As the baby boomers’ accessory du jour is the “reader” glass wear, more serious optical issues are commanding attention and getting results from the advanced research.
For instance, there’s amblyopia that for nonprofessionals goes by the tag “lazy eye”. In addition to the appearance that the eyes are not aligned normally, it also affects the eyes’ vision. While people have learned how to deal with the disorder in the past, recent research has provided parents with a better understanding how to deal with amblyopia in their children with an emphasis on reading speed.
Thanks to the Retina Foundation’s Retina Foundation Scientist Hour, Foundation Vision and Neurodevelopment Laboratory Director Krista Kelly will present “her team’s current investigations into the impact of amblyopia on children’s daily lives” on Wednesday, January 27, at 10 a.m.
That freebie presentation will kick off a monthly series by the Foundation that “will showcase the cutting-edge research conducted by one of our talented scientists. Research findings will be discussed, with time for an open dialogue to answer any questions our guests may have about our vision research at the Retina Foundation.”
As you guessed it, the presentation will be safe via Zoom. Check with Sarah Kelly at 214.363.3911, Ext. 109 to get a link to access to the program.
On the other hand, if you’re shy or are already booked, the Retina Foundation Scientist Hour events will be available on the Foundation’s website.
