If it wasn't for Dr Stone I would be blind in my right eye. He not only got my sight back once but twice. When it comes to your eyes Please go to Dr Stone. His knowledge and his experience can't be beat.

Dr. Stone treated me with macular degeneration. His immediate recognition and treatment prevented widespread vision loss. He set up a program that has maintained my level of vision. My quality of life has not declined as a result. I might also add that it was a very frightening time for me, and...more

Excellent!! I needed emergency surgery for retinal repair and Dr Stone did it that night because he was going out of town the next day. He always explains things clearly and takes as much time as possible but he is extremely in high demand. I feel very fortunate that he is here in my locale.
