Dr. Wykoff provided a very through examination of my AMD and what he believe and recommended should be the plan of treament to control AMD and preserving my sight. The second opinion was very professional and reinforced my opinion about the use of his and other specialists in conjunction with a full sight preservation/improvement program.
