I am 67 years old and have worn glasses to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism in both eyes since I was 2 years old. My vision has never been great, even with glasses or contact lenses. For the first time in my life I can wake up in the morning and see the world without glasses. After having surgery with Dr. Kalski 3 weeks ago my vision is better than it has been my whole life. My experience with De. Kalski and his staff has been amazing. He is a kind, considerate Dr. who will walk you through every step of the procedure as well as call before and after the surgery. He is a true genius, miracle worker and compassionate man. His staff is kind, friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to answer any questions or concerns. The office visits, surgery and also surgery at the South Florida Surgery center were enjoyable experiences made even better by the fact that the final outcome was excellent vision with no glasses needed. I would like to thank everyone involved with my surgery especially Dr. Kalski, for their kindness, expertise and excellent care. I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kalski to family, friends and anyone who will listen to me sing his praises. Also a shoutout to Dr. Ricardo Silva who so wisely recommended Dr. Kalski to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Laser Cataract surgery with a multifocal lens

My cataract surgery with Dr. Kalski in early 2021 has enabled me to see long distance and read in both eyes without glasses or contacts. I was referred to Dr. Kalski because years earlier I had multiple RK and LASIK surgeries, which made both the measurement and the actual surgery more complicated. My result after surgery with Dr. Kalski for cataracts could not have been better. I feel like I have young eyes again. If you choose Dr. Kalski for your surgery, I feel confident that you will have the best possible result.  I DID!

Laser cataract surgery with a multifocal lens, (prior RK and LASIK)

I underwent cataract surgery on both eyes in April of 2021. Having my cataracts corrected with multifocal lenses has been awesome! Of course, it’s great to be able to see clearly from the time I wake up until I go to sleep – but not only that… Who knew that there were dust bunnies on my popcorn ceiling?! Who knew the leaves on the tree out back had different shades of green? I can drive without having to make U-turns since I can now read street signs in time to change lanes if I need to. Right after the surgeries, I found myself squinting at my computer monitor. Apparently that was a habit – which is no longer necessary. I also found myself forgetting to take off my sunglasses indoors – because my vision indoors with my sunglasses on now is better than it was without them before so I didn’t notice I still had them on. There has even been a spiritual component. For example the song: Say I won’t by Mercy Me begins with these words: Today it all begins, I’m seeing my life for the very first time, through a different lens.  Those words are even more meaningful spiritually now that I’ve experienced “seeing my life through a different lens” physically.  I appreciate the care and dedication of Dr. Kalski and his awesome team – especially Mary Jo and Brenda.

I had cataract surgery 1 week ago. Happy to advise my vision is clear and getting clearer every day. It’s so nice being able to see clearly when I’m driving.

The office staff is professional, accommodating and very caring.  I had several visits prior, where my eyes were terrible. Their staff made me comfortable and Dr. Kalski provided superb medical care.

Dr. Kalski explained everything during surgery step by step, which was very comforting. His medical care before, during and post surgery was professional, caring and aided my recovery exponentially.

I highly recommend Dr. Kalski and his staff. Thank you for my clear vision.

Dr. Kalski was excellent, knowledgeable and competent and concerned. He made a somewhat frightening experience easy. He wasvery attentive and genuinely cares about his patients.

Incredible! I was on the verge of disqualification for driving. Kalski and company restored my vision to 20/20. During the procedures, Dr. Kalski’s comments on progress were reassuring. No pain.

The staff is knowledgeable and courteous, patient with old guys.  Follow up was thorough.

Five stars for this outfit.

I had a great experience throughout: very thorough testing from day one to follow-up visits. Surgery day was quick and comfortable. Highly recommend. I will have my other eye done shortly.

In September, I had double cataract surgery performed by Dr. Richard Kalski. The entire process was a fabulous experience. From D. Kalski’s practice to the surgical center, I could not have asked for a better experience. The entire staff showed great empathy and efficiency throughout the entire process.  As per the results, my vision has been restored to almost perfection.  I consider this nothing short  of a miracle, given that I was almost legally blind before the process.  I recommend Dr. Kalski and his entire staff without reservation.

At first I was hesitant to have cataract surgery but now I am so very happy that I had it done by Dr. Kalski. Now I can see clearly and my driving license is now unrestricted.  The surgery went perfectly and I cannot say how pleased I am that it was done by Dr. Kalski and the follow up visits were a breeze. His office staff especially Brenda were so accommodating that it was a pleasure. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kalski and his staff to anyone considering having this procedure.

Dennis Walcott

I most certainly would recommend Dr. Kalski, in fact I already have to three patients of his!

I am thrilled to not have to wear glasses ever again.  The procedure was amazing – totally pain free, with great results.

Ann Lyons

Laser cataract surgery with a multifocal lens

It was an honor and privilege to have Dr. Kalski perform the removal of my cataracts and glaucoma last month. The procedure was stress free and his call to me on my phone the night before and night after was also very assuring and comforting.

Dr. Kalski is truly a gifted and brilliant eye surgeon and I am amazed at how I now have new vision that I never had before. Perhaps my vision was good years ago but I do not remember it being this good.

Having worked in the medical field most of my life, it is refreshing to see an eye surgeon so caring. God works through doctors who are there for the right reason. Dr. Kalski does God’s work.

Dr. Kalski did my cataract surgery no pain. No discomfort at all, the best doctor no doubt.

Juan Santana

I had cataract surgery about 6 weeks ago. I had a great experience with Dr. Kalski, and I am now seeing perfectly again in that eye. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kalski in the future, and I would use him again, if needed for the other eye.

Jeanie P. Bonner,

Laser cataract surgery with a multifocal lens (previous LASIK)

Dr. Kalski performed laser-assisted cataract surgery on both of my eyes. First eye in July and second in August.  He was extremely thorough from beginning to end …. Patiently explaining options and procedure details; ensuring a smooth surgical experience and multiple follow up exams to check progress.  Dr. Kalski demonstrated consistent kindness and caring for my well-being and was highly invested in my successful outcome.  His staff and surgical team are highly professional and caring as well.  I am thrilled with the outcome and my significantly improved vision. I would highly recommend Dr. Kalski and his staff.

Laser Cataract Surgery

Having surgery is a very frightening experience for me. However, I must say this one was a pleasant one. I have never had the doctor doing my surgery call the night before and after surgery.  That says a lot. On the day of the surgery, while waiting nervously, I spoke with some of the other patients.  They reassured me that I had nothing to worry about because Dr. Kalski was going to take good care of me. Well so he did. Words cannot explain. Thank you Dr. Kalski God bless you and your staff.

My surgery was October 24, 2019. My vision is improving daily. I can see signs much easier than before although it has been only 1 week.  I would recommend my family and friends to Dr. Kalski.

Eddye S. Gay

 Laser cataract surgery

I had a severe cataract in my right eye and had lost all vision. My optometric physician mentioned that I should contact Dr. Kalski, a Laser Specialist for an evaluation.  I made an appointment with his office on January 19, 2019. I was on time, did not have to wait, the treatment of his staff was friendly, helpful and very professional.  There was a follow up appointment to determine the procedure for the cataract surgery.  Same professional treatment.  Surgery was scheduled for Jan. 29 at South Miami Surgery center, again on time, helpful and professional treatment. Dr. Kalski called the day before the surgery (unheard of). In short today my vision has returned (both eyes the same). Dr. Kalski has a passion for his profession and therefore I can highly recommend him as your Cataract and LASIK surgery specialist.

Laser cataract surgery, right eye

Recently, I had cataract laser surgery in both eyes with Dr. Richard Kalski. From my first visit to his office, I was very impressed with the punctuality, professionalism and care of his amazing team. Dr. Kalski took the time to explain in detail all the steps before, during and after the surgery. He even called me the day before the surgery to assure me that everything was going to be fine. I went to surgery with great confidence and peace of mind. After a painless and fast procedure, it was like magic. I was immediately able to see bright colors and sharp images. It only got better and better with every day that passed.

I am very happy with the results. Thanks to you Dr. Kalski and your all-star staff members.

I had so many years debating if to do LASIK or not and I’m so glad I finally decided to do it.  Dr. Kalski was recommended to me for the procedure and I couldn’t have picked a better doctor.  Dr. Kalski and his staff were so attentive, informative and guided me every step of the way.  The procedure was literally less than 5 minutes.  I had my procedure at 11 a.m. and was already seeing everything by the afternoon.  LASIK was truly life changing and worth every bit of it, extremely happy with the results!

Dr. Kalski was highly recommended when I needed cataract surgery. From the moment I met with him at his office I was sure that he would be the best choice to perform my surgery.  I had my cataract surgery approximately one month ago. It went very well. Mu vision improved daily. Along with the cataract removal I had a multifocal lens placed in my eye. For the first time since I can remember I can go about my daily routine including driving without using glasses.  I would recommend Dr. Kalski without hesitation.

Laser Cataract surgery with multifocal

I was lucky enough to be referred to Dr. Kalsi about two months ago, by my eye doctor who has been treating me for years.  He had been insisting that I be examined by Dr. Kalski for my cataract. I went to see Dr. Kalski in November of 2018, of course I had been aware that I would need surgery.  The office staff was like a big family.  They made me feel at home. I forgot my fear as soon as I met the doctor.  I am a bit of a chicken.  I had my surgery on January 15, 2019. Dr. Kalski was very caring.  I have never had a doctor call me before and after surgery.  I would recommend him to everybody I know.  This is the first time in my life that I drive without glasses.  I am thrilled!

Teny Sharoff

Laser cataract surgery

I had my cataract surgery 3 weeks ago and could not be happier. The cataract in mu right eye had grown to the point that the vision in that eye could not be corrected to any better than 20/70. In just a few painless, stress-free minutes, Dr. Kalski removed the cataract, corrected my astigmatism and inserted a permanent lens in m right eye. The very next day I has perfect 20/20 vision! Every single staff member I encountered in Dr. Kalski’s office was extremely pleasant and proficient. He even personally called me the night before and the afternoon after my surgery to check on me. I have since recommended Dr. Kalski to many of my friends and family and I would not hesitate to see him for treatment of my other eye if ever necessary.

Joseph Klucar

Laser Cataract Surgery with a traditional lens

My mother was Dr. Kalski’s patient because she had a serious eye problem that the doctors of Bascom Palmer Institute could not diagnose after numerous visits over the course of many months. Frankly, the doctors there seemed uninterested. Eventually, we gave up on Bascom Palmer and were referred to Dr. Kalski. Within minutes of examining my mother’s eyes, Dr. Kalski was able to properly diagnose the problem. During ensuing visits through the years, I saw not only the depth of Dr. Kalski’s skill, knowledge, and expertise, but also the extreme kindness and consideration with which he treated my mother. He always listened intently and absorbed what she said, never seemed rushed, and always took whatever time was needed to fully explain any condition, or answer any questions. I knew that when the day came that I needed ophthalmic attention, Dr. Kalski would be the only choice for me. Recently, I needed cataract surgery, and I opted to also get the corrective treatment. At every step of the way, Dr. Kalski fully explained the condition, options, and expectations. The day before the procedure, Dr. Kalski himself called to ask if I had any questions or concerns. After the surgery, he again called to check on my wellbeing. I wasn’t expecting to be more impressed with him than I already was, but phone calls from the doctor himself left me even more impressed than I had already been. The caring and professional attitude of Dr. Kalski is shared by his entire office staff, and sets a refreshing tone of complete competence and good care.

Jeanie P. Bonner,

Laser cataract surgery with a multifocal lens (previous LASIK)

I cannot thank Dr. Kalski and his staff enough for making the LASIK experience an absolute pleasure.  From the first day, Dr. Kalski’s staff was welcoming, kind and patient.  Mary Jo guided me through the process every step of the way and I was very confident from the first day that the surgery would be a great success.

It was also very comforting to see how thorough Dr. Kalski was in ensuring that my eyes were eligible for LASIK.  This allowed me to trust the process because I knew, for certain, that my eyes could handle it.  I am overjoyed with the results of my LASIK procedure.  My vision is better than 20/20, and I see other facets of my life improving as a result.

I am extremely pleased and indebted to Dr. Kalski and his staff  and I would highly recommend Dr. Kalski to anyone who is considering having this procedure done.

Paul Schoenberger

Procedure LASIK

After 52 years of wearing hard contact lenses for myopia and astigmatism, I can now see without any correction for distance, just reading glasses for detail work.
The best description for Dr. Kalski, the staff an d the overall organization is professional. I highly recommend Dr. Kalski’s expertise.

Lou Valdespino

I first met Dr. Kalski over 15 years ago when he did my mother’s cataract surgery. I was very impressed with him and knew when my time came I would have him do my surgery also. He and his wonderful staff are very professional, pleasant and caring. There is no long waiting time in this office. I have worn contacts for almost 50 years and I had laser cataract surgery on both eyes and have 20/20 vision. It is amazing to see a clear and bright world each morning and to be able to drive without glasses or contact lenses. I am grateful to Dr. Kalski and I know he shares in the joy of his patients. I would recommend him to everyone.
