Sometimes the only way to clear up a perpetual sore throat is to remove the tonsils. Constant allergy issues? remove the tonsils and adenoids. Insurance has made this harder to get permission for, causing countless children extended years of missing tens of school days. In Washington state-home to some very stupid liberal politicians...there is a bill to make it mandatory that anyone who handle an eye chart be capable of prescribing glasses and what prescrition to make them. Think of all the parent helpers that help with elementary eye chart reading services. They would be required to not contact parents for the child to be taken to an eye dr, but must come up with the prescription and correct info even to dealing with stigmatism.
