Hello from JA

I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine and I can help you with this and any follow up questions. I cover a lot of ground and might give you an answer or ask for information, but use reply to communicate with me for questions or added details.

First of all I would not suggest surgery.

This sounds as if the refractive assessment has not been done correctly, OR, she is involved in behavioral optics, in which they try to push the eyes to work.

It sounds like they simply can not get a good prescription for her.


This is often the result of many incorrect prescriptions over time.

And that can often be corrected.

Before I let her near a surgeon, I would get a practitioner recommendation from this group.
