Doctor DanB :

I'm sorry I wasn't in the chat room when you were. I can check back with you at approximately 7pm Pacific Standard Time, which for you in Albuquerque would be 8pm, I believe? Let's try planning on that time and we can chat more. But just in case, let me give you a little information now...

Doctor DanB :

I am trying to find you eye centers near Albuquerque that have ophthalmologists who implant this and I haven't found anyone yet. However, I do know of some world renowned eye surgeons in Eugene, Oregon who are implanting this. It is Drs. Fine, Hoffman, Packer who are implanting this telescope. Their website is http://www.finemd.com/implantable-miniature-telescope.html

Doctor DanB : Are you available now?
