For more than seventy years, Margaret Seagraves has made beautiful music on her piano. Margaret began playing at the age of five, but in recent years, her ability to read the music became increasingly difficult. She eventually needed special glasses for this task.
Margaret had worn glasses since childhood, and as an adult transitioned into bifocals to help correct her vision. “I had difficulty reading books, signs, and was losing my night vision,” she explains. When her vision progressively worsened, Margaret’s children suggested she visit Drs. Campbell, Cunningham, Taylor, and Haun.
“Everybody was friendly and knowledgeable,” Margaret recalls. To me, it was important that I saw my doctor, and at Drs. Campbell, Cunningham, Taylor, and Haun, they didn’t pass me off to someone I didn’t know. I always saw who I was scheduled to see. That’s important as you get older.” Margaret elected to have the Crystalens procedure, which she describes as “pesky, but not painful.” She explains, “I was well prepared by
the staff to know what to expect, and I haven’t had any problems. Now I can read signs, work puzzles, read my music, and drive at night with no problem.”
“I have a whole lot of things I like to do, and I want to be able to see to do them,” Margaret states. “I now have good vision and good hearing. A lot of other things may be worn out, but I can still hear and now I can still see.” It seems that this spunky senior with superb sight will continue to make beautiful music.
