My experience with Eisengard has been very frustrating. I feel like he disregards my concerns about the reaction I get from prescribed meds. When I sent him images about the constant redness he suggested otc eye drops. Which did not work, so I had to make the self diagnosis and go off of a med he prescribed. When I told him this at my appointment he began to once again was dismissive and condescending. However when I asked about the pressure in my eyes they had gone down significantly, so the question I have is was I being over medicated all this time.
