I'm a 65 year old physician who recently had bilateral cataract surgery with Symfony lens implant by Dr. Waters. The results have been amazing. I no longer need glasses for reading or distant vision. I highly recommend Dr. Waters for anyone contemplating cataract surgery. The Symfony lens is a premium lens which costs more than the standard lens covered by insurance. However, it allows for both near and distant vision without glasses. The additional charge is well worth it for something so important as great vision. I couldn't be happier with the outstanding care I received and the fantastic results!

The entire staff at Complete Eye Care is amazing! I had LASIK surgery in both eyes performed by Dr. Waters a week ago, every single step of the process has been completely painless (figuratively and literally). Everyone in the office has been kind, welcoming, and efficient at all of my visits - they also took the time to fully explain every aspect of the procedure and pre/post op process. My only regret is that I didn't have this done years ago! Dr. Waters (and his awesome team) take very evident pride in what they do and pride in their patient outcomes. I couldn't be happier with my results, having 20/15 vision and not having to wear glasses or contacts anymore is better than I could have imagined!

Office staff is just so friendly and knowledgeable and Dr. Waters is the best. I have worn glasses for 60+years. Had eye surgery with lens implant and can now see without glasses! Dr.Waters is always there to answer any questions you may have. No pain just great results. I highly recommend.
