I was a patient for many years and saw her in 2015 complaining of blurry vision while wearing my glasses ...she said my prescription was fine, nothing wrong with it and my eyes were fine..sorry to say i finally went to another opthamologist who told me i had cataracts in both eyes and was basically legally blind...was shocked and truly disappointed in DR Leonards iagnosis and would just say to be aware if you truly have an eye problem!
