Multiple surgeries later, John’s eyesight was restored, and he is now able to continue teaching and traveling.
The next morning, John underwent his first eye surgery, but unfortunately this was only step one of the recovery process. John, a program director for Ohio State’s Center on Education and Training for Employment, and his wife, Kathy, were worried how their life would be impacted if he were to permanently lose his eyesight.
After the initial surgery, John was put under the guidance of Thomas Mauger, MD. Dr. Mauger went above and beyond his routine ophthalmologic services to help restore John’s eyesight.
Even when John was out of the country, Dr. Mauger made sure his care was a priority. Once, when John had eye trouble during a trip to Italy, Dr. Mauger answered all of his long distance phone calls, helped him locate a local physician and facilitated an emergency flight home for a Sunday appointment in the United States.
