The dream of seeing the world in your own eyes has a price tag that can stretch into millions.
A new generation of children with eye problems have no such option, but the future of this emerging field is uncertain.
Dr Young is one of the few ophthalmic specialists with extensive experience in children’s eye care.
He is the director of Vision Center of Texas, a children’s health and eye care clinic in Houston, and also serves as the chief executive of Vision Medical Group, a private investment firm based in Austin.
I was one of those kids with the condition.
In 2012, I developed a blood clot in my eye.
As a child, I would go to the doctor to get checked out.
And in 2014, my vision got worse.
I needed to be checked out for an eye transplant.
For about six months, I couldn’t see.
I had to stay home from school.
Then in 2015, my doctor told me to try to see as many children as I could.
At the time, I had no training in ophthalmology, but my experience with children’s vision had helped me understand what I was doing wrong.
My ophthalmoscope was an old Philips, so it took a while to get used to it.
But it was a great first step.
When I got home and my vision returned, it was so much better.
I could see my friends more clearly, and I was able to communicate with them better.
After that, I was on a path to becoming a pediatric ophthalmist.
That was a major breakthrough for me.
I would have never thought that I would be doing this at age 40.
Now that I’m an ophthalmatologist, I’ve also been doing some clinical work, but it’s more focused on eye care and rehabilitation.
To be a pediatrician, you have to be comfortable with the fact that you can’t see the world.
That’s a big difference from a lot of other professions, including a lot that you see in the news, like medicine and dentistry.
The next step is being able to do the work that your family needs to do, like treating children with corneal ulcers, which is a much more difficult surgery for kids.
One thing I like about being a pediatric doctor is that I get to see kids from different backgrounds, and that allows me to see what they’re like in their everyday lives.
There’s a lot more work to do before you can become a pediatric orthodontist.
