Appointment began on time. Check up for vision and pictures, done professionally Preview with Dr. MacCumber's assistant..very professional, informative and exact Visit with Dr. MacCumber....very satisfactory....because I have been losing natural tears in my left eye, he recommended that I see Dr. Cohen to check my lid which seems to be pushing my tears out, thus making my eye dry and lessening my vision. The scheduler made an appointment with Dr. Cohen for me for May 4k 2021 at 10:30. In addition, Dr. MacCumber recommended that I begin to us REFRESH GEL DROPS which I have begun to use.
