The doctor was reassuring about the fact that my vision in left eye had gotten somewhat worse. He did that by proactively giving me an injection today and informed me of some other injections coming down the pike. He also dida very fine job of numbing my eye so that I barely felt the injection. He really is a credit to GWMFA and I would rate him outstanding.
