My husband had gone to Dr. Hayes for years with diabetic eye problems. He was my first call when I had a problem. He sits in front of you, and LISTENS. I told him I felt like I had a dirty contact in both eyes. I only wear one left lens. He told me I have "eyelash dandruff" and an easy way to control it. It's not curable. Following his instruction, I had it under control in about 2 weeks. He's very personable, and has a natural way of showing an intense interest in your eye health.

Dr. Hayes confirmed having open angle glaucoma and recommended Latanoprost then Lumigan to lower IOP. Unfortunately, both eye drops did not lower my eye pressure and caused undesirable side effects. On my last appointment, I opted for Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT). Given the success rate of SLT in the country is 80% and the positive effect may last between two to five years, I expect positive outcome. I will keep you posted on the outcome of SLT in the months and years ahead.

My husband and I are very happy to entrust our care to Dr Hayes. We were looking for an expert in glaucoma and the treatment is slowing the progression as much as possible. We also like the Navy connection as we are a military family.

I went to see Dr. Hayes because my Optometrist referred me to Clay Eye Physicians for Glaucoma in my right eye. Dr. Hayes took immediate steps to remedy my problem. I also had cataracts so he recommended surgery and that procedure allowed him to correct the glaucoma at the same time. For the first time in my life, I can see unaided. I was very afraid, but he is the most kind, caring and professional doctor I have ever had in my life. I recommend him to everyone with eye problems.

Down to earth Dr. Took his time to thoroughly explain the upcoming procedure. He followed up with a personal phone call the evening of the surgery to see how I was doing. Looking forward to my next surgery he will preform. New vision is great.
