In need of doctor and lab for bi-toric spectacles

I have retinally-induced, field-dependent aniseikonia as a result of a vitrectomy and an ERM peel in my right eye about one year ago -- my right eye now sees everything both taller and narrower than it should -- and I am in search of a doctor and a lab for designing and making bi-toric spectacle lenses for me.  I have purchased Dr. Gerard de Wit's "Aniseikonia Inspector" that can help get this done, and I would greatly appreciate any leads anyone here might have in relation to a willing doctor near Shreveport and/or a capable lab somewhere.

Use the search feature and archives and search "aneisokonia" and read the many posts especially those by JodiJ who has written many detailed posts about her own experience with the problem

Yes, Jodi's posts are very insightful, and there is where I discovered Dr. de Wit and his "Aniseikonia Inspector" software.  However, finding a doctor near me who is willing to learn to make use of it and a lab that is capable of making bi-toric lenses are my present challenges.
