Wrong diagnosis. The doctor missed that the eye duct was blocked, even though I had asked him to check about it. He prescribed too strong eye drops, and as a result my eye pressure went through the roof.

I used Healthgrade to help find an eye doctor who would help me care for my eyes. It was important to have someone who spent time explaining the health of my eyes, along with the recommended prescription. Dr. Bournias and his staff were thorough and helpful throughout the visit.
