"I have just had laser cataract surgery on my left eye performed by Dr. Ho, and the result is miraculous! ... Within just a couple of hours after surgery and removing the plastic eye cover, it was like I had been transported to a bright, new colorful world. ... Vivid color just popped out, and I could see sharp detail that I had been missing for years. ... Words cannot begin to express my gratitude to Dr. Ho and his staff for restoring my eyesight and for the great work that they do at Marietta Eye Clinic! This is a life-changer for me."

"I have nothing but EXCELLENT reviews for Dr. Ho! I never knew just how bad my cataracts were until he performed my surgery on my left eye on 6/29/20. It has only been 24 hours, and I am truly amazed at how clear my vision is and that I can now see without my glasses. ... Colors are so vibrant and sharp. ... Within minutes it was all done, I couldn’t believe it! To me, Dr. Ho has been a miracle worker! I love him for restoring my vision!"
