    Google Retina Health Center: Alexander Eaton M.D.
    I have been treated by numerous macular specialists in Michigan and Florida over the years. I have found Dr Eaton and his associates to be the top of this group. He is smart, courteous, and carrying. His staff are polite and competent. With a recent severe medical eye emergency he stayed late, and followed up to assure my eye was successfully treated.
