Development and pilot-testing of an intervention to improve access to eye care for Hispanic children
The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate an educational intervention to improve access to eye care for Hispanic children. We are using a qualitative approach to explore the sociocultural factors associated with seeking eye care for children among Hispanic immigrant families in Birmingham from a theory-based and culturally-relevant perspective.
The Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG) is supported through a single grant to the PEDIG Coordinating Center (CC), which funds all aspects of the group either directly or through subcontracts. PEDIG was formed to conduct clinical research in strabismus, amblyopia, and other eye disorders that affect children. Among others: The Correction of Myopia Evaluation Trial II (COMET II) and The Amblyopia Treatment Studies (ATS 1,2,3,5,6, and 7).
Role: Site PI for ATS 6 and 7
Correction of Myopia Evaluation Trial (COMET)
ARRA supplement to Clinical Center Grant
Funded by National Eye Institute since 1997
Status: in follow-up
Convergence Insufficiency Treatment Trial (CITT)
The CITT is a randomized, controlled, single-masked, multi-center study to: 1) compare the success rate of Pencil Push-up therapy, office-based vision therapy, and sham office-based vision therapy for the treatment of convergence insufficiency and 2) develop more precise estimates of the success rates of these two treatments for convergence insufficiency.
Role: Clinical Investigator
