Community event to offer free vision screenings for children ages 3 to 6 years old on Saturday, August 15 in honor of Amblyopia Awareness Month
In honor of Amblyopia Awareness Month in August, Optiwow and Pediatric Ophthalmology Consultants are teaming up with the Division of Ophthalmology at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital to offer free vision screenings on Saturday, August 15, 2015. An estimated two to four percent of children have amblyopia or lazy eye, which is the loss or lack of development of vision in an eye. If left untreated, vision in the eye may continue to decrease. Early detection and treatment of amblyopia is key to reducing the risk of vision loss.
Dr. Roberto Warman and Dr. Zenia Aguilera are sponsoring the community event, which is free and available to children ages 3 to 6 years old. Dr. Roberto Warman is the Director of the Division of Ophthalmology at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and President of Pediatric Ophthalmology Consultants, a private practice at the hospital. Dr. Zenia Aguilera is a Pediatric Ophthalmologist at the hospital.
Dr. Warman and his wife Ivonne Goldstein have owned Pediatric Ophthalmology Consultants for more than 25 years. Together they have created Optiwow.com to offer kids and teens online access to a reasonably-priced, large selection of attractive, well-fit, high quality, age-appropriate children’s prescription eyewear. Goldstein and Dr. Warman created the site when their optical shop of the same name – Optiwow, also located at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital – recently celebrated 15 years in business.
