I have keratoconis and he is one of the few and best specialists in this area in Illinois. He did cross-linking with me and was amazingly helpful. I was just told he left his practice at Mercy and am devastated. In my experience, there is a big difference between a doctor who treats cornea disease and a doctor who specializes in keratoconis. You want a Dr. Epstein if you have this vision problem; not someone who will rush you into a cornea transplant.
