Recently, without warning, I developed a torn retina in my left eye. I was terrorfied. I said to myself “this is it, I’m going to loose one of my eyes”. The loss of sight in even one of my eyes would have been devastating not only for me, but also my family. I visitited my optometrist who immediately refered me to Dr Jonathan A. Feistmann of NYC Retina. Dr Feistmann is an ophthalmologist and vitreoretinal surgeon. He truly is a godsend. He examined me and explained in detail what the problem was and how it manifested. I was very nervous, but he assured me that the problem could be fixed. He was able to perform a procedure at his office using a laser. It has been a week now and I have not experienced any further issues with my eye. Hats off to Dr Jonathan Feistmann and his very professional staff.
