Children’s Eye Care’s Survey
We would appreciate feedback regarding your experience with the practice.
American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus
AAPOS is an excellent resource for patient education about pediatric and adult strabismus disorders. The organization’s goals are to advance the quality of children’s eye care, support the training of pediatric ophthalmologists, support research activities in pediatric ophthalmology, and advance the care of adults with strabismus. Our ophthalmologists and orthoptists are proud to be members of AAPOS.
American Academy of Ophthalmology
The American Academy of Ophthalmology is the world’s largest association of eye physicians and surgeons – Eye M.D.s. All of our ophthalmologists are board-certified by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
American Orthoptic Council
The American Orthoptic Council (AOC) was founded in 1935 with the main purpose of establishing standards for orthoptists in the United States. Besides examining and certifying individual orthoptists, the AOC also is responsible for setting and monitoring standards for the education of orthoptists, and grants accreditation to orthoptic programs in the United States. It encourages and helps to provide continuing education for recertification, and establishes guidelines for the professional and ethical conduct of certified orthoptists.
Children’s Eye Foundation
The Children’s Eye Foundation (CEF) is the foundation of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS). Each year more than four million babies are born in the United States. Of these children, approximately one in twenty requires the specialized medical expertise of a pediatric ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) to avoid permanent loss of vision. Children’s Eye Foundation’s mission is to eliminate preventable blindness through vision screening, advocacy and celebration.
American Academy of Pediatrics
The mission of the American Academy of Pediatrics is to attain optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults.
The EyeSmart® public awareness campaign, sponsored by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, is your trusted source for accurate, timely and relevant eye health information. EyeSmart empowers Americans to take charge of their eye health. We urge everyone to know their risk factors for eye diseases, infections and injuries, and to understand how ophthalmologists can help prevent, diagnose and treat eye conditions.
In 2009 the AAP launched a parent-oriented Web site, HealthyChildren.org, which offers up-to-date health advice for parents and caregivers. The AAP works extensively with the media and carries out public information campaigns to ensure that timely, accurate messages and information reach families and professionals.
The type of patch we recommend for the best results are adhesive skin patches. We recommend Orthopad because they are hypoallergenic, latex-free, a soft material, available in a variety of colors & patterns and specific patterns for boys or girls. They can be purchased online, in some retail stores and in our offices.
