Patient Comments (1)
Washington |
Eye sight was not what I expected. Needed glasses to see both close up, which I expected, and for distance. Took them more than 3 weeks to send for my glasses, which made work very difficult. My eyes are generally red and watering all day and it's been 2 months since surgery. Stents were put in to reduce eye pressure, have not started working yet, been about 2 months since surgery. Now I am on 2 different drops. I was hoping for better results. Would not recommend. Staff was very nice.
