When I first mounted this page on my web site, Camera Obscura This is not , nor is intended to be, an encyclopedic index of blindness-related resources on the 'net... It is merely a collection of links that I have either come to rely upon personally or which I have stumbled across in the course of my own personal webcrawling. They are offered here merely as jumping-off points for the exploration of blindness-related resources, for following any one of the links listed on this page will open a Pandora's box of information.

6. Kids' Questions
Questions Kids Ask About blindness and questions from children who wish to learn more about blindness. It is important for blind children to learn that
We receive many letters and questions from children who wish to learn more about blindness. It is important for blind children to learn that blindness will not prevent them from living happy and normal lives, and so blind children need to learn from good blind adult role models. We have developed this list of some of the most often asked questions by blind children, and we think it is just as important for sighted children, too.
Who was Louis Braille?
The Braille system of reading and writing was developed by a Frenchman named Louis Braille when he was just a boy. He became blind through an accident, and he discovered that trying to read raised letters was much too slow. He wanted a faster way for blind people to read and write. He modeled Braille after a system of codes used by the military, and then he expanded his system. For more information about Louis Braille, please visit your school or public library.
Who was Helen Keller?
Helen Keller was both deaf and blind. Although she had to fight to get the opportunity, she graduated from Radcliffe College. She wrote several books and worked hard to improve opportunities for the deaf and the blind. At the time when she lived, people who were both deaf and blind did not have very many opportunities. Now there is better education, training, employment, and other opportunities for the deaf-blind. You can learn more about Helen Keller from your school or public library. Back to Top

9. Prevent Blindness America--Amblyopia FAQ
Answers to some frequently asked questions about Amblyopia.Category Health Conditions and Diseases Eye Disorders Amblyopia......Prevent blindness America is the nation’s leading volunteer eye health andsafety organization dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight.
Frequently Asked Questions about Amblyopia
Q: What is amblyopia?
Amblyopia is reduced vision in an eye that has not received adequate use during early childhood.
Q: What causes amblyopia?
Amblyopia, also known as "lazy eye," has many causes. Most often it results from either a misalignment of a child's eyes, such as crossed eyes, or a difference in image quality between the two eyes (one eye focusing better than the other.) In both cases, one eye becomes stronger, suppressing the image of the other eye. If this condition persists, the weaker eye may becomes useless.
Q: Can anything be done to treat amblyopia and prevent vision loss?
With early diagnosis and treatment, the sight in the "lazy eye" can be restored.
Q: When should treatment for amblyopia begin?
The earlier the treatment, the better the opportunity to reverse the vision loss.
Q: What treatments are available?
Before treating amblyopia, it may be necessary to first treat the underlying cause.
  • Glasses are commonly prescribed to improve focusing or misalignment of the eyes.

I hope to do this on a fairly regular basis. In the meantime, I am featuring, again, a series of three articles on foreign policy. These articles were published nearly 30 months in advance of the attacks against America on September 11, 2001and, unfortunately, proved to be prophetic. If America is to prevent future attacks, it must learn the lessons contained in these articles. I will have more to say about this subject later. FOREIGN IDEALS Part 1
Our reckless foreign policy has left America vulnerable to an attack of terrifying proportions.
Part 2
The basic principle that should guide our foreign policy is the same one that should guide our actions domestically.

I am color blind, as is about 12 - 20 percent (depending on whose figures you want to believe) of the white, male population and a tiny fraction of the female population. Most of these circles are nothing but spots to me. Below are the correct answers to what a person with normal color vision would see - and what I see (and most people with Red-Green color blindness). When you see what we can't see, you may understand why it's so tough to find the right sox and why we like bright colors, which are often identifiable.

14. Color Blindness Check
Color blindness Color blindness is an inaccurate term for a lack of perceptualsensitivity to certain colors. Absolute color blindness is almost unknow.
    Color Blindness W hen I was a kid in kindergarten, my parents never knew why I got low grade in identifying the color of crayons. Not until the day I was responsible for an Open Day project on color blindness in my secondary school did I noticed that I am one of the 'victim'. Though I was not blamed for the low grade then, restriction on choosing my job twenty years later frustrated me somehow. C olor blindness is an inaccurate term for a lack of perceptual sensitivity to certain colors. Absolute color blindness is almost unknow. There are three types of color receptors in our eyes, red, green and blue. We also have black and white receptors. They are more sensitive than the color receptors, that is why we have poor color perception in the dark.
    C olor blindness comes as a result of a lack of one or more of the types of color receptors. Most color perception defects are for red or green or both. About 10% of males have a color perception defect, but this is rare in females. Red-green color blindness is a result of a lack of red receptors.
    A nother form of color blindness yellow-blue is the second most common form, but it's extremely rare. It is also possible to have the color receptors missing entirely, which would result in black and white vision.

Box 44792 Madison, Wisconsin 53744-4792 608-845-6500 voice 608-257-4143 fax PREVENT BLINDNESS IN PREMATURE BABIES is a volunteer group formed to provide support and information to individuals and to parents of children who have Retinopathy Of Prematurity, or ROP, (formerly called retrolental fibroplasia, or RLF). PREVENT BLINDNESS IN PREMATURE BABIES is not affiliated with Prevent Blindness America. Feel free to click here to reach their website ROP is a disease of the retina that prevents the eye from developing properly and can lead to permanent damage and blindness, even later in life. ROP is responsible for more blindness among children in this country than all other causes combined. The major effort of the organization is to work to eliminate the major cause of ROP: the use of bright fluorescent lighting in facilities for the care of premature infants. Most of the groundbreaking research in this direction has been conducted by Peter Aleff. He is a research engineer and the father of a child who has ROP. He is convinced that fluorescent lighting is the cause of ROP, and he has found research that backs him up. Another key portion of Peter's Aleff's research is that premature babies can have their eyes exposed to a dangerous dose of light which exceeds government safety guidelines in only a few minutes time. To our knowledge, no one in the medical community has been able to refute this. The medical field is convinced that the cause of ROP is excess oxygen. Peter Aleff further believes that the unnecessary reduction in oxygen to premature babies is killing hundred (if not thousands) annually and also increases the risk of cerebral palsy.
