Our 18YO son Jacob, who'll attend the University of Oregon on a baseball/academic scholarship this fall, was struck in the right eye by a golf ball on Monday afternoon in Oregon. He was there playing for his collegiate team, the Klamath Falls Gems.
Six hours following the injury, a retinal specialist performed surgery in Ashland, Oregon. My wife and I were able to bring Jacob home to Dallas Wednesday, and we saw a specialist yesterday.
It's bad, friends.
I've searched the world for the best eye-trauma physicians, and on Monday JP will be seen by Dr. Ronald Gentile and Dr. Stanley Chang in NY.
Please pray for my son? And if you know of anyone who is absolutely the best in the world at traumatic eye repair, please let me know?
