Dr. Byrd is the bomb! When my daughter was only 6 or so and had to get corrective lenses for accommodative esotropia, she explained to us what our program would be well into her teen years and that if we followed it, there was a likelihood that my daughter would grow out of the condition. And that is exactly what seems to be happening! She is friendly and always makes my daughter feel cool with the visit, while answering all of my questions!
