  1. K LOVES to play on the website "pbskids.org". I have it shortcutted onto my computer desktop so she can go straight to it and play. The only rule is, if she wants to play, she has to be wearing her patch.

    She says her favorite thing to do when wearing her patch is "showing it to her friends"

  6. hand eye coordination is an important factor in the development of successful rehabilitation of equal vision in both eyes and advancing on to efficient "BINOCULAR VISION'
    SPREADING beads of all sizes gratuating from large to tiny on the floor. a fun play time with the amblyopic child and parent is scheduled. pick up all the beads and transfer them to a container. as the vision improves amblyopic child will be able to locate and pick up even the smallest beads with no effort. eye-hand coordination plays an important role as well as normal retinal correspondence (tested with the after-image test) is crucial. children with anomymous retinal correspondence have more difficulty in develooping binocular vision than childfen whose after-image test is normal.
    the retinal correspondenc can be rewired in the brain by means of orthoptic therapy and/or vision training, give this exercise a chance and the rewards will be most beneficial in the development of equal vision in both eyes and advanced rehabilitation of binocular vision.

  7. We have been patching since my son was 3.5 and our favorite thing to do was coloring and drawing. Now my son is 7 and we patch for 3 hours and he likes to play on his computer. Thanks for letting us know about the book!

  8. Another Nintendo DS fan here!

    My son (age 3, almost 4) actually ASKS "Can I please wear my eye patch?" because he knows when the patch goes on, he gets some gaming time.

    He patches two hours per day, and gets to spend about 30 minutes of that on the DS. The rest of the time is filled with fun near-work like playing with blocks, cars, or trains on the floor or play-table.

    It's fabulous to not have to fight about the patch since he associates it with fun!

  11. As a Professor of Pediatrics/Binocular Vision at the Illinois Eye Institute/Illinois College of Optometry, I'm thrilled to have these tools available for the children I work with. I would like to suggest that your readers take a look at http://www.MainosMemos.blogspot.com for the latest on research in the area of amblyopia and children's vision in general. I would also like to suggest that if you have a child with Autism that you read the latest issue of Optometry & Vision Development at http://www.covd.org/Home/OVDJournal/OVD403/tabid/277/Default.aspx . The whole journal is dedicated to the topic of autism. Keep up the great work.
