Dr. Glaser is always pleasant and professional. He is patient answers all questions. I've been seeing him for a few years. I will be having cataract surgery soon and will reevaluate after that.
in Greenville, SC |
My husband had been to him for his surgery. I did not really know what I needed except a good eye exam. It is not what her really does but he did the exam. I learned I had dry macular degeneration, which I didn't know. I told him things seemed cloudy, and he told me I had cataracts We agreeded I would have them removed after the holidays. I have, and I am delighted. Everything is clear and bright so much so that I thought my son had had his kitchen painted.!
