Doctor JD Ferwerda and patient

This young boy was practically blind before his surgery 3 weeks ago. Although his vision hasn’t recovered 100% yet, he wants to go back to school next week! He pays me back by continuously smiling 🙂 when he checks his eyes with me!!

Doctor JD Ferwerda and patient

This young girl had a serious problem with one of her eyes. The other eye was functionally blind already. After surgery the retina is ok again and her vision is improving again! These patients are the reason why we keep on going!

Doctor JD Ferwerda and patient

Never give up! Especially in Eyecare. This gentleman had a retinal detachment and could only see hand movements with his affected eye. 2 other doctors didn’t want to do surgery anymore. I did surgery about 10 days ago and now his vision is 20/80 already. These cases really give me joy 🤩!

Doctor JD Ferwerda and patient

Special patient today at our clinic!

Doctor JD Ferwerda and patient

The gentleman on the right side of the picture is extremely happy with the improvement of his vision after surgery.

Doctor JD Ferwerda and patient

This gentleman was functionally blind since October last year. 1 eye completely lost, the other only seeing light perception. Other clinics didn’t want to do surgery anymore. Yesterday I did surgery, today his uncorrected vision was 20/150 already. Incredible result so far! This is why we do it!!
