Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Hi. Sorry I've not been available online....I came down with the nasty flu that is going around and have been in bed for the last two days :(
I am located in the North Central part of the USA.
Hi Dr. Rick: So sorry to hear you have been under the weather. We too have had a bad flu season here in Texas.
A friend of ours, Alfred Altamirano, had cataract surgery done in both eyes. The left eye surgery went well and turned out beautifully. The right eye surgery took the Dr. three times as long to perform the surgery and left Alfred blind. The hospital report shows that celestone and garamycin were injected subconjunctivally using retrobulbar anesthesia. What happens if celestone were inadvertently injected into the vitreous cavity? Please elaborate your answer.
You advised us that garamycin if injected wrong will cause blindness or permanent optic nerve damage. This is the case with Alfred. Would you be able to provide a written statement signed by you to be presented to my lawyer stating the details about what garamycin will do. Alfred is willing to pay you for your time and service.
Do you know of an ophthalmologist that would be able to do this statement for Alfred? Please provide name, address and phone number. Thank you.
He is located in San Antonio, TX.
