VisionHelp blog showcases convergence insufficiency graphic for OD use

June 19, 2012

In recognition of June as National Convergence Insufficiency Awareness Month, Michigan optometrist Dan L. Fortenbacher, O.D., encourages other ODs to spread the word with an infographic available through his blog, VisionHelp.

The VisionHelp blog asks… “how do you show with a picture the impact of a vision problem that affects over 20 million people in the U.S. alone, often resulting in stress-related symptoms and unnecessary frustration in reading and learning potential? How do you show with a picture a serious vision condition that often leads to emotional fallout including, anger, anxiety and reduced self-esteem? How do you show with a picture a vision problem that is usually not identified in a standard eye sight vision screening or routine eye examination so those affected may not even realize they have the problem? How do you show with a picture that there is hope, because this condition has been extensively researched and there is a cure?!

“How do you show with a picture?

“Created in recognition of June as National Convergence Insufficiency Awareness Month,  vision advocacy group VisionHelp and acclaimed graphics designer Rebecca Sherry tells the story with this picture” available at http://visionhelp.wordpress.com/2012/06/13/a-serious-hidden-vision-problem-convergence-insufficiency-revealed-with-a-picture/.
