Very negative experience with Dr. Chang. He told me that I had glaucoma & I could lose my eye sight any time. Plain as that! Plus, never let anyone dilate my eyes. I have a new ophthalmologist with a lot more empathy who has proven Dr. Chang wrong anyway. He was asked, but never forwarded my records to my new doctor... Hmmmmm. The worst experience I have ever had with a doctor in my life ---- and I am 60 years old. I've had my eyes dilated several times since this guy said not to. Don't go

I had a cataract surgery with Dr. Chang a few years ago and have been in his care for quite some time now. I have been treated well at all times, he has been very friendly and takes time to explain any procedures.
