I've been using him for the past 10 years. He saved my left eye when I had a detached retina covering half my eye. Since then he used a laser on my other eye for prevention. I have dry eyes and mild cataracts in both eyes. Another doctor wanted to do surgery but Dr. Ganiban said they weren't that...more

Dr. Ganiban did a great job for me. I was quite worried about what could have been a very serious eye issue. Dr. Ganiban gave me a thorough examination and an even better explanation. When he was done my mind was put at ease. I trust Dr. Ganiban and think that he's an excellent Retina Doctor.
