"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
