I sought care from The Eye Clinic, was sold on Lasik surgery by the subject Dr. who proposed the procedure to me and underwent the surgery then when a problem developed shortly afterwards, I was told by the subject Dr. that I represented the 1% of his patients who develop or have problems with the procedure including notification from the Dr. that my cataract (which I was not informed of my having prior to the $3600 Lasik procedure) had grown likely due to the trauma of the procedure performed; I was then wrongly diagnosed by both the subject Dr. and the retina specialist he referred me to in Lafayette, LA whereas both Dr(s). together diagnosed me as having macular degeneration, whereby I was given steroid injections in my affected eye and was prescribed to use Restatis drops on a multiple times per day daily basis - being very dissatisfied with both the outcome of the procedures and the diagnosis by the Doctors - I sought follow-up care at Baylor College of Medicine, Dept. of Ophthalmology in Houston - wherein the Doctors that examined me determined that I DID NOT have nor do not have macular degeneration. - since then I have returned annually for check-ups wherein Baylor COM Ophthalmology and Retina specialist have continued to assess that I do not have the disease such that my suggested check-ups are every two years... I was highly disappointed with the care afforded to me as a patient of the Eye Clinic in Lake Charles, LA. I am a 58 year old male in good physical health. I will never return to the clinic.
