Over the years I started to
have problems with cataracts in my eyes. They say as we grow older some
problems grow with us too. Looking for an specialist becomes a priority.
Here in town I can do that, but I heard that in Mexicali there were many options
and more than that I heard that you would be able to find the ideal specialist
and with many years of experience. That's how I found Eye Center in
Mexicali, Mexico. I was impressed to know that they could solve any problem
related to my eyes. I asked for an appointment and went to it. When I saw
doctor Benjamin Mendez he said I was right on time to have a surgery and I
would be able to recover my sight. I was so happy to hear that.
Eye Center is the name of
this clinic. I wanted to know a little about them because that's what we
all do when you are going to have a surgery and more when it is in a different
country. I know we are close but I really wanted to be sure that I was going to
be safe and more if it has to do with my eyes. So I looked for the doctors and
I found out many interesting things about doctor Benjamin Mendez and doctor
Alejandra Palazuelos. Both were specialists. Dr. Mendez is in retina,
retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy. And she was another specialist
in eye surgeon in cornea, keratoconus, transplant of cornea. I read many
other specialties they have but I was relieved that they were experienced and
they could help me with my problems.
Dr. Benjamin explained to me
that diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading
cause of blindness in adults. I was scared to hear that at the first time but
the more he explained to me the more I understood that it was not a good thing
but not that tragic. He told me he was going to use local anesthesia and perform
phacoemulsification procedure making a small opening on the side of my cornea
with ultrasound vibrations, that was going to break the cloudy lens into small
pieces then removing them and replace the lens with intraocular lens or IOL,
the whole procedure was for about an hour and he recommended for me to
use sunglasses to help with the light sensitivity.
The surgery was successful.
I am so glad that I took this chance. You hear many things about Mexico. I can
say that they have great eye surgeons like Dr. Benjamin Mendez or Dr. Alejandra
Palazuelos. They were very attentive all the time and I didn't have to wait
long time until I could book a surgery with my insurance here. They accepted my
insurance and the process was so easy. It is so good to have many options and
so close to my town. Mexicali has many options and very good health care
for people. I am so so glad that I took the chance and I can see very good
again. So no more delaying on my vacation time. I'm ready to go to live
free from cataracts and free to see the world with new eyes.
