National Keratoconus Foundation Top Doctors, 2018
I had a keratotomy 20 or 25 years ago, and for 20 years I did well. Then my corneas
started to droop and glasses wouldn’t help my vision. I went to see several cornea specialists, and they said there was nothing I could do. Then I went to see Dr. Hammonds
, and he said they could fix me right up. He sent me to Dr. Fox
, and she fitted me with scleral lenses. - Valerie M.
