Dr. Ilyas is the only one I trust something so precious as my eyes with! I have every confidence in him concerning treatment plans and long term goals. He is so personable and takes time to explain in depth, the diagnosis, options, and course of treatment best suited for me. My treatments involve injections in my eye...Dr. Ilyas is the only one I will allow to do it. With him doing it, its quick and painless. Easy peasy!
He was knowledgeable and detailed in explaining to me my problem of a macular hole. He and his office staff made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Surgery to fix my macular hole went very well. It is so nice to see in the center part of my vision again! Great retina surgeon and I highly recommend him.
