New links to the resources page – the Wisconsin Families of Visually Impaired Children (WIFVI) and a link to Nicole’s blog “Carrots make you go blind?!?!” about her baby daughter Penny who has bilateral cataracts. If anyone else has a blog you’d like me to add, please let me know!
Guide to strabismus surgery – The Children’s Eye Foundation has written a fantastic guide that I would recommend to anyone who is facing the possibility. The guide talks about when surgery is appropriate (in the majority of the cases, it is not), what the surgery entails, risks, and information about the recovery.
Calendar contest – Speaking of the Children’s Eye Foundation, keep on voting in the photo contest. There’s still more than 2 months left, and a new photo (Penny) should be showing up soon.
Pediatric vision test – I received a comment about a new test, Enfant Pediatric VEP Vision Testing System, that can be done at a pediatrician’s office to test pre-verbal children for vision deficits. You can read more here.
