The Eye Cancer Network
Gone are the days when medical patients and their families were at a loss for information, save the occasional visit with their physicians. One of many websites aimed at facilitating discussions between patients, their families, and physicians, the Eye Cancer Network (the website for The Eye Cancer Foundation) provides a great deal of educational information in easy-to-understand language. Much of this information can be found on the “conditions and treatment” page, where site visitors can search by keyword. Another useful page for patients and their families is the “inspiration and support” page, which contains patient testimonials and words of encouragement. Other aspects of the site—such as the “news and events” and “find a doctor” pages—are nice in concept, but are somewhat underdeveloped to be of much use at the present time.
