Dr. Popham performed 3 surgeries on my teenage daughter's eyelids. The eyelids muscles were weak and unable to work properly. The lids started out equal, but after 3 surgeries they are now a mess and one lid gets stuck. When we confronted him with or displeasure he said it could take as many as 10 surgeries to get it right and then talked down to us, as if understanding a procedure was above our understanding with blood and tissue in the way so he can't guarantee anything.
