“I’m in Awe of What’s Been Given to Me”

Les Prieskorn is a retired English teacher who lives half of the year in Fort Myers, Florida, and the other half in Brighton, Michigan. When his optometrist in Michigan told him it was time for cataract surgery, Les made plans to have the surgery there.

But when a Florida friend heard Les was going to have cataract surgery, he couldn’t say enough good things about Dr. Michael Collins at Collins Vision in Fort Myers. “I decided to go ahead and at least schedule a consultation with Dr. Collins,” said Les. “Well, let me tell you, I’m not sure I’ve ever had such a thorough exam. I never felt rushed, and every person there was so professional, so friendly and so reassuring. Most importantly, Dr. Collins asked me what I felt was a very important question. And that was, ‘What outcome do you want?’.”

Les thought about that question and replied that he wanted to be able to see the golf ball, no matter where he hit it! “Dr. Collins then selected a path and a lens that would coordinate with my lifestyle and fit with what is important to me,” said Les. “That really impressed me.”

My Vision is Better Than When I Was in My 40s!

Les had his refractive cataract procedure with a premium lens in December of 2020, and he couldn’t be happier with his results.

“The surgery that Dr. Collins performed for me has had a profound impact on my golf game,” said Les. “No longer can I jokingly claim, ‘I hit the ball out of sight!’ Better still, I don’t pester my playing partners with questions like, ‘Did you see where the ball ended up?’ I’m now self-reliant, and can see all my shots, both good and bad.”

“I’m not sure I had vision this good when I was in my 40s,” he added. “It’s just amazing!”

From marveling at his ability to see the design on the flags at the front of the condominium community where he lives with his wife Kathy to the brick on the buildings across the street, the tile on the rooflines, golfers playing 400 yards away and even every line in his newspaper with ease—all without glasses—is a wonder Les hasn’t yet gotten used to.

Now finished with his post-op care, Les feels so grateful his friend recommended Collins Vision to him. “Something else I really did like about my experience at Collins Vision was that it was like getting to work with the A-Team, where Dr. Collins is the quarterback. All team members know their job and do it exceptionally well. Every appointment was on time, and they respected my time. Lastly, I felt really confident knowing that Dr. Collins would be the one doing my surgery.”
