Feb 17, 2022
I am very grateful to Dr. Shin for the care are received from her, for follow-up care after I had an operation for an eye melanoma. The melanoma operation (performed at UCLA) required a radioactive "plaque" inserted for a week. The standard aftereffect is that my muscles were stretched, causing strabismus, crossed eyes, requiring realignment. This operation she performed flawlessly. After that, the next job was to correct my eyes for cataracts, for which she and her assistant prepared meticulously. I was required to come in several times for vision acuity measurements. This was done to make sure the prescriptions for the implant lenses were dead on accurate. Thanks to her uncompromising meticulous approach, I've one eye that is 20-20 without glasses, and both eyes that point In the same direction. I see, however, some patients are frustrated with long wait times. That's caused, in part, because pre-school and school children in for strabismus are often ornery and time-consuming.
