Eye and Vision Care
My 29 yr old son is in the military and just had an eye exam. They told him his vision went from 20/30 to 20/200 in the past year, he is right eye dominant and the left is 130 percent stronger than the right. They also told him he can no longer drive. Is this possible? He has not had a noticeable change in vision and qualified as an expert marksman just yesterday.
I can't explain his condition without examining him.
But he deserves a definitive diagnosis, treatment plan, and prognosis.
Please ask him to find out what the military eye doctor's diagnosis was and then re-submit your question to http://www.netwellness.org/.
