Patient Comments (2)

Dr Lingua is always very patient and gentle with my grandaughter who has been seeing him since she was about 7 months old. She's been in glasses since 8 months and is now 3. She loves going to see him and is never afraid or nervous. Dr. Lingua is very soft spoken and easily develops a rapport...more

We traveled from Colorado to have the best Surgeon in the world correct our sons Nystagmus and were not disappointed. Pretty much DR. Lingua was a prayer answered and our son no longer needs a walking stick and can read letter and see thing he never could see before.
