I apologize for not posting much recently. There’s been news recently in understanding some of the underlying causes of the increase in myopia, and in the treatment of amblyopia that I would love to write about some time soon. But I’ve been focused — pun intended — on planning for the 2015 Great Glasses Play Day, which is coming up in just a week (ack!!!).
This year, we have more locations than ever and talking with the organizers is super exciting. Take a look at our map of locations and see if there’s something near you. We would love to have you join us – there are a lot of fun games and crafts and activities are planned, plus it’s a great chance to meet other families who are also dealing with vision issues and trade stories and tips. I’ll be at the Twin Cities, MN event. All events are free and open to the public.
For those that aren’t near an event, we have a lot of other ways for you to participate. We’ve posted fun activities and crafts for you to do with your child at home, and ideas of ways to spread the word about the importance of early detection and treatment of vision issues in kids.
