I was in Cleveland in 2007 when my retina detached. I was fortunate to not only go directly to the Cleveland Clinic but to be treated by Dr. Kaiser. He saw me and performed emergency surgery that very day. It is now 13 years later and I have had zero issues. His care and work in repairing my retina is not only appreciated but life changing. I highly recommend him to anyone.

A retinal specialist told me that if she had my macular problem she would make an appointment to see Dr. Peter Kaiser right away. He examined my eye and recommended surgical insertion of a gas bubble to press the layers back into position. He patiently answered my questions and followed up with regular examinations to insure the eye was healing properly. I felt very safe in his hands. I highly recommend anyone having serious eye issues to make an appointment right away with Dr. Kaiser.

Dr. Kaiser is outstanding in his knowledge of retinal care and has a wonderful ability of relating this to his patients. His diagnostic skills, integrity, and compassion for his patients are beyond amazing. He took time to answer all my questions and he did it with utmost concern. I would 100% recommend this surgeon. You will be so fortunate to have him on your side. Every one of his staff members should be commended for the outstanding service they provide as well.
