Special Contacts Geared Directly to your Condition

“I enjoy the ability to help people to see better than they ever thought possible,’ said Dolan. “I had a patient that was in her early 30's and was not able to see well enough with her glasses to be legal to drive. I fit her in special contacts geared directly to her condition and she was able to see 20/20. Both she and her mother starting crying in the exam lane and we all hugged it out.”
