Abstract

The internet is a major source of health information for patients and parents. The information found online influences patients' and caregivers' understanding of diagnoses and decision making regarding management. We report the results of a survey completed by 4 fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologists evaluating the accuracy and clarity of various websites that provide information on amblyopia and strabismus.
