FAQs / Dr. Richardson, Do You Have Patients from out of State?


Hello, Do you have patients from out of state?

I am moving to Mesquite, NV. I have had Glaucoma for over 4 years. So far, I am just being watched – none of the eye drops have worked for me. The pressure is 23 in one eye and 24 in the other. I recently read your article that Canaloplasty doesn’t work as well if Cataract surgery is not involved. I am 69 and in good health. I was told that I only have a tiny cataract at this time. Should I schedule an appointment with you or wait until the Doctor says that I need Laser? I am in a real quandary by the drops not working.

Thank you,

Dear D****,

I often care for those who live outside of California. Indeed, this is common enough that travel guidance can be found on my website here:

Patient Travel Guide

I’ve copied my nurse, Ana, who is also a great resource. Please feel free to email or call her for questions not already covered in our travel guide.
