"I was seeing a retina specialist in the Monrovia area for many years and was diagnosed with macular degeneration in both eyes. I received one treatment of Avastin but did not see an improvement in my vision. I was also treated by Kaiser at the Baldwin Park facility, and was told my eyes would stay the same. I finally decided to look for a retina specialist closer to home and found Retina Eye Specialist/Dr Murthy located in South Pasadena. I read the reviews on Yelp and was very pleased with them, so I made an appointment.

My first visit to Dr. Murthy's office was a very good experience. His staff made me feel comfortable and they cared about my situation. Dr. Murthy treated my macular degeneration by giving me three treatments in each eye over a course of three months. I noticed an immediately improvement. My focus was brighter and sharper. One of my eyes had a gel type membrane growing, and in order to see better, Dr. Murthy recommended a vitrectomy (pars plana vitrectomy) surgery. I received an immediate appointment for outpatient surgery at San Gabriel Valley Medical Center. The surgery was very smooth and successful. Recovery took about 2 weeks. I am very happy that I can almost see clearly and the floaters are gone. I continue to use eye drops daily.

The South Pasadena office visit wait time is very short. This office does not overbook its appointments. Parking is behind the building. Dr Murthy and his staff are very professional and really care about their patients. A special thanks to Dr. Murthy and his staff. I have been very pleased with my treatments and strongly recommend Dr. Murthy."
