Summary: Not blind yet
December 16th, 2016
Dr. Neilson over the past years has kept me from going blind. Through his efforts and determination to assess and improve my eye sight.
I have been able to not only keep my eye sight but was able to go through cataract surgery on both eyes greatly improving my eye sight.
Without Dr. Nielson's continued efforts I believe
I would have lost my sight by now.
