I am so grateful that we caught his vision problem early. I believe had I not known about this he would have had problems early on in school.
Lashey, Dominic's mom
If we had not learned about it until he was in school, it would have been too late.
Jennifer, Henry's mom
The early detection will help them succeed in school and recreational activities/hobbies. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Barbara, Kenyon and Perry's mom
