Thanks Ruidoso Valley Noons Lions Club for KidsSight

Eileen at Ruidoso Public Library's Archive
On Wednesday, November 6, the Ruidoso Valley Noon Lions Club brought KidsSight to the public library.
Curt Dimberg, Mike Schattner, Esther Franco, and Joan Kalkwarf dropped in to operate the Amblyopia detector.

The National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine has information on Amblyopia at Medline Plus.  Mayo Clinic also offers information as does the Lions International website.  Amblyopia is also called Lazy Eye.  Untreated, it may lead to loss of depth perception and other complications.

Check out Fixing My Gaze, a book by a once-stereoblind scientist who recovered as an adult.  On our shelf at 617.7 Bar.
