Dr. Lin is a caring doctor. He is an excellent surgeon. I really appreciate everything he has done for me. As a person with progressive vision loss, Dr. Lin gave me hope that my limited vision will remain with me longer post-surgery. Thank you, Dr. Lin!

Thank you Dr. Lin for the excellent cataract surgery you performed. I have very complicated eye conditions and Dr. Lin masterfully dealt with them in my first surgery. I am confident that equal expertise will be used on my other eye. I REALLY am pleased with everything you have done to help me with my vision loss issues. Thank you!
