Customer Question

My wife has recently undergone cataract surgery and now sees a bump when looking at a straight line. her ophthalmologist determined before the surgery that this condition was present and she may need to see a specialist for the ERM. I'm just researching the benefits, success rates and cost of this procedure. any thoughts?

JA: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?
