This patient had scarring and a wound that wouldn’t heal from an infection. After spending 3-4 months between different doctors trying to get treatment, they were nearly going to send her for surgery at Duke.
Before that happened, she came to see Dr Dovie, and we were able to get things stable, referred her to Dr. Melchione who put a scleral lens on her, and, well, her review says it all.
"For the 1st time in months my eye feels normal! Thank you Dr. Dovie and Dr. Melchione at Blacksburg Eye Associates for knowing the technology to heal my eye."
