I was sent to Dr. Rappaport with a 20/400 vision in one eye. My case is not normal, I had a blood vessel bust in the center of my retina and it filled with fluid. I have been treated in the office and am at a 20/25. I'm very thankful for the care I continue to get at Dr Rappaport's office.
I was referred to Dr. Kenneth Rappaport at Memorial Hospital/Jacksonville, FL. I went in for retinal detachment surgery, came out after 4 hours blind in the eye, no peripheral sight, an off-center eyeball, the eye is permanently small, almost closed with constant infections, profuse tearing and 24-hour redness/irritation. I have had three additional eye surgeries on the same eye in an effort to mitigate the damages, the 1st at Bascom-Palmer; all to no avail. Appalling! A nightmare of sorts!
