Oscar Tahada’s Keratoconus Treatment

There are many stories out there of patients seen by Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler but the experience for Oscar Tahada was memorable. Oscar was diagnosed with Keratoconus in 1995 much to his dismay they only offered him two treatment options- RGP lenses or a Corneal Transplant. Without hessitation he opted for the RGP lenses but struggled as many do with the discomfort of wearing them.
About three years passed and in 1998 they agreed to give him glasses at this time his Keratoconus was growing much worse more rapidly. It hindered him in his daily routines and gave him a lot of frustration. His passion for tennis also suffered when he found out he had to go from doubles to single because of his slowing reflex and ability to see the ball. He didn’t know what to do.
When he saw the ad for Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler he was hesitant to try it but was desperate for some relief. He received three treatments: INTACS, CK, and Holcomb C3-R ® and after traveling from Jacksonville Florida all the way across the USA to California he was amazed with his results, he said
“Everything they advertised, they delivered on” and smiling he said “ They were very professional, very delicate, it didn’t even hurt at all.”
The next day Oscar got his wish. His quality of vision has improved and now so will the quality of his life. So if you are suffering from struggling night vision, missing the things you love, or want results call Dr. Brian today: 310.594.5209

3 Tips for Finding a Keratoconus Specialist

Keratoconus Patient

Researching treatments of Keratoconus is no different than researching any other condition. First you must fully understand the condition before you can go any further. There are several places that will give you the perfect technical terminology for Keratoconus. But the truth is you probably don’t want to hear all that. Looking for an explanation you can understand is very important. Just as important as finding a doctor who will explain it to you in terms you can understand.

Tip 1: Be sure that your physician is a doctor for the patient first: Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If they give you an answer you cannot understand – Ask again! It is your health on the line. It is important that you know what to expect and what is going on with your body, not whether you upset your doctor.

Finding Reliable information is a big step to researching your condition. You must feel comfortable with the level of experience & education your source has. Don’t be afraid to ask, or research them. This will ensure you are getting the best quality and the newest information available.

Tip 2: Be sure to ask for all your treatment options: No matter how old or new they maybe it is your health on the line. Be sure you have explored every option and are comfortable before perusing any treatment option.

Visit more than one office. If you are trying to determine where to go for treatment, don’t just accept what you read or what others say. Explore a few offices. Walk in, how do you feel there? Is the staff pleasant? How do they feel about you being there, are they open? Do they answer your questions without hesitation? Researching your treatment center should not be just about what you read, it should be about how you feel- and your comfort where you are being treated.

Tip 3: Be sure to ask about the staff’s experience: asking how long they have been there is a good conversation starter. Don’t just pick your treatment center based on your friends referral. Take your time and be sure its the clinic for you. Take an active part in your vision care.
