Dr. Peters is an excellent ophthamologist. A very particular MD in all areas of your care. He has treated me for over 10 years for glaucoma, and removed a cataract. He was very reassuring, as I have vision in one eye only. He removed the cataract, placed an IOL, and my vision was very close to 20/20. He has helped me through very stressful episodes of Optic neuropathy, along with Dr. Legge. He is very calm and personally cares about me. He has called personally to see how I was doing.

Dr Peters is a perfectionist and conservative in his care approach. I was begging for cataract surgery long before he thought it was time. The nurses in the surgical center he uses was extremely complimentary of him and his ability; I could tell he was well respected.
