ABC News article about Amblyopia & Video Games

Last week I was interviewed by ABC News on the topic of Amblyopia and playing video games, specifically in regards to the Nintendo DS. Dr. Maino of Maino's Memos  was also interviewed for the article.  The interview was in a response to a news story about a 6 year old boy who had notable vision improvements after playing Mario Kart on the DS.  Last year I published a blog post when my daughter started using her DS during patching time. You can find the article here. I believe that the DS is just one of many productive activities for kids to do during patch time.
