Getting in to eye center when needed

By uclahealth

“Once I hit 30, I started getting eye infections in my left eye,” says 35-year-old Ryan Miyamoto, who turned to the Doheny Eye Center UCLA in Pasadena. “I have iritis, which is an inflammation of your eye. I use certain drops that calm the eye, and it goes away. But it can also just flare up in an instant. One great thing about this clinic is, because this happens sporadically, there hasn’t been a time where I haven’t called in and been able to be seen either that day or the next day. Today is the first time in three months that I haven’t had a flare up, which is good. I’m on a declining dosage of medication, from as heavy as six times per day, to now only twice per week. Getting down to nothing would be the goal.”
