Meet Our May Spotlight Patient: Louis
At first, 68 year old Louis didn’t even notice anything was wrong. His wife had noticed he was squinting more than he used to, and he complained about it being too dim around the house, but it was nothing that seemed cause for much concern. But as his vision grew increasingly blurry, and the halos that began to surround lights played havoc with his night vision, a visit to his family doctor confirmed that he was developing cataracts in both eyes. Unless the condition was treated, he would most likely continue to lose vision.
Despite being retired, Louis still maintains an active lifestyle. He swims regularly and enjoys nature walks in the park with any of his eight grandchildren. In addition, he is an avid bowler, and participates in a league every week with his wife. The thought of not being able to enjoy those activities was devastating.
Fortunately, his primary care doctor referred him to board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. William Segal at Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons. The procedure was a huge success, and Louis now enjoys 20/20 vision in both eyes, without the need for glasses. Best of all, just a few short days after the surgery, he stunned his friends at the alley by bowling a near-perfect 298!
“Dr. Segal did a great job,” said Louis. “If I knew anyone who needed surgery on their eyes I would absolutely recommend him.”
