Name is Thomas Lansford, I was in an auto accident about 2 years ago which caused damaged to a nerve in one of my eyes. As a result, it caused me to have double vision and headaches. I saw a doctor who told me that surgery was an option but may not work and I could end up worse than I am. He gave me glasses that didn’t help and in fact they made my headaches worse. So I sought a second opinion in which I was referred to Atlantis Eyecare, where I met Dr. Lydia Banuelos. Not only did she make me feel comfortable, but she also gave me hope. After careful consideration, Dr. Banuelos performed strabismus surgery on my eye. The very next day my double vision was almost completely gone and after awhile my headaches got much better. It has been 6 months since my surgery and I am very happy with the results so far. I would highly recommend Dr. Banuelos to anyone that needs a second opinion. I am so happy I didn’t settle with my first doctor’s recommendation.

Dr. Banuelos is friendly and courteous and seems very competent professional! She made me feel confident and encouraged being under her care and for the treatments ahead I feel safe and not as petrifide as prior to meeting Dr. Banuelos. Thank you

Dr. Banuelos showed professional services and fulfilled to the highest of my standards. Both the woman who saw me first that gave me the pressure test and gave drops. Doctor Banuelos followed up to explain the exam and tested eyes due to diabetes. Five stars to both of them. Two of my nieces took me to my appointment. One of them liked the cleanliness and how fast I was out. She made an appointment :)

I was pleased with the knowledge and experience demonstrated by Dr. Banuelos. While she gave me much "home work" to accomplish on the way to full recovery, I feel in a few months I will see clearly again. Sincerely
