Transcription: 
If your financial situation is not that great, and you got a child with an eye problem, you really have to take care of it and there are resources. The reason for that is that eye problems in children can be treated best when treated early. It such a heart break when they come late and now the child is too old and if I would have seen him two years before, everything would have been fine. The brain is developing and if the brain does not receive good input, you are not going to have good brain development in terms of visual areas. So don't wait on the eye problem in your child, get it evaluated as soon as possible.

Dr. Wright has authored of over 100 published scientific papers, seven textbooks including his renowned textbook, Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus and has lectured worldwide.  He founded the non-profit Wright Foundation with a mission to reduce blindness and suffering in children with eye disorders through research, education, and clinical care.

An interesting personal note is that Dr. Wright’s youngest son developed crossed eyes as an infant requiring surgery and Dr. Wright operated on his own son.  The outcome was excellent and years later his son served in the United States Marine Corps as a top marksman.
