Improved Eyesight for Ryder
My 3-year old son Ryder Stiner was diagnosed with ocular albinism with nystagmus at 2 months. Doctors told me no surgery, glasses, or contacts would be able to help my child see the beauty of the world and at best, he would be legally blind. Doctors said he would never drive or play sports. But God put a blessing in our path and we were introduced to Dr. Lingua in Irvine, California who specializes in an eye muscle surgery that will completely fix Ryder's nystagmus. This would bring Ryder out of the legally blind category and give him a chance to live a full life as a visually able person. We would be staying in Irvine for two weeks when we are able to finally have surgery. I made a promise to my son and God that I would always give him the best care possible. Please help us make this dream of improved eyesight a reality, we would be forever grateful.+ Read More
