NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR VISION CORRECTION?
I will take up to an hour to figure out the best prescriptions for your glasses and contacts. Whatever you need to optimize performance and comfort with your vision correction. Not every patient gets the same Rx with the same findings. It depends on each person’s performance needs for comfort, working distances, depth of field, and lifestyle. I use a retinascope with my own eyes to do part of the refraction instead of a computerized autorefractor. I also perform perform refractions at your reading, computer distances, and others as needed. You will either leave with a better prescription or be convinced the one you have is the best that can be done. Come in having measured distances you need to optimize.
IMPROVE SPORTS PERFOMANCE
I have raised batting averages and other sports performance measures with my vision training consultations and EYE PERFORMANCE training systems. The Minnesota Twins and Cardinals minor leagues, pro football, golf, tennis players, etc. Just take a look at my website(s)
Some students have visual skills problems affecting tracking, reading fluency, comprehension, and copying off the board. These problems are generally missed in routine eye exams and pediatrician screenings.
CONCUSSION VISION REHABILITATION
Vision problems not having to do with reading eye charts are commonly underdiagnosed in this population. Reading performance, sports performance, and just plain not feeling like your vision is right is common after concussions. I consult at numerous rehab settings as well as Nicklaus Childrens Hospital where it is felt that vision rehab is the missing link in concussion rehab.
STROKE VISION REHABILITATION
Balancing problems and misjudging where things are common after strokes. Again I consult at rehab hospitals and centers for these problems that have little to do with the eye chart. I have eight hours of board approved education courses in these areas for occupational, physical therapists as well as nursing. Special yoked prism lens prescribing and vision exercises are used to aid balance, navigation and reaching for things in the right place. Often these conditions go undiagnosed and untreated in routine eye exams.
RISK MANAGEMENT AND SAFETY
Visual skills training has been proven to reduce car accidents and keep senior drivers on the road longer before they have to retire their keys. I have delivered visual skills training lectures and training to Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office including SWAT Team training as well as lectures at law enforcement conference. I have consulted FAU and area rehab hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and OT/PT practices in visual skills testing and training falls prevention in the elderly. In fact weakened visual skills is prevalent and more of a risk factor for falls in the elderly than cataracts or macular degeneration. Again these are grossly underdiagnosed in eye exams that only look at how one reads a chart and the health of the organ.
