I'm 79 years old with several health issues, including cataracts in one eye. This was affecting my daily live, reading, driving, golf. I decided to have surgery performed by Dr. Nelligan. Ten days after my sight was 20/20 (or better). Thank you so much doctor, you are a fine person and a great physician. I also want t thank and recommend the Eye Care Center of St Augustine FL, an outstanding organization. Alfredo F. Lamas St. Augustine FL
