We live in a time of rapid change, with some failures along the way. But, there among us some truly A-rated people, who take on great challenges on the forefront of science to see that they pull us through in medicine. Their contribution is of par excellence.
I came face to face with the grim reality of waking up to find myself facing blindness in one eye. My ophthalmologist took one look and referred me to a second specialist, who looking deeply concerned said, we do have one doctor who can handle this kind of problem.
This was one Illinois Retina Associates specialist referring me to another specialist in their group; somehow, associated with Rush. The highly recommended specialist I was about to meet was one doctor Pauline Merrill.
Little did I know that I was embarking on a two year journey of surgeries, laser treatment, and injections. It practically becomes a family affair, the staff were great–Rush a huge, breath taking hospital as one gets wheeled into surgery.
For anyone with serious vision problems I would recommend Illinois Retina Associates. They are exemplary. Don’t take chances.
