Hi Dr. Wong,
It’s been almost 2 years since my FOV and I can’t tell you how happy I still am at the results: perfectly clear vision in my right eye! Before coming to see you, I was in a state of despair, having endured a difficult year due to the explosion of floaters in my right eye – it had gotten so bad that I had stopped reading altogether because of the frustration of having to constantly ‘wiggle’ my eyes around to get the floaters out of the way for just a few seconds. I even wore glasses with one lens covered up when I was working on my computer because it was so difficult and frustrating to see out of my right eye.
My regular eye doctor made things worse: despite acknowledging the unusually high number of floaters, he casually and callously told me “Don’t worry about it, you’ll get used to it”. Needless to say, I never went back to see him again. I also spent thousands of dollars on several sessions of YAG laser treatments (I went to see doctors in VA and CA) and unfortunately those didn’t work for me – the treatments (5 total) left me with a large, hazy cloud and the remaining floaters gathered directly in the center of my field of vision.
I didn’t have much hope that anyone would be able to help me, until I came to see you Dr. Wong. For the first time since my ordeal had begun, it felt like I finally had someone who was truly ‘in my corner’ and I can’t thank you enough for that. Furthermore, your online accessibility was something I had never experienced with a doctor before – the fact that I could ask questions and that you would actually answer them promptly (!!) made me wonder: “Why aren’t all doctors this accessible and this responsive?”.
Fortunately for me, my story has a very happy ending: the operation was a great success – better than what I would have hoped for – and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. So, thank you very, very much. (By the way, I will probably come see you again in the next few weeks/months because the floaters in my left eye have gotten worse.)
