    After 8 visits Dr. Spector recommended cataract surgery, but completely missed the fact that I had "advanced" Glaucoma. I discovered that when I consulted another doctor for an assessment before proceeding with cataract surgery. This other doctor asked if I had ever been told that I have Glaucoma: "NO". It was so advanced that I had lost a great deal of peripheral vision, which could not be reversed. It was too advanced to treat chemically and necessitated surgery to stop its advance.
