I have a degenerative eye disorder called Keratoconus (KC). The disease had worsened to where it was severely affecting my livelihood (I read contracts for a living). I was referred to Dr. Mao by my eye surgeon as the go-to-guy that has special expertise in fitting difficult cases and to avoid risky surgery (whew!). I was very skeptical but as soon as I met Dr. Mao (Alex) I knew he was different: he is kind, listened attentively and empathetic. He immediately got to work and had me seeing almost perfectly within 20 minutes while I was still in his office one word WOW! He advised I try a new, cutting edge product called a scleral lens and over the next few weeks, Dr. Mao fine tuned the fitting to near perfect vision. He even instructed me on how to take them on and off correctly. I am happy to say I am back at work, the new contact lenses fit great, comfortable and do not go flying off when I blink; I can actually drive at night now too! Thanks Dr. Mao you are TRULY the BEST!
