Patient Comments (1)
Palo Alto, CA |
Dr. Lewis treated me for a detached retina. His first performed a pneumatic retinoplexy, which failed in that the detachment increased. A week later he performed scleral buckle surgery, and caused a hemorraghe. The retinoplexy caused the macula to be expoesed, then the failed scleral buckle surgery put blood in the vitreous and onto the macula. My sight in my right eye is permanently damaged. I have had 5 surgeries to cut muscles to straighten the eye, to remove the scleral buckle, etc.
