  2. Hi Dan,
    What a wonderful post . The infographic by Rebecca Sherry is outstanding…a great idea for distribution. How about hiring her for other conditions;strabismus, accommodative , convergence, and oculomotor dysfunctions, visuo-perceptual motor issues etc. I also loved your facts section at the end forsummer reading pleasure.

    Best regards,
