I contacted Cleveland Clinic for a second opinion and I was referred to Dr. Cannatti regarding vision complications / loss following surgery performed by another Provider. Dr. Cannatti is very knowledgeable, experienced, professional, compassionate, and caring as is his staff. My initial appointment was several hours, and was the most thorough eye exam I've ever had. He took the time to explain what was going on and what could be done to improve my vision. Under his care my vision has improved.
