Read What Our Cataract Patients Have to Say About Our Care:


After discovering that the doctor who was scheduled to do my cataract surgery was ending their practice I was referred to Dr. Simon. I was a little apprehensive as I’d never met him before and my surgery was scheduled in 2 weeks. Things do happen for a reason. Dr. Simon was professional, offering me options the first doctor had not, kind, and understanding. He called me at home after both surgeries to ensure I was doing okay. And the best part . . . I opted for toric lenses which correct astigmatism and they work! The world is much brighter now, and I can buy off-the-shelf sunglasses! I would definitely refer my family and friends to Dr. Simon.

Dr. Simon operated on both eyes in Mar. of ’11; both successful, without complications and restored my vision to 20/20.  In addition to his medical expertise, this doctor communicates easily, frequently, and clearly, and calls following each operation.  Additionally, his staff is friendly and courteous. His facilities are neat, clean and comfortable. He uses the NC Specialty Hospital which I found to be excellent as well.  Having my share of experience with doctors both locally and nationally, I can rate Dr. Simon as one of the most expert, accessible and agreeable and would (and will) recommend him, without qualification, to friends and relatives.
