Dr Awad is exceptionally competent. He has now conducted surgery on my eyes 3 times....many many years ago for caretconus (sp?) and I just had my 2nd cataract surgery. My distance vision is now better than it was when I was in college and for the first time I am traveling without lugging all my contact lens paraphernalia!!!! I feel light as a bird! I still need reading glasses -- but for me that is a minor accommodation.
