"Glasses, eye patches look more friendly to kids" our CNN Interview

Last week I did a phone interview with Elizabeth Landau who is the Associate Producer for CNN and wanted to post the link to it on my blog.

I think your approach of making patching fun is really important. I didn't see any mention of video games on your website. Some sports can also be very helpful. New research shows that some computer games can show good results in one hour. One parent treated her 6-year-old child with computer games and sports like homemade bowling. Her child went from 20/400 to 20/20 in 4 months. You can read about it here

"The key might be to do a sport where your eye (while patching) has to track something, moving toward and away from you, that you are trying to hit with your hand. This can be homemade bowling. This can be hitting a large balloon back and forth. This can be ping-pong. A lot of the research has been focused on computer games, rather than something that moves closer and away from you in real, physical space. The distance covered should be fairly large, say more than six feet. This should be more helpful than doing Legos, which my pediatric eye doctor recommended."
