    I presented with sudden loss of vision in one eye and Dr. Uchiyama addressed the problem and used state of the arts care that may have saved my vision. I trust his judgment and skills and hardly recommend him.

    Doctor Eduardo Uchiyama is the most professional and personal eye doctor ever . Due to his vigilance he not only saved my eye sight he saved my life. He was the only doctor of many to find out why I was losing my sight. His precedence and knowledge found the problems I was having. I recommend him 100% if you in need of a eye doctor for diseases of the retina & uveitis. I want to thank him publically for my eye sight and my life
