Send Ali to Ntl. Invention Conv.!

I, Alisha Davidson, am very excited to have qualified for the National Invention Convention in Michigan, but I need your help to get there.  My invention is a rigid gas permeable contact that is dyed black in the center the size of a pupil to prevent the need for an eye patch treatment of Amblyopia (lazy eye).  The rate of depression that comes with the treatment with a patch is around 40-50% among pre-teens and teenagers. The contact makes it more difficult for other children to detect the child's treatment of Amblyopia.  My goal is to develop my idea so that pre-teens and teenagers are not teased or bullied due to the eye patch treatment of Amblyopia.  Thank you for your help!
