Review for MARYLAND SOCIETY FOR SIGHT INC, Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a rising junior at Brown University with the ultimate goal of attending medical school, I can honestly say that working with Director Audrey Novak at the Maryland Society of Sight has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. Though courses in neuroscience and psychology have taught me the key role of early intervention for medical health, actually working in preschools has given me first hand exposure in the importance of organizations such as this one. When teachers find that a difficult, contradictory child may have serious vision problems that once addressed may ameliorate his behavior, it is as if a sense of hope is restored. A similar exhiliration comes when a grown adult begins to understand the importance of regular visits to the eye doctor. Baltimore is lucky to have the MD Society for Sight.
