Dr Havens is one of the most brilliant eye doctors that I have had in my struggle with eye care. I have Macular Degeneration, and also was thought to have Glaucoma issues until Dr Havens did an extensive eye test on me, and performed a minor surgery, and now my pressures are controlled and my sight is much better than before. I still have the Macular, but will always have that, but at least it's under control.

100% Recommendation Shane is a wonderfully gifted ophthalmic surgeon and teacher. He inserted a stint into each of my wife's eyes to reduce the pressure from glaucoma. He also replace After the surgery she told me that she has never seen as clearly as she did that day. I will be scheduling a time with him as well.
