Our daughter has seen Dr. Frederick for her amblyopia for the past 6 years. She was diagnosed at 3 and is now 9. Upon first being diagnosed her eyesight was almost completely gone in 1 of her eyes. Thanks to the excellent care of Dr. Frederick and his staff our daughter is today 20/20 with her glasses. We are so grateful for the wonderful care she has received. If you have any concerns regarding your child's eyesight we highly recommend seeing Dr. Frederick.
Thank you for sharing your experience and the wonderful recommendation!

My daughter is usually TERRIFIED of going to the doctor's office. Dr. Frederick's magnificent ability to work with children and put her at ease made our experience very pleasant and productive. She has a lazy eye that thankfully can be treated and hopefully with time she will grow out of. Thank you doctor Frederick!
Thanks for sharing your experience. We greatly appreciate it!
