Patient Comments (1)
in Leander, TX |
I have hereditary glaucoma that was first detected in my 50s. I was a patient before he opened the Glaucoma Institute and credit him with preserving my vision. He is conservative in his approach to treatment, which is fine with me. When medication alone was no longer sufficient, he performed trabeculectomies on both eyes and did cataract removal when that subsequently became necessary. I've always found him and his staff to be pleasant, caring and careful.
