Great experience. Had some unexpected issues related to my healing from cataract surgery. We have been working through them and my sight has been improving. Careful explanations along the way. Great office support too. There is a reason people who see doctors are called, "patients". Be patient.

I had a blepharoplasty done by Dr. Pizio on January 17th of this year. I followed her post-surgery instructions explicitly. She removed the stitches on February 3 and said I was doing fine and the redness and pain would go away. Two days later, I was at Cleveland Clinic for other issues and noticed that the vision in my right eye was significantly worse. The eye doctors at Cole Eye Clinic there in Cleveland told me there were alarmingly dry spots on my eyes and noted that both eyes would not close completely, thereby drying them out. They installed plugs to increase tearing, along with eye drop prescriptions. Today, four months later, my eyes are still red and painful and my vision varies from day to day even though I use eye drops 5-6 times a day. I very much regret this surgery and find it hard to believe that Dr. Pizio performed this surgery herself.
