Dr. Vygantas took care of me originally in 1990. A detached retina to my left eye forced me to have emergency surgery. I have seen him regularly ever since. He corrected/repaired my retina. Although I lost some vision, I still see fairly well and did not loose my sight. Dr. Vygantas is easy to talk to and has the best "bed side" manner. He has a very calming effect when I am nervous, worried or upset about my eye situations.
