"I want to start out with thanking Dr. Omar Krad. I feel like a new person after having cataract surgery. I even cried after because I am now able to see a lot better and clear. I've been very happy with the results, I definitely recommend this doctor. Thank you for giving my vision and my life back."
"Dr. Krad is an amazing doctor, surgeon, human being. He's very knowledgeable, caring, professional, a great teacher and listener, I never felt rushed. I recently had cataract surgery performed by him on both of my eyes. I couldn't be more pleased! It's incredible the difference it has made! Everything is so much brighter! I saw Dr. Krad at his Mission Viejo office; Vani, Lizzy and Eddie are great members of his staff."
"Dr. Krad performed lens replacement surgery on both eyes at separate times. I do not have cataracts, just terrible vision. He inserted new trifocal lenses. He was so great every step of the way, from my first appt to the last. He is very kind, with great bedside manner. I now have 20/20 vision with no side effects. All in all, a life changing experience!!!"
