  1. Hi Mr. Maino,
    I am training to be a Vision Therapist under my mother here in Virginia. We were browsing Youtube to see what material was out here when we came across your tutorial for the lifesaver cards. We're very impressed with the quality of the video and I'm looking forward to checking out what other work you have done online.
    Keep up the great Work.
