When a cataract surgeon must choose a cataract surgeon to operate on his
own eyes, it is a difficult and careful decision. Among the cataract surgeons in
South Florida, there are quite a few who possess excellent clinical judgment
and have excellent
surgical skills. From this elite group, I chose Nelson
Preschel, M.D. to remove cataracts from both of my eyes. His attention to
detail was impressive, my post
operative course was smooth, and my surgical
outcome is remarkably good. I can recommend Nelson
Preschel, M.D. as a
cataract surgeon without reservation.

I continue to recommend Dr. Preschel to my friends and
