- This is the American Optometric Association's website. It has a wealth of information as well as a link to FAQs in Spanish.
- This is the site sponsored by the California Optometric Association. It is also quite helpful with a few programs specific to California such as the CVF which provides eye exams and glasses to the working poor.
- This is the National Institute of Health’s site specifically about eyes ( your tax dollars at work).
- This is a site about macular degeneration sponsored by a private foundation. It has lots of good nutritional advice generally though I found the specific recipes alarmingly high in fat!
- This site seems to have a lot of useful information that isn’t totally biased one way or another though there are lots of ads floating around the site!
- The following sites are filled with information both in English and Spanish (as well other languages) in the California Diabetes Program's site.
- www.diabetes.org (American Diabetes Association)
- www.caldiabetes.org (California Diabetes Program)
- www.nei.nih.gov/health/diabetic (National Institute of Health)
- Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. An alarming statistic that I learned in a recent lecture was that, if current trends continue, for children born in the year 2000, one out of three will develop diabetes (and for Hispanic children, the chance is 50/50!). This is a preventable epidemic!
- Daniel F. Goodman, M.D
- Dr. Goodman's site is an excellent resource for questions about LASIK and other forms of refractive surgery. He's an extremely skilled surgeon who has that quality of staying on the cutting edge of surgical techniques yet is conservative about adopting the 'fashionable technology of the week'!
- Executives Association of San Francisco
- (EASF) is the oldest continuous business league in the world, founded in San Francisco in 1916.
