Vision Therapy Online Resources

To help educate patients and parents about visual problems and treatments, we have been giving out online references for the last few years. Well, I was looking at it the other day while handing it to a patient and I was shocked at how out of date it was! I am happy to report that the amount of information on children's vision and vision therapy has absolutely EXPLODED on line.

I hope that you find the references below useful in learning about vision and finding others with similar questions and experiences. And, of course, do not hesitate to Ask Dr. Nate. You may also want to share your experience online via one of the below, or email me at doc@brighteyestampa.com.

I am intentionally leaving in the full links so that if you want to print and share this information with a friend or a family member you can do so without having to Google or Bing any of them.

Also, understand that this is not a comprehensive list. I have not included every possible online resource - the list would be too long! If I have left any out that you think should belong, please let me know!

See well!
Dr. Nate
