Rachel Pilling’s Curious Mechanic Video

Paediatric Ophthalmologist Rachel Pilling tells the short story of the Curious Mechanic.

The Tale of the Curious Mechanic: "A simple way to describe CVI, using the driver and car to represent the different roles of the eye and the brain in vision. A model to encourage curiosity about both what a child sees and how a child sees."

Some of the most complex areas of CVI are simply explained in this light and fun six-minute video.
