Testimonials

Here's the most serious dose of inspiration guys. Seriously, if this story doesn't make you rethink perspective and the importance of staying positive despite so much person and ocular troubles, nothing will. I am proud to know Keer and Dr. Edward Boshnick and am inspired daily by them. Thank you for being so amazing! So many celebs there last night celebrating being grateful, most importantly Keer.

Dear Dr. Boshnick,My eyes are feeling a much better. Before I met you and Dr. Tseng my eyes were very itchy and were dry and most of the time my eyelashes kept curling in and that made my eyes very uncofortable. But now that I have met you and Dr Tseng I have hope that I will some day have sight in my right eye. The scaleral lenses that you gave me are sometimes comfortable also my vision has slighty improved. Look forward to hearing from you.
