Find a different Doctor!

I went in for light flashing in my left eye.Dr. Smith told me that it was nothing serious but would require surgery. He did not have the equipment necessary in his office and it would take a few days to get it in. A day later a dark shadow has appeared in the bottom of my left eye. I went back to Dr. Smith he told me it was still nothing to worry about and that we would do the surgery in a few days. The next day I lost vision completely in my left eye. This happened "after hours" and I had an emergency visit with another eye doctor to find that my retina had detached. After researching I realize this could have been prevented had Dr. Smith done the right thing and referred me to a Retinal Specialist.I have now lost a large amount of vision in my left eye. My advice is find a different doctor.
