Patient Comments (1)
Chicago |
Dr Rao performed cateract surgery on me a few years ago. He put two different types of lenses in each eye - neither were the correct application. I also have found that the lens in the left eye is not correctly centered on the eye. My vision is slowly getting worse and is not correctable and I have pain that has lead to headaches. At my last appt he said " you have dry eye"
