I was in London about to begin a very special 28 day vacation to multiple spots in Eastern Europe when suddenly I lost half the vision in my left eye.

I was in London about to begin a very special 28 day vacation to multiple spots in Eastern Europe when suddenly I lost half the vision in my left eye. I went to an eye clinic and was diagnosed with a retinal artery embolism. Hoping my trip was not over I called Dr. G. David Onstad on his cell phone. Dr. Onstad had multiple conversations with multiple London doctors all at very inconvenient Florida hours over a two day period. Dr. Onstad suggested various hospital tests and consulted on their outcomes. As a result Dr. Onstad cleared me to join the excursion after missing only the first day. It was a wonderful experience and I will never be able to thank him appropriately for his skill and selflessness. I am proud to call him a great friend.
