When asked his favorite patient experience, Dr. Joshi relates, ” I always enjoy patients coming back the following year and saying how my recommendations helped their problem/conditions. Specifically – a young college student having trouble with the extended near and computer demands that she hadn’t encountered in high school. I determined that her eyes were having trouble working together for these prolonged near tasks and prescribed some exercises, change of habits and glasses for near work. She called in a few months later so excited and appreciative to be able to do her near tasks without strain and fatigue.”
