I have been using Dr. Richter for a number of years. Last year when I saw her I found out the reason for the eye pain I had been experiencing. I had glaucoma. I was immediately scheduled for surgery. Dr. Richter has wonderful "bedside manner' and walked me through the surgery and the recovery plan. Everything went exactly as she had told me. I would highly recommend her.
