My daughter has always had straight A's in school so it was a surprise to me when I found out she was diagnosed with lazy eye. Although many doctors would say it is too late to reverse any eye damage this late in the game, Dr. Silverman gave us hope. He provided the right tools and treatment and I am so proud to say that her vision has improved from 20/50 to 20/30 in just three months. We still have a lot of work to do but I would strongly recommend him to any one. I am forever grateful.
