Rare Eye Condition in Children Corrected With Surgery

Akron Children's Hospital Slows the "Dancing" Eye

WEST HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - BroadcastMed, Inc.'s surgical web portal ORLive.com is proud to present a premiere web program highlighting the procedure to correct a rare eye condition called infantile nystagmus. About one in 3,000 people have infantile nystagmus, which causes rapid, uncontrollable eye movements that often blur vision. While there is no cure, a surgical procedure designed to slow the "dancing" eye has shown promising results. Ophthalmologist Richard Hertle from Akron Children's Hospital will be discussing this procedure in a premiere web program.

Don't miss "Eye Muscle Surgery: Expanding the Treatment for Nystagmus in Infancy and Childhood," tomorrow at 6:00pm ET on ORLive.com.
