I am still available to help you with your question. I look forward to your response to my inquiry above.

I think you have nothing to fear about when it comes to your grandchildren. If there had been an epidemic like you are talking about all ophthalmologists would have heard of it by now......I'm an ophthalmologist and I've never heard a word about this.

Does that make sense to you?
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 5 years ago.
Let me know if you want to discuss this further.....just because you've already paid doesn't mean you can't ask more questions of me :o)
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 5 years ago.
I'm sorry you felt the need to give negative feedback. However, one mothers experience a nationwide epidemic does not make. Your grandkids are safe.
