I can't say enough good things about Dr. Rosalie Silvestri. I came in for a mandatory eye exam from an employer in 2010 for American Airlines. My ex came with me to the exam. When Dr. Silvestri asked if I wanted to dilate my pupils for the retina test I didn't want to as my vision would be blurry for 4-5 hours with light sensitivity. With a little persuasion from the doctor and my ex I did the test.
That test saved the vision in my right eye. The photo above on the right side
is a tear and the oval bubble you see was fluid coming towards my macula. I was 3 weeks from going blind in my left eye. I was diagnosed with Retinoschisis with an asymptomatic underlying retinal tear. Which means I was born with a small hole in my retina that eventually tore.
Dr. Mandeep Dhalla performed the surgery (partial sclera buckle) that week and my vision went from 20/20 to 20/15 in the left eye. My right eye was always 20/60 as I was born with mild amblyopia (lazy eye) where the optic nerve never makes a strong connection with the brain.
So, in summary. GET YOUR PUPILS DILATED AND GET AN ANNUAL EYE EXAM WITH DR. SILVESTRI.
Think about it, you clean your teeth every 6 months and losing a tooth is no big deal, losing an eye is life changing. @jerryascione
I was fortunate to find Dr. Rosalie Silvestri 7 or 8 years ago. She is a wonderful doctor who takes her time, explains everything to you and genuinely cares. My family is in good hands with Dr. Silvestri. I like her as a person and a doctor.
