I had cataract surgery (multifocal lens in one eye) through Kaiser and although the surgery was successful, I was experiencing extreme visual imbalance that was negatively impacting my life. Kaiser asked me to wait it out (3 months!), but I was truly going out of my mind so, based on the great things I’d heard, I scheduled a consult with Dr. Benjamin. Never did I expect to leave his office with GREATLY improved vision, but that’s exactly what happened. Dr. Benjamin spent a generous amount of time with me, clearly explaining why I was experiencing the visual disparity. He assured me it could be corrected by treating the other eye, a surgery Kaiser wishes to postpone. In the meantime, he had a brilliant idea. He suggested that a non-prescription colored contact lens (!?) might improve the refractive imbalance so we gave it a try. It was a stroke of genius! My vision imbalance improved instantly. He suggested that I be fitted for a multifocal contact at my next optometry appointment with the hope that it might give me even greater relief until the next lens replacement surgery. Absolute home run. I could not have been happier with this consultation. I found Dr. Benjamin to be a wonderful, caring and an extremely good communicator. I will still need that second surgery, but at least I can function until then, thanks to Dr. Benjamin.
