When I first went to see Dr. Vaishnav I was losing my eye sight from diabetes. After my eye exam he told me he was going to try and help me gain back my eye sight. It has been over a year and I have regain most of my eye sight back, I am still being treated, but it gets better after every treatment. If it was not for him , I don't know if I would be able to see now. He is a great doctor.
