I am blessed. I have been a patient of Dr. Galanis for many, many years. I have glaucoma. He has successfully (KNOCK ON WOOD) treated/operated on my eyes so that I wouldn't go blind. Glaucoma is ongoing and never ends. Hopefully, there will always be a procedure to ward off blindness, and that Dr. Galanis will always be the doctor to execute it. Dr. Galanis has kept up with the newest procedures and medical equipment to help all of his patients. The entire staff is super!

Both my husband and I received excellent eye care from Dr. Galanis and his staff. Their exams were very thorough, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. I received a multi-focal implant for my cataract surgery, and it is wonderful to be able to see 20-20. I can read without needing glasses; however, since my other eye had already been corrected (by another doctor) for distance vision only, I sometimes wear magnifying glasses if I do a lot of close work - like sewing.
