Dr. Himmel gave me sight when I was losing mine. I had Fuch's Corneal Dystrophy and he performed operations on both eyes putting in donor's corneas. They were so successful that I do not have to wear glasses for anything. In my humble estimation he is one in a million. I am a very fortunate person to have had him take care of my medical needs.
