About

"As an orthoptist, I help physicians and patients with assessment of binocular vision. Binocular vision disorder can cause doublevision, decreased vision, and eye strain. When I watch our pediatric patients grow and do better visually, or when the patients tell me 'that is magic' as I help eliminate their double vision, I deeply feel the joy my job brings to both my patients and myself." — Xiaoyan Shan
