American Academy of Ophthalmology Launches “Ask an Eye MD” Website

March 31, 2009


As a member of the AAO, I received the following message this week concerning a new on-line service sponsored by the American Academy of Ophthalmology:

 

As part of its EyeSmart campaign to empower Americans to take charge of their eye health, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO, San Francisco) has launched “Ask an Eye M.D.,” a new online service through which the public can submit questions about their eyes to a panel of ophthalmologists. A number of questions will be selected for answers from among those submitted, with the responses posted online. “Our hope is that the service will educate the public about eye health issues, so that people can know their risks and save their sight,” said H. Dunbar Hoskins Jr., M.D., executive vice president of the Academy. The EyeSmart campaign is sponsored by the Academy in partnership with EyeCare America, a public service program of the Foundation of the AAO. In addition, more than 80 state, local and specialty ophthalmology societies are lending their support to the campaign. People can submit questions here.
