I had red itchy eyes for months and my regular eye doctor kept saying it was seasonal allergies. Dr. Carrere, after 1 visit and exam, determined that I was allergic to the eye drops I was using for my glaucoma. During a checkup after using the new glaucoma drops, he discovered that I had the beginning of macular degeneration. He was very informative about how it will progress. Dr. Carrere is very thorough and takes his time during your appointment. I would highly recommend Advanced Eye Institute.
