I had cataract surgery in both eyes by Dr. Bello with the Crystalens. I had no idea prior to surgery, what I was missing. Colors are amazing; my vision is crisp and clear.
God does wonderful things through Dr. Bello. As my husband said, “You had the best surgeon”.
Thank you so much!
I recently had cataract surgery where Dr. Bello implanted Crystalenses in both of my eyes. I went into this expecting an improvement in my vision. To my utter amazement, the results were far beyond my expectations; objects are sharply defined, colors are vibrant, and my vision is clear at all distances. When I use to play golf I couldn't see the flight of the ball, in fact my playing partner would have to tell me the direction of the ball. All that has changed; I can now see it for myself! If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't hesitate for even a second.
P.S. In the interest of honesty, there is a downside to the cataract surgery; I can actually see how terrible my golf shots are.
My experience with choosing and receiving a Crystalens implant has been altogether very satisfactory. My cataract progressed rather rapidly and I felt unsure when driving at night, fluorescent lights made things look blurred indoors, and my overall vision was not good. One of my associates at work had the Crystalens in both eyes with very good results; so, after discussing it with Dr. Bello, I decided this was the way to go.
My implant experience was painless and comfortable. All my preoperative anxieties were needless. The procedure went smoothly and recuperation was effortless.
My vision prior to the Crystalens® procedure was very bad. I had tried glasses, contacts, trifocals, and readers. Night vision was very scary too because of glare, halos and starbursts of light. I had difficulty estimating car distance when changing lanes, and I could not read street signs, maps, and everything was just one big blur.
I now enjoy my life to the fullest. I can see near, far, and in between without glasses. Everything I see is clearer, brighter and vivid. I no longer have to squint to read.
When Adoracion Caturan walked into the office of John B. Bello, M.D., she had absolutely no idea what surprise was in store for her. Adoracion, you see, is legally blind, unemployed and like many Americans, uninsured. Her life had taken a turn for the worse, or so she thought.
I was originally supposed to have cataract surgery a few years ago, however, my procedure was postponed because of a glitch with my Medicare plan. After waiting for quite some time, I received a call from Dr. Bello's office, that my insurance problem was resolved and I could proceed with cataract surgery. Dr. Bello’s office informed me that they were now offering the new Crystalens procedure and that Medicare and my secondary would pay a good portion of my surgery.
My procedure was completed according to schedule and I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful my results have been. Being an avid golfer, I can now track the ball on the course with ease. Driving has now become a pleasure again...
The WOW factor.
Yes that is the way you feel with the Crystalens®. I’m 62 and I started wearing glasses in the 6th grade. To be able to see the TV, the clock radio, and most of all to see so clearly people’s faces is phenomenal. Although I did tell someone I was surprised to see they were getting gray; maybe seeing too much can get you in trouble, guess there are some new things I need to keep to myself.
In my early twenties and thirties I tried hard contact lenses but that was too much of a bother and discomfort so I went back to glasses. But this is really something; I forget that I don’t have my glasses on and actually reach up to my eyes to take them off at night – creature of habit.
I just wanted to thank you and Dr. Bello for your understanding and thoroughness regarding my Crystalens implantation. To be honest with you, initially I thought it was a gimmick (scam) to make more money. As a retiree, I've become very defensive, especially with something as important as my vision.
At our consultation, after viewing the video narrated by Pat Summerall, I really became skeptical. I respect him as a former ballplayer and announcer in the N.F.L., but let's be realistic; he isn't doing that video for free.
