That experience could have been very frightening to be sure, but it actually turned into a spiritual one for me because of the exceptional skill, encouragement, and empathy of my doctor, Rick Bendel, M.D. at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. The privilege of working with this amazing doctor and undergoing eye surgery under his care is difficult to put into words. Dr. Bendel graduated from medical school with highest distinction, did an internship in India, and was a Fellow and did his residency at the Kresge Eye Institute. He was invited as professor for the 20th anniversary of finishing his residency at Kresge and was awarded their Distinguished Alumni Award in June 2015. I believe all of this has made him an extraordinary and sensitive doctor - one that other doctors could learn from.
When Dr. Bendel first discovered that my narrow angle glaucoma was extremely problematic and perhaps even close to a dangerous closure with the possible loss of sight, he gently and patiently brilliant-colors explained the danger my eyes were in. I shall never forget how tranquil and confident he made me feel - without making me panicked or unnerved. Days later in the operating room, I was calm and comfortable as I listened to the sounds of soft, soothing music playing in the background, and there was no chattering among the staff. Dr. Bendel explained that he wanted me to be able to relax and focus on the music while he focused on his task - a teamwork approach. I could feel his reassuring hands on my face as he instructed me to "Look at the light, Joy. It truly became a spiritual occasion for me as "the light" turned into outlandishly beautiful colors as he worked on my eye.
Somehow that entire experience changed my perspective on seeing. Yes, I now think that I have a new way of "seeing". I learned something about sight and vision from Dr. Bendel's concern and kindness and from my period of "not seeing" with my right eye.
Strange how my encounter with the very compassionate Dr. Bendel and my brief, temporary bout with not being able to see has helped me to experience a deeper kind of seeing.
Thank you also for highly skilled and compassionate doctors like Dr. Bendel who believe in us and help us when we are in dark times.
Beautifully written and Dr. Bendel is amazing.
Joy, you are spot on about Dr. Bendel.
My husband has angle closure glaucoma and we are so fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Bendel's.
I have known Dr. Bendel for 25 years. It was such a blessing to hear this story of not only his skill but his kindness and gentleness toward his patients.
Joy:Last year I also had the privilege of Dr. Bendel's healing hands and spirit, tho' only a relatively simple procedure was done: removing the cataract on each eye.
