I'm happy to answer questions about eye exam findings and procedures, glasses and contact lens types/prescriptions/problems. I can also answer questions about general eye conditions/diseases.

As I am not a surgeon, detail-oriented surgical-related questions may be better answered by an ophthalmologist.
