A Growing Community

Yesterday afternoon I discovered a new resource available to parents and professionals.  A new Facebook Group, entitled Pediatric Esotropia/ Exotropia/ Strabismus/ Amblyopia/ Cross-eyed Awareness, is emerging as another trusted forum for discussion on the “how’s and why’s” of Vision Therapy – this time with a focus on Amblyopia and Strabismus.

The group was started by Virginia Serra and is currently managed and moderated by my good friend, Dr. Charles Boulet. As part of his welcome message, Dr. Boulet writes:

Our goal is to provide balanced information to parents of children who struggle with visual impediments, in particular strabismus and amblyopia. As your administrator, I am most interested in conservative solutions first and so you will learn much about vision rehab in addition to surgical options.

According to Michelle Hillman, founder of Vision Therapy Parents Unite, Dr. Boulet has been key in the growth and success of the VTPU page. It is very exciting to consider that with Dr. Boulet at the helm, this new page will become equally successful!  We are lucky to have these expanding resources available to parents and professional alike!

If you’ve not already done so, please wander over to check it out!
