    Patient seen for:
    After 60 years of wearing glasses, I now have perfect distance vision and am able to read my phone or watch without glasses. Dr Bizrah explained the process and the options and delivered the outcome he promised. I was very apprehensive of having any procedure done on my eyes and Dr Bizrah made me feel comfortable and relaxed during surgery.
