This doctor ruined my eyes with laser surgery telling me I was a good candidate which I was not as later told to me by a Duke optomologist and there is no fix. Avoid this doctor!

Dr. Perry did an excellent job on my eyes in 2012. I had PRK in one eye and Lasik in the other eye. The best money that I have ever invested.

When my doctor retired I saw Dr. Dwight D. Perry for the first time. Without any preface Dr. Perry stunned me when he said I needed cataract surgery. I started to ask how my vision could have changed in one year, Dr. Perry said, "Don't interrupt me." He continued with a rapid monologue and when I tried to ask a question again, he repeated, "Don't interrupt me." My attempt to ask a question was in a polite manner but Dr. Perry didn't want a word from a patient.

Biggest mistake I ever made was to trust this guy with my surgery, he truly doesn't care about the well being of his patients. The surgery was a disaster and I am still dealing with the consequences of his actions, unfortunately there is no recourse against him because of the documents you sign before surgery and the damage he did to my eye is too small for a lawsuit. He was late at every single appointment except for the initial consultation when he was selling me on the LASIK idea.

My friend recommended me to Dr. Perry. He did a great job on her eye surgery and mine. I would highly recommend him. I found out that he was the first doctor doing laser eye surgery in Durham...even before Duke. Go with someone who has lots of experience like him!

I have had serious complications following cataract surgery that Dr. Perry performed. He has not been able to communicate clearly about my condition. He does not appear to be empathetic.
in Durham, NC |
Was very casual with my diagnosis. I had to press him to answer questions. After saying that my right eye was worse then my left he proceeded to recommend laser on my left eye. I have lost all confidence in him.
