  1. Hi, Thanks for the terrific website. Unfortunately, my vision has worsened so much that I am not inclined to read much anymore so I haven’t perused the entire site. Which brings me to my question: Has anyone here PERSONALLY had great success with a Neuro in California/West Coast yet? I cannot call them all and have noted that most only provide surgery to children and/or are not in-network with most insurance providers. Could you please name the doctor(s) that fit the bill. (Life with poor vision, DV and stereopsis is difficult enough, thanks, without a lifetime of trying to find the right doctor.) Any and all is very much appreciated. Again, thank you.

  2. TBI, you can join our Eyes Apart emial support group and ask there who may have had surgery in California/West Coast. Perhaps someone there can recommend a doctor. It is possible someone will recommend one here in the comments also. Another option (possibly the best option) is to search for a strabismus doctor under “-Find eye surgeon…” in the sidebar.
