Benjamin Winters, OD, and Marry Pellicer, ME are featured speakers at vision and learning symposium November 8

virtual-strategy.com, hawaiinewsnow.com, September 14, 2014
School requires that children read at both near and far distances, but Washington law requires that they be screened only for far vision when they enter school. Children do not read at twenty feet away.

Children who cannot see cannot read. UW Bothell’s School of Computer Science and Software Engineering grad students will be presenting their capstone projects, which focused on finding new exercises to help children with binocular vision problems, at the “Right In Front Of Our Eyes” symposium. Read More
