I am astounded, there are not enough word to describe how pleased I am with the difference after surgery. The resolution and brightness one day after surgery is unbelievable. I would describe the difference as an old automobile – replacing the old headlights, with new modern LED headlights. My vision is whiter, brighter & astoundingly sharper.

I wore glasses since I was 9 years, then wore cataract lenses – OH MY GOSH! I am reading + seeing distance, it is so amazing to me, It’s so great! Going from being half blind & finally being able to have this done is such a miracle to me. I didn’t want anyone else to do it!!


Dr. Frenkel performed cataract surgery for me on both eyes – its been LIFE CHANGING! His compassion, expertise, care and dedication to ensuring the best outcomes are visible through his actions of listening, answering ALL my questions and PERSONALLY calling me at home the evening after my surgery to check on how I’m doing (WOW!). Dr. Frenkel is my SUPERHERO – I can now go back to being a confident driver, my hobbies of painting and birdwatching – AMAZING.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the result of my cataract surgery! I also had a complete correction of my myopia and astigmatism done at the same time. Before I came to Dr. Frenkel. I heard he was an amazingly knowledgeable doctor, and now I can tell he exceeded my expectations by far! My vision now is perfect. I recommend Dr. Frenkel to anyone who’s looking for a top ophthalmologist.

I had no idea what I was in for regarding to cataract surgery. I do know that I was very apprehensive. I shouldn’t have been. One day post Op – 20/20 vision! No discomfort at all. Dr. Frenkel is extremely capable and competent.

Since cataract surgery, I have the clearest vision of my life. I started wearing glasses at age 7 so I never had really clear vision. It’s great to see clearly!

— A. Lopez, EFEI patient

Dear Dr. Frenkel, I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me back my life. You gave me back the ability to do all my normal day activities: driving, reading signs, watching TV, and so much more. My low vision was effecting me both physically and mentally. The stress of not really seeing things is gone and I feel and see great! It’s unbelievable that you took my eye with astigmatism, and a bad cataract and gave me 20/20 near and far. I could not be happier. I’m so thrilled there are such talented and caring people in the world like you! Thank you!

Dr. Ronald Frenkel performed cataract surgery on both my eyes in the last month. Excellent results. Very professional. I would advise anyone with any vision problems to see this doctor. His experience is very comforting.

Dr. Frenkel performed both glaucoma and cataract on both of my eyes. The outcome was absolutely fantastic. My vision was restored to 20/20 and I can now appreciate the true colors of the world. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Frenkel and the Pan Optix lenses.
