Dr. Charles D Francis has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Dr. Francis performed surgery on my eyes, 3 years ago, this past February. I have had nothing but blurry vision, since that time. When I complained to him, about my vision after his surgery, he told me it was in my head. He became very arrogant with me, telling me that I was intimimaditing him, so I went to the Cleveland Clinic for help. Dr. Francis is a horrible surgeon who has just about blinded me and his license needs revoked. I am still suffering with his botched surgery on my eyes. I have been to four other doctors, for help. I am still under a doctors care, because of mess that Dr. Francis has caused to my eyes. He is a terrible doctor and I would not recommend him to anyone.
