This post was made by a nurse practitioner with no formal medical school or ophthalmic training. I have called her to clarify her inaccuracies, misinterpretation of ophthalmic procedure and misunderstanding of the findings of other professionals. She has not responded to my call. Office has a licensed optometrist for contact lenses. Contacts were addressed. Proper eye exam was done with all thirteen required elements. Refraction when dilated determines full amount of nearsightedness.

This post was made by a nurse practitioner with no formal medical school or ophthalmic subspecialty training. Total misrepresentation of facts. She has not responded to my call to clarify. No boat missed here. Her other comment above also unsubstantiated. Office has a licensed optometrist for contact lenses. Contacts were addressed. Proper eye exam was done with all thirteen required elements . Refraction when dilated determines full amount of nearsightedness.
