“I am 46 years old and have had insulin dependent diabetes for 16 years. Two years ago, I started to develop problems with my vision. I saw several eye doctors who told me I was experiencing diabetes-related changes in my vision, and needed to be treated. Although I started treatment, I felt like my vision was still deteriorating. Because I’ve had laser surgery and cataract surgery, I was told that my vision should be stable, but I felt that I was getting worse. A close friend spoke highly of Dr. Moffett, and I decided to see him about my current problem and find out what more could be done to help my vision. I was worried, but determined to do everything possible to improve my eyesight.

“Dr. Moffett and his staff exceeded all my expectations. My evaluation was very thorough, and I was treated extremely well. The explanation I received was detailed and helped me understand the exact nature of my problem. Dr. Moffett recommended additional treatment that included medicine injected inside my eye to better control my diabetic retinopathy. This has helped, and I now feel that my vision has stabilized and even slightly improved.

“I recommend Teton Retinal Institute with confidence to my friends and family because of the outstanding and compassionate care I received. Seeing Dr. Moffett and having my problem cared for at Teton Retinal Institute has boosted my morale and made me feel like I’m now on the road to healing.” – Suzy Q

“I am in my 70’s and have been struggling with macular degeneration. Despite seeing several doctors regarding this condition, I have never really understood the exact nature of my problem. A doctor of optometry and an ophthalmologist both recommended that I see a retinal specialist regarding my macular degeneration. They both spoke well of Dr. Moffett, so I made an appointment to see him. My visit met all of my expectations, and the information I received significantly improved my understanding of the nature of macular degeneration. Dr. Moffett couldn’t cure my macular degeneration, but he gave me hope that it could be slowed. He also indicated that treatments resulting from future research might help stabilize or even improve my vision. I had hoped Dr. Moffett could cure my macular degeneration. Although he didn’t, he has given me hope for the future and made me feel that I’m receiving the best treatment that medical science currently has to offer. Dr. Moffett and his staff are outstanding, and I would recommend their services to anyone who has a retinal problem.” – John P.
