I’ve recently learned about, and subsequently added some new links on the resources for parents page, and wanted to bring them to your attention. Thanks to everyone that has suggested sites, and please, keep them coming! If there’s a helpful website or great community out there, I want to list it.
- Eye Resources on the Internet – this is an extremely thorough list of Internet resources about vision compiled by the Association of Vision Science Librarians. (Thanks to Dr. Maino for posting this)
Communities for specific vision issues
- Congenital Glaucoma Network – a network for all people affected by childhood glaucoma come to share their story. (Thanks to commenter Amy for pointing me to this network).
- Magic Foundation: Septo Optic Dysplasia (SOD)/Optic Nerve Hypoplasia – information and links to other families with children with Septo Optic Dysplasia. (Thanks to commenter Denise for pointing me to the Magic Foundation).
Blogs by eye care professionals
- Dr Lea & Children’s Visions – Dr. Lea Hyvärinen is a Finnish pediatric ophthalmologist. She may be most well-known by people here as the developer of the LEA symbols (the pictures of a house, an apple, a circle and a square that are commonly used as an eye chart for children). Her blog managed by her daughter, and is so far, a way of making available her writings about children’s vision development.
- The VisionHelp Blog – VisionHelp is a blog written by a group of leading optometric vision specialists in the U.S. They seek to increase awareness and understanding of vision treatment and vision therapy.
