Patient Comments (1)
Dallas, TX |
A retinal tear led to a retinal detachment in one of my eyes, and I lost my eyesight in it. I was referred to Dr. Matthews, and he performed an emergency vitrectomy and retinal reattachment procedure right away. Dr. Matthews restored my lost vision, and today I am doing well and full of gratitude for the sight he have back to me.
