“The statements expressed below do not represent everyone’s individual results from their eye procedure because results vary for each person. What may be considered painless or satisfying to one person may be considered differently by another individual. A thorough informational discussion with your ophthalmologist about your eye condition and different options available and realistic expectations from the elected procedure is a very important step in deciding to undergo any treatment or procedure. By conducting an eye exam, the eye care professionals at Eye MD Monterey can best inform you and answer your questions about your eye condition.”
I would like to take a moment to express my appreciation for the sensitive, helpful and professional services you’ve provided for Louise and me. Today it seems that every aspect of medical care causes apprehension and distress, especially when we don’t fully know what to expect. Your friendly care and treatment was a welcome change from the ordinary. We have never felt more at ease and well cared for at any other provider, not just vision care.
Your thoughtful and caring approach is exceptional and deserves a word of gratitude. You’ve taken an otherwise unpleasant but necessary experience and made it relaxed, friendly and comfortable. We look forward to a long and rewarding relationship.

Thank you, Dr. Penrose. Cataract surgery was miraculous for me and has greatly improved my quality of life. The procedure is simple, recovery is fast and the results are amazing – all coupled with a very professional and caring staff.
Again, thank you.

Dear Dr. Penrose,
As I told you during our initial conversation, of the three ophthalmologists referred to me, I chose you since your availability matched my schedule. After the surgery and recovery I can say, based on my previous surgery on the other eye that I experienced less discomfort and faster recovery after this operation. I also appreciated your follow-up and concern that all was well. I would appreciate you accepting me as a patient, and seeing me on annual basis to check on my eye condition.
Thank you again for your caring, professional treatment.

Dear Dr. Penrose:
Thank you for the gift of eyesight again. I can see like I did when I was a kid! The cataract replacement procedure was so quick and painless, that it was over before I knew it.
Many thanks also to your very caring and professional staff – both office and surgical – for their great “bedside manner.’ I felt that I was in the hands of a skilled and compassionate team; explaining every procedure and maintaining a reassuring and cheerful attitude.
After just a few days, I am able to see with new eyes!! Color has come back amazingly – didn’t realize how clouded and “smogged” my vision was. Now I can see perfect detail – the result is a fantastic improvement.
Many thanks to you all and Hooray for modern medicine!

Yesenia at [the] optical on Cass in Monterey, CA, was so very professional and put me at ease the very first appointment. I will recommend her and Dr. Penrose to my friends needing a very caring and informed eye professional.

Dr. Penrose, I am writing to let you know how much I appreciate your work as my doctor. I recall my reluctance when I was sent to you on a Sunday afternoon by CHOMP emergency for a retina complication. At the time, I had not met you, and what kind of doctor sees an unknown patient on a Sunday afternoon? Since then, you have done some miracle work for my eyesight.
The cataract surgery has given me renewed confidence and vision. Prior to the surgery, I had a pair of glasses for reading, a pair for driving and a pair for computer work (my profession). I no longer use any of these. This letter was delayed in part by our six-week RV trip, which went very well. I did not need glasses for reading or driving as long as the light permitted. What a way to go for someone who felt their eyesight was being compromised, if not in jeopardy of being lost. Anyway, thank you for being there.

Thank you for the opportunity to say how very pleased I am with ReStor lenses. Thankfully, my ophthalmologist, Dr. Philip Penrose, recommended them for me when I needed cataract surgery about ten years ago. Upon arriving home after surgery, I can still recall my exhilaration to be able to see so very much better than with glasses…close-up and at a distance!! I was truly amazed! Every day I am thankful for good eye sight and for the Doctor who made this possible. I have no regrets, even though there was some out-of-pocket expense because Medicare did not cover these lenses. I’ve worn glasses since a child; then contacts for many years; then glasses again. ReStor lenses have given me the BEST vision ever. If your ophthalogist recommends ReStor lenses for you: Go for it!
