I had lenses removed from my eyes 58 years ago (age 11).

Posted by @ronwegner, Nov 28, 2016

Because of 52 years of contact wear veins seem to be growing into the eyes with could cause a problem later in life. I am looking for an Ophthalmologist
who is willing to implant lenses in my eyes. As you might imagine this surgery done in 1958 is not as pretty as it would be done if it were done today. If anyone can help let me know.

Dr. Masket in Century City, Los Angeles is the best 4 this. He undid a horrible Restor lens for me. Marian​ Dooley​

Thank you for your suggestion. Ron

Had 1 from Dr. Wolftan in Torrance CA. BIG mistake – eyes were so much worse. Blurred vision at nite. had to put my computer at 24 pt type bold – used 10 point b4.
had it taken out by Dr. M in Century City. and he wondered why Wolstan would have used a $7000. lens for such a simple cataract. Look at Restor website. different $$$$ all over the country.
Now I suffer from dry, irritated eye forever if nr dust or pollen.
no insurance coverage 4 RESTORE
