEST!!  I would trust my eyes to them anytime….in fact, I already have.

    I wonder do you have to wait for the eyes to get really bad to have this surgery?  My eyes aren’t that bad yet but can’t live without glasses and my husband and I re frame from going out at night because our vision isn’t good at nite..does anybody know the answer to that question?

      I’m not sure how bad your vision has to be. I do know the cataracs have to be at a certain stage but not sure what that means. Call and ask.

    They seem like a great place, however the cost quoted is in ADDITION to the regular price for the operation! and then the lens cost even more!

    And, this isn’t printed in the form of a paid advertisement … why??

    My wife had cateract surgery performed using the conventional method a few years ago.  She had the multi-focal lenses installed.  She has had vision problems in one eye since the surgery, probably due to the non-precise placement of that lens.  Does anyone know if the surgery can be repeated on that eye…take the lens out and put a new one in with the laser device reported in this story???
