“Dr. Thomas went above and beyond the standard of care and tried more prescriptions, ideas, and options than any eye care professional I’ve ever seen. She got to the root of my vision problems rather than treating the symptoms. I am seeing clearer and more focused images when I read as well as in my daily life due to the effort and patience of Dr. Thomas.”
