Evaluations of Visual Outcomes with Various PCIOLs: Aspheric Diffractive MF, Aspheric Apodized Differactive MF, or Accommodating IOLs (Presentation)
Went well.....that would represent a penchant for incredible understatement. I am writing this to you without use of glasses, on my ipad, and not quite one full day out of surgery. My depth perception is back, and my equilibrium is also back. In short, I am well on my way back to the vision I had when I flew a Phantom F4 fighter jet in the service of our country. In those days it was perfect.....that was 47 years ago. I put on my first pair of glasses 37 years ago, and have had to use corrective lenses since, in one form or another. Today I will be closing my glass case for the last time in my life. I will never again have the notation, must wear corrective lenses, on my driver's license; prothetic when you consider I have to renew that license this year on my birthday. I am going to fly my Lear Lonhorn 56 jet, as pilot in command because I now can pass the 1st Class Medical Certificate...not 2nd class, 1st. You could not possibly know what this means to me. Dr. Sadri's extraordinary skill as an eye surgeon in Newport Beach, as an ardent student of his craft, his understanding and compassion as a medical professional, and that I believe him to be just a plain ole "damn good soul," combine to make him a giant in his profession.
Then there are the Connie Kinney's who are the "make it happen" people that are vitally crucial in any successful organization. I am so jealous that Dr. Sadri found her first. She can go to work for KeyNO Ranch Holdings any time. The entire squad at Atlantis Eyecare Anaheim show how a well managed, vibrant, and results driven team can make a difference. Jonathan answering the phone with a bright cheerful attitude, Dr. Collins with her pleasant demeanor, Michelle at Bella Terra doing that A Scan thing with red hair and a sunny smile, Cindy Decker and a behemoth effort to get this done sooner, Barbara in scheduling who sent information packets as thick as War and Peace, and to many others encountered along the way.
Bottom line, this team came together, fixed a really big oopsie, and changed a person's life. You people are game changers. You have no idea how important this outcome is to me. Perhaps when you all reach the so-called 'golden years,' you will be standing in the twilight of your life remembering lives you impacted and changed simply by doing your job well.
I waiting for this mild surgical discomfort I was supposed to feel yesterday, and partly today. I'll let ya know if it shows up. One day out, and the results are astounding. I know from experience it only gets better from here. It is a journey that I am glad to take.
With warm regards JKK
Doctor Sadari was very informative, and above all honest about what needed to be done to correct my vision. When he said he would treat me like "family" I felt I found a Doctor who really cares.William J.
In a word - wonderful. One could not ask for a friendlier more courteous group of people and Dr Sadri seems like a totally down to earth guy with great knowledge and experience to go along with his warm personality. The Anaheim staff seems efficient and effective at their respective positions.Gardner H.
Dear Dr. Sadri,
Just a note thank you for your professionalism and outstanding bedside manner which gave me comfort and confidence during my recent cataract surgery which you performed.
A related story I would like to share. Before the surgery I had done a minor kitchen upgrade which included buying a new stove top. My sink is bisque so I went to an appliance store and picked out a matching stove top right off the shelf. Well, after the surgery, to my surprise I found out that the sink I bought , by sight only, is snow white. I recall how you had told me that an effect of having cataracts is that over time everything you view is through yellowish tint. You were right on. I am still amazed how much more brilliance my vision now shows me.Gerard P.
I would like to take a moment and offer my deepest gratitude to Dr. Ehsan Sadri for his above average level of care and expertise regarding one of my most valuable tools, my eyes. As a professional luthier and custom violin builder working under millimeter-fractional tolerances, all my skills and tools need to be honed every sharp; and when I was beginning to experience some faltering with my eyesight including elevated ocular pressure, I found myself exceedingly fortunate to have met Dr. Sadri in time. Following a brief series of outpatient surgical procedures I am thrilled to report my eyesight has remained stable for some time now, enabling me to continue in a career where visualizing proportion and fine detail are paramount. Thank you Dr. Sadri for my “new eyes”! I am ever grateful, as are the many artists who have subsequently benefited musically from your expertise, wisdom, and kind character.Boris O.
Dear Dr. Sadri:
I just had to write this letter because I wanted you to know a few things. When my eye doctor told me that I had cataracts in both eyes and needed to have surgery to replace the lenses fear could have followed in my life.
I was referred to Atlantis Eyecare and you. The first time we met was a very pleasant experience and you told me that everything would be O.K. and set my mind at ease. You have played such an important part in my life – your removal of my cataracts and replacement of my lenses was done with great care and a very professional staff. I am thrilled by your expertise and talent has done for me!
I have never had so many compliments on how beautiful I look these days. I might add at an age soon to be 82.
I know I made the right choice in choosing the best lenses. I no longer wear glasses. I can see to read and I now can recognize my granddaughter playing soccer across the field.
Thank you so very much for the continuing monitoring and care. You have given me the most precious gift of wonderful eyesight to live with for the rest of my life,
Dear Doctor Sadri,
I am writing this letter to let you know how pleased I am with the results of my lens implant surgery. I elected the premium lens implant and the results are truly amazing. I have required corrective eyewear for most of my adult life. The surgery you performed has restored my vision to 20/20 and I no longer require glasses. I am able to read newspapers, label contents, etc with ease.
I am an avid golfer. Since the surgery, my handicap has dropped by three strokes. I credit that to my ability to read the greens and see the ball better.
Thank you, and your helpful staff, for correcting my vision problems and improving my quality of life.Michael K.
What can I say, I passed my DMV eye test – No glasses. I can drive now (no glasses) what a wonderful feeling to be free of glasses. It was hard to pass my eye test at the DMV with glasses. Dr. Sadri told me what I needed to see clear. Work on my computer without glasses, read no glasses. If you want to see like you did when you were young see Dr. Sadri. Just never dreamed of my eyes seeing like they do.
Thank you Dr. SadriCarolyn O.
I began using reading glasses when I was about 40. Then approximately eight years later, I got my first prescription glasses (bifocals, no less). Since I worked at a computer for 40 hours a week, I got REALLY tired of looking down my nose at the screen, and acquired prescription reading glasses (two pair, one for work, one for home). I also tried the transitional (I think they were called solar lenses at that time), but really hated them. It took them too long to change when I went outside and then stayed too dark when I went back in. Ergo, prescription sunglasses. That was fun (not to mention quite expensive)! Sunglasses to work, change to bifocals, sit down and change to "computer glasses", get up and change to bifocals, then go outside and put on the sunglasses. Over the years, I had a GIANT collection of glasses to give away!
Finally, after 25 years, my cataracts suddenly grew and I was sent to Atlantis Eye Care. Then, I finally got lucky! I was sent to Dr. Sadri for the surgery. He recommended crystal lenses, which I jumped at! The surgeries (one on each eye) were three weeks apart in March of 2010. Each time I went right back to work in two days. It was recommended to me to buy a pair of 1.25 reading glasses, which I did, never had to use, and have since given them away. My vision is AWESOME!!! I can read prescriptions and other tiny print with no problems.
So, needless to say, Dr. Sadri is my ultimate HERO!
Thank you Thank you Thank you Dr. Sadri!Bonnie M.
During my early teenage years through my twenties and thirties I was a very good athlete. This was because of my excellent hand-eye coordination. My good eye sight contributed to my hand-eye coordination. I started wearing glasses my senior year of high school for reading. I begin wearing them full time when I discovered that I could hit a baseball better with my glasses on. I worked as an electronic technician and engineer requiring that I be able to see and read fine graduations on measuring scales to 1/100 of an inch. I need additional magnification to do this and started wearing bifocals. As the years past I needed more and more magnification to even read to 1/32 of an inch. One year ago Dr. Sadri implanted multi-focal lens in both of my eyes. I can now read my measuring scales to 1/64 of an inch. or ½ mm without any aid. With minimal magnification I can read even finer graduations.Bob W.
"I had cataract surgery on August 5 and 26 respectively - Dr. Sadri performed the surgeries – he was great – so caring and knowledgeable. He made the surgery seem extremely easy and quick. Any apprehension I had was put to rest. My vision has improved greatly and am sure will continue to do so until fully healed. I am glad that he was my surgeon – he and his staff are tops".Fran G.
Thank you for treating me with courtesy and kindness during my recent eyelid surgery. It was not exactly something I looked forward to but you made my visits very pleasant. Thank you for your caring attitude. Gratefully, Barbara W.Barbara W.
I could not be more satisfied with all aspects of the procedure and the after care. I am a military widow and was treated with excellent respect. Thank you so muchJacqueline M.
My eyes are responding so fast to being able to see clearly that I find it hard to remember how foggy it used to be. The operation itself seemed to happen quickly and you and your staff were very professional and made the whole experience a pleasant memory.Bill O.
After experiencing such an unbelievable result of the cataract surgery you performed on my eyes, I feel compelled to write to you and express my appreciation for your expertise, your comforting mannerism and complete interest in the after examinations.
I would have never believed that clarity of objects I had been looking at had diminished to such a degree until the cataracts were removed and I was able to see such beauty in the simple things such as the planes, skies, trees, and flowers.Aubrey B.
The best eye doctor in OC! Fixed my eyes!!. This is the best Eye Doctor in OC period. I saw three other ophthalmologists and Dr. Sadri operated on my cataracts. He was nice, the results were impressive. His staff is the best. I can read without glasses now!!!
Im telling you you gotta see him.Tom H.
Came for 2nd opinion and I will definitely return. Really liked Dr. Sadri & I referred my momToni S.
Dr.Sadri not only has the most charming personality but he is also an amazing doctor. He was the only doc that actually spend more than the typical 5 min visit and really asked me about the issues I was encountering with my vision.
