in Aviston, IL |
I highly recommend Dr. Akduman. I have had poor vision in my right eye my entire life and also suffer from Diabetic Retinopathy. Not only has he been able to keep me from losing my sight, but he and his team have helped me to see better than I ever have out of my right eye!! He has a steady hand and great patient care manners.
