Dr. Brame made me feel very comfortable from “Day One.” She helped me assess my situation with both eyes.


While my right eye was beyond repair, she believed she could repair my left eye which was plagued by maturing cataracts. She assured me that doing so would increase my quality of life.


Thanks to Dr. Brame’s, I had a successful surgery, and my eyesight is much better. I can actually see quite a bit without glasses.
