Cataract Surgery



“Having cataract surgery is the best thing I have ever done! As a photographer, I take many photos outside. After surgery, I could see everything so clearly and all of the colors I was missing! The morning after my first eye was done, I went to turn on the gas stove to make myself tea and the color of the flame was just beautiful. You don’t realize all the surroundings you are missing out on until you have had this done!” -Susan K., Wrightsville, PA 5/8/18


“From the time you walk in the door, everyone treats you with respect and dignity. From the front desk staff, to the doctors, to the nurses, just everyone is so pleasant and personalized. Everyone makes you feel comfortable and helps to ease your fear. I was really impressed with how well everything was explained and every time I had a question, it was answered. I decided to move forward with one of the higher packages for my cataract surgery and had even paid for the procedure. Someone from the office called me shortly after and said Dr. Benz was reviewing the tests they ran and discovered something that showed that I wouldn’t benefit from the higher package. They scheduled me for a standard surgery instead and reimbursed me the difference. So many other places would have just let it go, but I just couldn’t believe the honesty and integrity they showed in doing that! I’m so happy I was recommended to Eyes of York and after my experience I can see why everyone I talked to has been so happy with their results…I now recommend them to all of my friends who are starting to develop cataracts!” -Linda S., York, PA 2/14/18


“I’m happy that I was referred here by my eye doctor and that I went through with the appointment. My cataract procedures went very smoothly and I would recommend Eyes of York to anyone who needs surgery done.” -Nancy, 9/27/17


“Dr. Benz and the entire staff are just wonderful and I can’t thank them enough. During my cataract surgery, they made me feel so comfortable and even joked with me beforehand to help ease my nervousness. I would recommend anyone with eye problems to come here.” -Norman S., 9/28/17


"I’m so glad I had my eyes operated on by Dr. Visco. I’ve worn glasses since second grade and contacts as an adult. I have never seen as well as I do now! The people in her office are all so friendly and helpful. They don’t make you feel uncomfortable when you ask questions, they simply smile and answer anything you’ve asked. The cataract surgery was done in a pleasant and clean atmosphere. I would highly recommend Dr. Visco and her staff to anyone considering eye surgery." -Shannon M.


"After wearing glasses since fourth grade and having to come to Eyes of York for cataract surgery and lens implants; I am astonished at the results of the surgery! I no longer need to wear glasses for distance and only need reading glasses. I had no infection or complications from my surgery and all instructions for pre and post care were detailed to ensure no forgetting of medicated drops to the eyes. The staff are also very cordial and helpful. The doctor has a very calm demeanor and also keep the patient calm through the whole procedure." -Norma D.


"My experience with Eyes of York to and after my cataract surgeries has been wonderful. I had two different lens implants; a Toric lens in my right eye to correct astigmatism and a standard lens implant in my left eye utilizing ORA OptiPlus. The treatment plan I developed with Dr. Visco prior to surgery met my expectations! In the 1990’s I had radial keratotomy in both eyes in an effort to eliminate my prescription. This procedure is done by making incisions on the corneal surface. Dr. Visco was very thorough and took much consideration into my prior ocular history. I am very pleased with my vision at distance and very happy with the quality of my near vision with the assistance of readers. Things are still coming along in my left eye as I am only two weeks out but overall I am please with my visual outcome. I would highly recommend Eyes of York if you are considering cataract surgery." -Norma K.


"I had cataract surgery on January 21, 2015 with Dr. Visco. I elected to have the Toric lens implant available in the Legal to Drive package to get the most correction possible. I feel my distance vision is wonderful and that colors are so vivid! I am excited to have my second eye done! I have been very happy with the experience I have had at Eyes of York and feel that this office is very well organized. The staff members have been very friendly and informative. I was very happy with the eye drop instruction sheet that the office provided my with and felt that it helped me to stay organized with my pre and post-operative eye drops." -Josephine S.


"I had cataract surgery with Dr. Benz on December 1, 2014 in my left eye. I opted for the High Definition package at the time of my surgery to correct astigmatism and customize my procedure.

I will admit that I was a little skeptical as to how much improvement I would have after surgery. Once I had the surgery I was made a believer! I can see such an improvement in my left eye compared to my right eye. I anticipate having surgery in my right eye in the near future and will also pursue High Definition with that surgery.

The surgery itself did not last long and I was comfortable during the procedure particularly when the laser was in use. I didn’t experience any pain during the procedure. Dr. Benz talked to me during the entire process and this made me so comfortable. I was aware of what was going on and he guided me throughout the process.

I am excited to have the High Definition package with my second eye and I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking to take their surgery a step above and beyond." -Janette G.


"I have had cataract surgery in both eyes and pursued the high definition package with both eyes. I feel like my vision at distance is very good compared to what is was before surgery. The thing I learned through this entire process is that I should have had surgery a long time ago so that I could have enjoyed my vision to the fullest instead of dealing with blurry vision for so long. I recommend Eyes of York for cataract surgery." -David S.


"I had cataract surgery with high definition two weeks ago. This was my first eye. I would like to tell a future patient that colors are terrific and that my night-time driving is so much better. Things are coming in sharper especially at intermediate ranges and I do not feel like I have to use my glasses for computer work anymore." -Dale R.


"I have had cataract surgery in both of my eyes. I opted for the high definition package at the time of my surgery to ensure that I wouldn’t have to rely on my glasses for things at distance. Before my cataract surgery, things were cloudy but now they are very clear. My glasses prescription before surgery had a higher amount of astigmatism and the laser was able to eliminate almost all of it! Dr. Benz made me aware of the fact that the laser would be able to get rid of most but not all of my astigmatism and I feel that my expectations were met based on the things he told me at the time of my evaluation. I plan to have a new pair of glasses made with my new prescription in case there is an instance that I want something to come in even sharper than what it would be with my naked eyes. The office helped me to understand all the steps from beginning to end and this was most helpful. If you are thinking of having cataract surgery I want to know that the surgery itself doesn’t take long and you should call Dr. Benz at Eyes of York!" -Henry A.


"Having the surgery was the best thing I’ve done, my vision was improved 110% compared to the whole time in my life before. Having one useable eye most of my life, when I started losing vision is that eye I had to do something. So they sent me to Eyes of York and it was the best thing that could have happened. I have been very pleased with the way surgery went– no pain what so every. I can finally enjoy my life. Thank you Eyes of York!" -Bernard D., Jr.


"I am very pleased with the results of my cataract surgery and Tecnis Intraocular lenses. My distance vision, in particular, is better than I can remember. My past vision with contact lenses was super and I still feel like my distance vision is even better now. The procedures were painless and the laser technology is fascinating. I am healing well and I have 20/20 vision!" -David M.

Our Practice

"I met Dr. Lehn when I was referred by my eyeglasses maker because of elevated eye pressure. The first thing she did was tell me to stand up while she checked my eye pressure (so I was in a better position to check my pressure.) Viola! It was normal. I have been coming for years. She is extremely professional, kind, gentle, and most important, GOOD. I have cataracts and eventually I will need them operated on. I have asked her to go back to school to become an eye surgeon. Plan B is to have my eyes operated on ONLY by someone she recommends." -Roger T.
