I had to have emergency retinal surgery right before Easter. Dr. Chin Yee stayed to perform my surgery in the afternoon, even though I was not scheduled for the operating room. He did an amazing job repairing my detached retina and after 2 weeks my vision is almost back to normal! I am very grateful to Dr. Chin Yee for saving my eyesight and I would recommend him to anyone needing retinal surgery.
