Glaucoma Service Foundation Launches New Website

On Friday, July 27, 2012, the Glaucoma Service Foundation to Prevent Blindness launched it’s new website with a new logo in place. The new website enables the Foundation to blog about the latest news, research, chat highlights and events using a PC, MAC, smart phone or tablet from anywhere at any time.  Visitors will notice at the top of every page,  they have the ability to re-size the font on the website.  When designing the website , we factored in that web browsers have the ability to maginfy websites and many low vision patients use that specific web browser feature.  The new website uses responsive website design, meaning it was designed with smart phone users and tablet users in mind, making for optimal viewing on smart devices.   Another new feature is visitors can now subscribe to RSS (really simple syndication) feeds. Visitors can now comment on posts and follow posts for additional comments.  We encourage our visitors to provide feedback and follow our posts. The website redesign team was headed up by Rita Stern (Program Director). Rita was the glue that kept everything together and moving forward.  Also, on the team was Rob Kump, Roger Barone,  and our webmaster,  Vivian Werner.  We hope our visitors like the new interactive website.
