It’s hard to exam in a two three or
four-year-old who doesn’t respond in the way that you’re used to a child isn’t able to tell you if they can see if they see double if they see blurry they just
know what they’ve seen their whole life it’s kind of amazing as a pediatric eye
doctor to be able to be that voice for them eighty percent of learning in
school is done via the visual system and approximately one in ten children has a
vision problem that’s substantial enough that clearly impact their ability to
learn every child deserves the same starting opportunity to succeed in life
it is crucial to catch vision problems when children are young because that’s
when we’ve had the biggest impact at the university eye center we treat the whole
child we determine do they need glasses are the eyes healthy or do we need to go
a little bit further Yaya’s very fortunate that mom had the foresight to
bring him in for an eye exam I was scared say maybe in the future my son
gonna be blind tell me what you see okay Yaya what’s this right here
excellent job what’s that one right here when Yaya came to see us last fall he was about to have three evaluations in his educational
setting the school did not feel like he was keeping up with his peers on our eye
exam we discovered he couldn’t see beyond two or three inches from his face
so one could imagine how that can impact your school performance after the glasses that come for the checkup they will see a lot of improvement
so I was so happy for them fantastic how do they feel what’s that excellent and this one once Yaya received the glasses he had the evaluations and passed them totally
changing the course of his school career the school now you do in progress even
on the train is non-stop mommy ABC I see a lot of change what’s great about
pediatric eye care is that sometimes when you see one child you can find
things that run in families she say do you mind checked all of them so I
bring the other two if she was not told me that I was not gonna know Miriam needed glasses and I can come check mine also I never get it done we love to say
that when we treat the child we not only treat the patient but we treat the whole
family if Yaya hadn’t been treated we can’t really say what his future would
have been I think it would have been very difficult for him to learn in
school he wouldn’t have even been able to see the things close enough to him on
his desk let alone things written on the board our life is changed I’m happy for
all the doctor they always smile and say hi everybody loved their job here I’m
feel like I come to the right place we serve thousands of patients like Yaya
and it’s our ambition to have every one of them have the same kind of experience
and for us to have a positive impact on their lives construction for the new
pediatric eye care center is going to begin in this fall it’s a 2.5 million
forty nine hundred square foot state-of-the-art facility but it’s
really much more that’s really about changes in the way we do
a pediatric eye care we have designed the center to advanced interdisciplinary
team based care enhance care coordination support or clinical
research efforts and improve patient outcomes all while providing a warm
welcoming family-centered experience one of the most central design features of
the Center for pediatric eye cares was known as the collaboration zone the
collaboration zone is an area where the healthcare team can work together with
immediate access to all eight of our diagnostic treatment and examination
rooms today we’ve raised two million of the 2.5 million that we need all of
tonight’s proceeds are going to go towards achieving that goal we need to
remember that the goal is not simply to build a facility but rather to create a
vision and implement the vision for pediatric eye care going into the future
thank you for your support
