I've had about 5 surgeries in one eye for detached retina. Each on is suppose to work. The Last which was a last chance was suppose to be the one. It didn't work. Now need more surgery out of insurance and they don't want to do anymore because I owe them money. If it had been fixed the first or 3rd time I'd be ok but now the sixth I can't afford so I guess I'm suppose to lose my sight all together. No bedside manner. Said to do the next surgery would have to use hospital facilities instead of Meca they want $750. I can't work because I can't see and I'm losing more of my vision daily
I saw Dr. Irvine after suffering a Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion. This caused the vision in my right eye to become blurred so badly that I was unable to distinguish the features of large objects. He immediately went to work to try to restore vision to the eye. I am presently undergoing this treatment, but wanted to say how much I appreciate his prompt attention and care to my need!
