Had Cataract surgery on both eyes March 20, 2014 and April 3, 2014.   Both surgeries went well and recovery was routine until the conjunctivitis appeared.   The doctor didn't seem to know what to do with an allergic reaction other than wash my hands frequently.   I was never referred to another doctor for care or given any care to deal with the allergic reaction and "pink eye" in my eyes.   The delay may have caused permanent damage certainly a long, disturbing recovery.

It is a long wait for him at times.  He is very qualified and professional.  I have referred people to him and they have been happy too. 

Dr. Derivaux is my ophthalmologist.  The last time I saw him was 6 to 8 weeks ago for a follow up on a cataract surgery.
