Nov 19, 2020
At The Cincinnati Eye Institute, Dr Slingsby examined my left eye for a possible torn retina. After discovering the tear, he highly recommended I have the tear repaired ASAP to prevent total detachment of my retina. He offered to perform the procedure immediately after the examination if I was ready. My niece had experienced a total detachment of her retina in both eyes and from her description of the two separate incidents, I didn't want to go through the mess of a total detachment. I immediately agreed to let Dr. Slingsby perform the procedure to repair my partially detached retina. I was somewhat concerned about the procedure to fix it as it involved a laser. He assured me he had done this procedure many times. Using a special laser, he did the operation in about 15 minutes and it was a total success. I received my second follow up visit yesterday with Dr Slingsby and my retina has healed perfectly. I have a final follow up visit scheduled in 6 months.
