Dr. Ayyala did some needed cosmetic surgery on my right eye due to a previous operation to remove a basil cell cancer. The operation left my right eye lower lid sagging and that was causing problems with my eye. Dr. Ayyala corrected that and did a fantastic job. I traveled over 400 miles to have Dr. Ayyala do this surgery and I would gladly travel a thousand miles. I highly recommend Dr. Ayyala to anyone who needs eye related surgery. And a good job to Kaylee for assisting and coordinating the appointment and all the related paper work in getting my eye defect corrected.
