I brought my 4 yr old son to Dr. Sato as a 2nd opinion after his previous Dr. Wanted to jump into surgery for amblyopia (after patching for less than a month). Come to find out my sons eye is improving and we have one hour less of patch time to see if it continues to improve before jumping into surgery.
