Announcement of Webinar to Discuss Results of NEI Funded Research Study

On April 8th, at 9pm EST (8pm CST, 7pm MST, 6pm PST), we will be hosting a webinar to present the results of the recently completed randomized clinical trial, Amblyopia Treatment Study-15, which was conducted by the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG) and funded by the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health. We are inviting you to attend the webinar.

The purpose of the ATS-15 study was to determine if increasing prescribed patching dosage improves amblyopic eye visual acuity in 3 to <8-year-old children with apparently stable residual amblyopia following prescribed initial treatment with optimum refractive correction and 2 hours of daily patching.

As a member of the eye care community, you are invited to join your colleagues for this live           30-minute web presentation. Dr. David Wallace (Duke University, Department of Ophthalmology), the ATS-15 Study Chair will be presenting the results of the study prior to publication. 

This webinar will consist of a 20-minute presentation followed by a 10-minute Q&A session.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this webinar.
