Patient Comments (1)
in Cumberland, RI |
After being told I was pre-diabetic because of problems with my contacts. I went to Dr Ducharme who told me right at the first glance under the scope that I had overworn my contacts and needed to stop. The other doctor told me he couldn't do anything for me and continued to let me wear the lenses.
