I went to Doctor Iyer after being recommended to see him by my ophthalmologist. He was so professional and so thorough and helped me understand the condition from which I was challenged. He did not rush me but spent lots of time explaining my options and what was happening with my eyes. I really appreciated his professionalism. Since then I have learned so many folks I know have gone to him and feel the same way about his care. I am so grateful to Dr. Iyer and his staff.

On October 10, 2015 while fixing breakfast I went blind in my right eye. Naturally I paniced and called Dr. Iyer immediately. The blindness lasted only about 10 minutes but his office had me into see him as soon as I could get there. He soon realized that it wasn't my eye itself but quite possibly a blood clot. He contacted my vascular surgeon which resulted in a stint in my carotid artery. Dr. Iyer quick diagnosis may well have prevented a stroke later on.

Dr. Iyer is an outstanding retinal specialist. His staff is proficient and personable. On one occasion, the office was closed for a holiday, yet, when Dr. Iyer was told of my torn retina, he came in just to treat me. Not many doctors would have done that.

My husband, John suffered a detached retina diagnosed at 1600. Our Dr referred him to Dr. Iyer. Dr. Iyer and his staff waited for us to drive to Athens to receive treatment, arriving ar 1800. He explained my husband's condition and the available treatment options. John received an in office procedure that night and outpatient surgery three days later. We praise God for hearing and answering prayers, for the abilities of Dr.Iyer and John's full recovery.

He explained my problem so I understood , how he would correct and what I needed to do and expect. He was able to comfort and help me understand what to expect and what I would need to do for myself. I also wanted him to know how well his personnel is trained and how much I appreciated their help. Also his office is very pleasant , great magazines, bath rooms well equipped . Very very pleasant. My Husband is a patient of Dr. Iyer and had been for several years, we are very thankful !

Athens, GA. is fortunate to have Dr. Iyer practicing his specialty here. Excellent bedside manner, excellent staff and great at answering ALL my questions to my satisfaction-without feeling rushed. Dr. Iyer replaced my 23 year old artificial lens which had become detached and displaced. I have several clients who see Dr. Iyer on a regular basis for their conditions and all of them love him.
