Patient Comments (1)
in Gettysburg, PA |
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Sivendran because a small amount of silicone oil had leaked into the front portion of my right eye. (The silicone oil was placed in the eye over 20 years ago as part of detached retina repair surgery.) Dr. Sivendran and the staff were friendly and saw me right away. After dilating my eye, and holding my head down, the silicone oil returned to inside my eye where it belonged. This condition was rare. Dr. Sivendran knew how to treat it successfully.
