"The correction of my vision has opened a whole new world for me. I'm able to see small details like the time on my alarm clock, a pin on the floor and the petals of flowers. Dr. Kurstin and his staff of medical professionals have made my vision correction dreams come true." Janet Abbas, ReZoom IOLs patient
"I was one of those individuals who had given up any chance of ever going without glasses. I was miserable on rainy days and frustrated every time I got out of my air conditioned car due to my fogged glasses. But now I don't have to deal with these problems any longer, and my eyesight is as good as it was when I was younger. My ReZoom procedure was simple, painless and extremely quick...I am going swimming today and I won't be wearing glasses for the first time in years! I have no regrets and no reservations about recommending anyone to the Laser Eye Center of Miami."
