Dr Hunter is straight forward and wont waste your time with idle chat: he's probably one of the best chances you have to fix badly messed up eye. he told me what could go wrong with the complicated surgery up front. retinal tears like i had are ugly and you want a bright, current doctor who knows his stuff. as i said, your best chance for getting fixed in the usa is here in eugene.
