I began wearing glasses when I was 40. I started with readers, then eventually both my distance and close-up needed help, a lot of help. So progressives were pretty much my only choice. Progressive glasses were not only very expensive, but my glasses in general were a nuisance when hiking, going the beach, or pretty much during any physical activity. I just wanted to be free from them. I had never considered LASIK since I could not even put eye drops in my eyes without anxiety. LOL. Well, long story short I took the plunge. I met with Dr. Larson and her team ( and called many times for information), and decided I was doing it. The medications they provide helped with the anxiety , the surgery was painless, and best of all I CAN SEE. Dr. Larson's staff is very professional, yet down to earth, caring, and informative. I would highly recommend this surgery and Vermont Eye Laser in a heart beat.Corinne Clowes
I was extremely pleased with each step of the way involving my cataract surgery. I was pleasantly surprised that both my initial appointment and most of the follow-ups were located right in Plattsburgh.
Dr. Larson was so kind, answered all my questions and got me in for surgery so quickly. Even though I had low anxiety- she would be the perfect person for someone who feels a little anxious because she was so gentle and kind.
I was scared the first time, because of the unknown, but the second eye was a breeze. It was so organized.
After experiencing cataract surgery in both eyes, I highly recommend Dr. Noah Saipe, MD and his entire staff. Totally warm, kind, and thorough interviews, examinations, surgery with detailed home care instructions. Although I struggle with anxiety and sensitivity to medications, especially anesthesia, Dr. Saipe and his team listened to my needs and took really great care of me. My vision is now better than 20/20! Got cataracts? Don't hesitate at all to call on Dr. Saipe, his anesthesiologist, his wonderful nurses and staff for your care. I'm really happy I did.
