After a stressful Christmas preparing this talk, it finally happened.
Here’s an introduction to EyeSkills, what we’ve achieved, where we’re heading, and what we hope to achieve!
Perhaps the most surprising thing about the talk was the resonance it created. We’ve had over thirty people sign up to help as volunteers, over 4 thousand views of the uploaded video, and for a couple of days we were at #7 on HackerNews. Some people are just too kind 😀
The most interesting and important thing of all, was listening to the many people with some form of Lazy Eye share their experiences after the talk. It’s confirming a suspicion that’s been growing for some time, that the term “Lazy Eye” is intellectually far too lazy. There is a large amount of variety in the different symptoms individuals experience, but these seem to be clustering so strongly that it seems possible we are looking at a range of individual disorders which have their own specific differences, under the umbrella of “Lazy Eye”. It is becoming a priority to understand these groupings, so that we can develop more effectively for each specific scenario.
