I can see colors and my right eye has rings around lights, vision is good. Left eye is blurry even with new lenses.

Dr. Primack is an excellent Dr. and I trust him with my bad eyes, however his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He doesn't take the time to really talk with you and his answers are very short. You just get the feeling that he's so focused on your eyes that he could do without the rest of you. In other words, just let him do his work and get on with it.

I have keratoconeus and had a cornea transplant in January of this year 2016. Before the transplant my vision in my right eye was 20/400, which is considered legally blind. After the transplant has healed I have just completed my cataract surgery and now my vision is 20/30! I am estactic! My eyesight came back fully the day before my 56 birthday and Dr. Primack was fabulous!
Reading, PA |
I had cataracts removed and, after returning several times to complain about discomfort, was told that it Just takes time to heal. Dr. Primack was arrogant and disregarded my concerns. When my eyes were no better, I went to a new dr. who immediately drained my eyelids that were infected and I was put on a regiment of antibiotics and compresses. I found immediate relief. I am upset that Dr Primack refused to admit that there was any problem.
