During the first half of the 20th century, pediatricians generally believed that children's eye problems were largely self-corrective - that a child would grow out of his or her crossed eyes or poor vision. But they were wrong. Unless a vision problem is detected and corrected early, the child will have vision problems in that eye for the rest of his or her life. Subsequent studies have shown that 2% to 5% of preschool children have vision problems, many of them not apparent. In the late 1940s, a small group of physicians began to recognize this problem.

Starting this fall, the firm will add another structure to its local résumé with the new Edie and Lew Wasserman Building at UCLA. The six-story, 100,000 square-foot building will serve as a multi-purpose medical facility that houses the Jules Stein Eye Institute as well as departments of the David Geffen School of Medicine.

The Aug. 7 article, "Shades," rightly called attention to the growing realization that sunglasses should provide protection against unnecessary radiation damage, as well as comfort and style. However, this important message was blunted by the implication that the use of sunglasses to protect visual health was primarily a marketing device with little scientific basis. In fact, there is substantial evidence that the high-energy components of sunlight (the ultraviolet and blue radiation)

UCLA's basketball team received more bad news, as freshman forward Reeves Nelson underwent laser surgery on his left eye to repair a slight tear in his retina. Nelson will be reevaluated Wednesday to determine whether he will be able to play against Oregon State on Thursday. He injured his right eye Thursday, when he landed face-first on the court against Washington State, opening a gash that required 15 stitches. "The retinal tear was very far from his central and meaningful peripheral vision and will not affect his ability to see the court," Dr. Steven Schwartz said in a statement.

Pierre Cabrol, an architect with Welton Becket and Associates who was the lead designer for the Cinerama Dome and other projects, died Oct. 8 at his home in Los Angeles, his family said. He was 84 and had dementia. From 1957 to 1987 Cabrol worked for Becket, the noted Los Angeles architect whose designs include the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood and the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles. Cabrol, who had worked for innovative architect R. Buckminster Fuller while attending graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, used Fuller's geodesic dome concept for the modernist movie palace that opened on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood in 1963.
