Cataract Testimonials

Kate approached our team this morning as she was leaving and said she wanted to stop and say a huge Thank You for continually coming into the front reception room and talking to folks and doing it in a ‘fun’ way so as to keep folks smiling! She further said ‘This practice is fabulous and everyone is always smiling and so helpful. I drive from Camden, N. C. and enjoy my drive here knowing I have such wonderful staff and doctors taking care of me!’

Mr. Brewer is thrilled with this right eye after having his lens replaced at VEC. Now he can see without glasses in the distance and he is very happy!

Anna Weaver had a visually significant cataract that we removed. She has a lot of issues with being able to lie flat on her back and still breathe, and she was concerned about being able to position for the surgery, but with some maneuvering we were able to do the surgery and one day post op she is seeing 20/25+1 compared with 20/150 preop. She says “the colors are brighter!”

Jeffrey was -18 in his right eye and -16 in his left eye (very nearsighted!) and had astigmatism in both eyes. He had cataract surgery with Dr. Yeu and is extremely happy with the outcome!

When I walked into your lobby, I was immediately greeted, kindly and professionally. My wait was never very long and everyone who assisted me along the way performed in a most professional, experienced and friendly manner. I noticed everyone around me was also receiving the same wonderful service. Thank you so much. I am thrilled to (finally!) be a patient of VEC!

The staff of Virginia Eye Consultants are, without a doubt, one of the most professional that I have thus far encountered within the medical establishment, or any organization for that matter. I want to sincerely thank Virginia Eye Consultants for the absolutely amazing procedures and the stunning results of the operations to restore my vision. Thank you all.

Nearly 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes and was referred to Dr. Scoper for corrective surgery. Following his examination, Dr. Scoper said I was a perfect candidate to receive the new Crystalens System. With my decision to use Crystalens, I became one of the first implant patients in Virginia, and Dr. Scoper’s first.

Both eye surgeries went perfectly, and I was amazed at the immediate improvement in my vision’s color and clarity. Since my Crystalens implantations in 2004, Dr. Scoper has conducted annual extensive eye examinations, and the results have never varied. My post-operative 20/20 vision hasn’t changed; I am still blessed with 20/20 vision nine years later.

Before Crystalens, I constantly wore either bi-focals or contact lenses to see clearly. Now, I only require OTC reading glasses for my most exacting vision requirements—either sewing or reading “fine print” instructions.

Deciding to use the Crystalens System was one of the best decisions I ever made. I strongly recommend Dr. Scoper and Crystalens for cataract corrective surgery to anyone.

It was about 4 months ago, no maybe 6 or 7….oh, I really can’t remember, but let’s just say that sometime within the last 12 months, my vision took a rapid decline. I assumed along with my husband and some co-workers that reading glasses would be in my cart during my next trip to Target or Walgreens. Not long after, I noticed a severe decline in my distance vision. The summer sun’s glare making driving difficult at times and the flags at the golf course so distant I assumed there were no flags at all! The declining state of my distance and computer vision was unsettling. I kept this to myself for a while as I was in a state of denial and disbelief. The deterioration of my vision was rapidly advancing so it was difficult to gauge.

I knew an appointment with an optometrist was at the top of the To Do list. On Monday morning, I scheduled a full eye exam and learned I had cataracts. After speaking with ophthalmologists at a few local eye centers, I chose to go with Dr. Yeu at Virginia Eye Consultants. The entire staff was well-organized, SO friendly and accommodating. When you first enter VEC, its vast sized waiting area filled with patients can be a bit intimidating. But then upon signing in, you’re greeted with a warm smile, cookies and coffee, if you like!
Dr. Yeu would not let me move forward with a multi-focal lens until we cleared up or at least tried to clear up my moderate dry eye. Dr. Yeu was very direct, honest and transparent during the entire exam, and as such, she explained that the multi-focal lens would not be nearly as effective as it should if my dry eye remained moderate. Luckily, my dry eye cleared up with her recommended drops and nutritional supplement. We decided to go with a multi-focal lens in my dominant right eye and a mono lens in my left.

Last week was the big day, my first of two cataract surgeries with Dr. Yeu and team. Both Dr. Yeu and her team were amazing. During the laser surgery, Dr. Yeu talked my through it with encouraging comments to let me know how well the procedure was going. Then she counted down the last seconds of the process and exclaimed, “Congrats. About 75% of the surgery is complete and the astigmatism is cleared up!” The following day, my post operation appointment showed 20/25 vision! Yesterday was my one week post op meeting and my right eye vision was 20/20 for both my near and far vision! I’m looking forward to next week when my left eye is fixed.

Big thanks to the team at Virginia Eye Consultants and Dr. Yeu!
