Dr. Butler is a very caring, professional who has been my doctor for 10 years. He has put a valve in my eye to help my eye pressure, plus removed cataracts in both eyes. For several years I had appointments with him almost every month to keep my eye pressure readings current with what needed to be done to help me with my vision. I cannot thank him enough for everything that he has done for me, plus my wife is very positive about everything that he has done for us while in surgeries, too.
