My son just turned 1 year old and in the last two months his right eye was turning in. Our pediatrician said he should have his eyes tested
so we brought him to see Dr. McKee.
He tested his eyes and he needed glasses. We put his glasses on and got him home, and he walked for the first time, taking seven steps. He never walked before because he couldn’t see. It was an emotional moment for us. - Summer W.
