I found Dr. Kessler to be an experienced Doctor who gave a thorough exam and answered all my questions
Dr. Kessler failed to explain that my eyes would be dialated at this visit. He failed to even inform me that he was doing so before or during. I have been seeing eye professionals for 24 years and have never had this happen to me before.
