    your eyeballs are like precious irreplaceable jewels that when they go stupid it is really unnerving and quite frightening. Julie has always been very thorough in listening, exam and explaining what is going on and any option. Through it all it just helps to alleviate, or expel, those concerns and fears. Personally that is just as helpful if not more so than the the eye issues. I myself am a professional stresser so it helps to keep me grounded better. Julie has been a great fit for me.
