Patient Comments (1)
El Cajon, CA |
I think Dr. Crystal needs to retire. I went to see a specialist because my eyes where out of focus and I was having excessive mucus in my eyes. He came in at the end of the appointment, for 5 minutes at the most. He wrote a prescription and when I asked him if I needed new glasses , he said if you want. He never said what was or might be causing the mucus nor did he say anything about the cataracts that other optometrists had told me I was developing. I did get new glasses but they didn't help
