DMEK surgery on both eyes, January and May, transformed me from someone struggling to maintain reasonable productivity and self reliance because of fading vision to a man seeing the world as he did when 20 years old. I am very thankful to the Good Lord, to Dr. Bains and staff, and the the donor families. Both surgeries were quite effective, essentially pain-free, and exactly as described in advance. Thank you, Dr. Bains! And, thanks to my hometown opthalmologist who recommended you!
Dr Baines was very kind, thorough, and accommodating in her care. Had an excellent experience and will enjoy continuing to follow with her.

The best thing my former ophthalmologist did was refer me to Dr Bains! None of his treatments gave me relief. I was having dreadful problems with my eyes - gritty, inflamed. I was unable to read or use a computer for extended periods and becoming depressed. Ten minutes into a consultation, Dr. Bains diagnosed my condition. What she has prescribed has improved my eye health immensely! She is an Ophthalmologist with a capital O and has a genuine concern for her patients.
