Cataract Testimonials

“For my 65th birthday, I asked Dr. Harry Koster to replace the lenses in both my eyes with multifocal lenses. I had gotten to 4.0 strength reading glasses, and the world was a big blur to me. Dr. Koster and his staff are very smart and very friendly. The surgery takes 15 minutes or less and is completely painless. Four hours after the procedure, I could read without glasses, and I can now easily read the bottom line on the eye chart. My world is brighter, more colorful, and full of detail I haven’t seen in decades. Dr. Koster is so adept a surgeon that the staff at both the office and the surgery speak of him in hushed tones as “The Hands.” This was a life-changing experience for me, truly a gift beyond price (and the price was very reasonable!).”

NY Vision Center, Harry Koster, MD

“If you are looking for the best possible vision care for you and your family, you found it! Everything you need from routine eye care, surgical care, cataract removal, Lasik surgery and more, it’s all available at the NY Vision Center.

Dr. Koster, his associates and staff are welcoming, polite and efficient. They have all the latest technology that one would expect of a first-class vision center but so much more: experience, knowledge, technical skills, compassion and excellent vision care. Sherri, nurse and surgical coordinator, will take you through all the steps and provides written instructions, clearly outlining the details of whatever procedures are scheduled. Questions are patiently addressed and the goal is to excel. She treats you more like family and she really helped me through the process and when she says, “call anytime”, she means it.

Now, for my story. I’m a 70-year-old retired medical manager, so I am always looking at an office from an insider’s perspective and from my observations, they are one of the more professional offices that I’ve seen and Dr. Koster lives up to his stellar reputation. Dr. Koster is self-assured with a comforting, manner and even though he is very busy, he addresses his staff with respect and he truly wants the best outcome for his patients.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Koster’s for a little over a year. In that time, I have gone from wearing glasses and having cataracts to having optimal vision and no longer need to wear glasses. My cataracts were removed from both eyes with my choice of multifocal lenses. He truly wants the best possible results for his patients and guarantees it. I recommend Dr. Koster and his associates whole heartedly!”

“Dr. Koster,

I placed complete confidence in you when I decided to have you perform my cataract surgery. I am very pleased with the results. You performed this surgery with such skill and precision my cornea transplant was not affected, and in the process my astigmatism was corrected. Thank you Dr. Koster.”

“It has been a decade since my procedure and the result is still the same…perfect”. Without question the best thing I have ever done to TREAT myself. Dr. Koster and his staff made the entire event easy and painless. I could not be happier and would do it all over again tomorrow.”

Dear Dr. Koster,

“The best thing that happened to me in 2016 was my referral from Dr. Maddona at the University Eye Center to your office. In late May and early June you implanted in me multifocal lens in either eye and inserted stents to control my intraocular pressure. Thanks to your skills and your kindness, I now at, the age of 79, see with the clarity I enjoyed when I was 35. No reading glasses, no magnifying glasses, no driving glasses. This is a miracle and you are a miracle worker. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for what you have done for me!”

Yours warmly, John Githens

“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my feelings on the fine work Dr. Harry Koster does with regard to eye surgery. It was May and June of 2006 when Dr. Harry Koster performed my implant surgery in my eyes. I was hesitant at first, but then I finally agreed to do the surgery. Dr. Koster is a miracle worker! I have 20/20 vision now and haven’t had any residuals in the four years since the surgery. It’s so amazing. If I didn’t know I had the surgical implants, I would never believe that such a surgery is possible! Not only is Dr. Koster a very skilled surgeon but he is also a very caring and gentle man. I can’t say enough about him and his practice.”

Best regards,

Mary Serkanic
