Ratings and Reviews
It’s a “must have” - puts your mind as ease!
I highly recommend that patients use the Sharp Health Companion app! I have this app on my iPhone and it also sends me reminders through my Apple Watch! Dr. Korn and staff were very helpful and installed the app for me, explained how it’s used and encouraged me and my husband to use it. It is useful for patients and their care givers because it provides daily reminders of pre and post surgery care. There are videos available that answered any questions or concerns that I had. The app provides reminders of what you need to do to prepare for the surgery (like setting doctor appointments, picking up prescriptions, etc), what’s needed to bring the day of the procedure and post-surgery daily tasks (eye drops, eye exercises, pain tolerance). The tasks are tracked and summarized in a report that you send to Dr. Korn through the app. Very easy! Dr. Korn reviewed my report and replied to my email within 24 hours. Dr. Korn and staff treat their patients like family and the Sharp Health Companion adds a higher level of outstanding service!
Using with 2nd cataract surgery. I used paper notes and calendar entries with my first surgery (app wasn’t available then) and now using app solely to keep me on track with the eye drop regimen (using the notifications in the phone’s settings is the best method). My Doctor, the Tech and the Scheduler are are listed in the App and I can email them for routine questions, and the Doctor’s phone number is there too (just click on the number and it dials using the phone’s app) for an emergency or when something doesn’t seem right during the healing process. There’s helper videos too in case you don’t remember something or as in my case I needed a tip how to aim better with the eye drops. The app does not replace a phone call or visit, rather it organizes my tasks related to eye surgery and care during the healing process afterwards.
Eye surgery success
I had no idea colors could be so bright and vivid! For years I thought my inability to see smaller and smaller print was the greatest damage resulting from the cataracts growing over my eyes. I was looking at the world through Sepia colored ( yellow-brown ) filters, and I didn’t know it.
Have you ever seen “electric-blue”?, “Dazzling White”?, Neon Green, and Red. I had slowly forgotten how deeply beautiful colors really are.
The surgery procedure was much easier than I had anticipated. The procedure was to remove a cataract and implant a new lens into my right eye. I felt care and concern from every member of the surgical team, and had no fear.
The procedure was fast yet thorough, placing me into recovery where I could use my repaired eye for the first time only minutes after surgery completed.
Now, I can hardly wait to have my second eye repaired to match the first.
My deepest thanks goes out to Dr Korn and the entire team.
Thank you so very much.
