QES is excellent! Dr. Priest examined me and made me aware of a substantial cataract problem in my left eye. We discussed the options. I had surgery on 9/10/18. Everything was great. I can see much better now. I will only need glasses to read. I never got a chance to personally thank Dr. Priest after the surgery. So now, I am saying "thank you somuch" for a job well done! An excellent surgeon. See you next year for the right eye!

Dr. Priest-Allen suggested taking out my right lens out of my glasses. I have done so. It is totally amazing how clear and bright my right eye is. I wonder how my left eye will be after September 9th. Dr. Priest-Allen is highly efficient and knowledgeable. I trust her decisions completely.
