“Prior to my medical treatment at Chippewa Valley Eye Clinic, I had been experiencing severe problems with allergies. During this time, I also began to notice a grayish/blackish blob in my vision. I had associated this abnormality to my allergies. However, in a relatively short period of time, these symptoms began to impair my normal routine activities, including my ability to drive. At this point, I decided to schedule an appointment to see Dr. Dow.”
“Dr. Dow treated me as if he had known me for 100 years, and his assistants, Roxy and Linda, were wonderful…they work very well together. What I had attributed to allergies was otherwise diagnosed to be that of a fast growing cataract. Because the view was poor to the back of the eye, Dr. Dow scheduled my surgery promptly for my right eye.”
“A few weeks later, cataract surgery was scheduled for my left eye as well. However, during this time, new symptoms with my eyes began to develop. Dr. Dow noticed some bleeding behind my retina. I was promptly scheduled to see Dr. Lange who performed laser surgery the next day. He told me that no guarantees could be made but laser would be done to preserve my vision and try to keep it from worsening. Fortunately, the surgery was quite successful and my vision improved. I appreciate Dr. Lange’s prompt response to my condition as well as his assistant, Shirley, and their kindness throughout my visit. Currently, I am able to see quite well at a distance…just a slight correction is needed for reading.”
“In many doctors’ offices, you feel as though you are just a number, but not at Chippewa Valley Eye Clinic. From the receptionists, to the assistants, to the doctors, everyone there is kind and caring to their patients.” - A.G.
"Facing cataract surgery, I was glad to learn of the CrystaLens IOL which promised to give good results for near, intermediate, and far distance vision without glasses. Just a few weeks after surgery, I am reading the newspaper, reading music, and driving without glasses. I am excited to know my vision will continue to improve over the next few months." - N.L.
“I had cataract surgery with Dr. Lange 2 years ago. Prior to my surgery, I had been experiencing such extremely nearsighted vision that Dr. Lange felt that he could no longer correct with glasses.”
“When Dr. Lange’s nurse removed my eye patch after surgery, it was a miracle; the first time I could see without glasses since the first grade.”
“I would recommend Dr. Lange for a surgeon.” - S.E.
“I am so thankful to Dr. Dow and his staff for the success of my eye surgery. My eyes were so bad I could not read the newspaper, faxes, or emails. Overall, I experienced difficulty taking care of my business and my staff had to read everything to me.
In terms of recreation, I continued to play golf but could not see where the ball went. I was totally dependant on my friends to watch the ball for me. It made the game a lot less fun as I could not appreciate a good shot.
Since I had the CrystaLens implant surgery, it is like a new world again. I can function normally and really enjoy my golf.” - S.H.
“Due to my diabetic condition, I had experienced significant vision loss and was referred to Dr. Lange for treatment. He performed both cataract surgery and laser surgery to repair blood vessels. He restored my eyesight and I am very pleased with the results.”
“Of course, with age and diabetes my vision is continually deteriorating but Dr. Lange gave me some great years. He is a fine physician.” - T.P.
