Allow Dr. Lingua to continue surgery for Nystagmus patients at UCIrvine

This petition had 1,981 supporters

Dr Robert Lingua has been changing people's life by offering a unique and life changing eye surgery for Nystagmus patients out of UCIrvine at the state of the art facility Gavin Herbert Eye center.  With more than 100 surgeries already performed, there are patients all around the country and world waiting to have this surgery.  On or around June 30th, 2016, there was a medical complaint letter to UCIrvine stating that the procedure was crippling people's eyes.  This accusation could not be farther from the truth.  As a result, UCIrvine has suspended Dr Lingua from doing the "modified sinskey procedure" until further notice.  This procedure had made national headlines by helping people with the visual impairment of nystagmus (uncontrollable eye movement), not only see better, but it has calmed their eyes as well and helped patients have a chance at a normal life.....driving, playing sports....all things that may have not been possible before surgery. (the child in this photo has both Nystagmus as well as Strabismus which can commonly go together) check out the links below to learn more!
