My daughter has IH and it was difficult finding someone who was familiar with the disease. She had lost her eye sight completely and doctor Nichols was able to treat her and restored her sight. She lost it a second time and once again he helped her restore her eyes. There was little damage done to her sight and her sight is still 20 / 20. He also monitored the IH disease and has been working with the other spealist along with us throughout what has now been an 8year journey. Thanks you Doctor
