Testimonials

"I discovered the Children’s Eye Foundation when I was looking online for support for families and children that wear eye patches. The CEF website was wonderful and very helpful. I sent an email and quickly received a response! Thank you for your kindness and interest in James’ story. You and your colleagues are doing wonderful work supporting children and families dealing with eye problems."

Parent

"Any parent whose children have any vision problems, whether it be with what Gracie has or anything else, they are not alone. Early detection and eye screening is key to a successful outcome later for the children. If Gracie’s doctor at her well baby checkup didn’t pick up on this, I don’t know if I ever would have. Before she was diagnosed, to me Gracie was ‘normal’- I didn’t know anything was wrong. No one knows where we would be today, if she never had that visit."

–Gracie's Mom

Parent

"We have never met such a caring team of doctors who took in our family like their own during one of the most difficult times of our lives. We feel as though it is through research funded through organizations such as The Children’s Eye Foundation that Halle’s pediatric ophthalmologists can continue to give her the best medical care available."
