The neurology of a vision training technique

Dr Justin Chelette:

The neurology of a vision training technique

Description: This lecture will be a review of the neuro-anatomy involved in the visual process. We will be analyzing the technique called the “near-far Hart chart” and looking at what parts of the brain are involved when performing it. Although commonly used to work accommodation, this technique is much more comprehensive and makes use of saccades, vergence, spatial awareness, decision making, and memory, amongst others. We will be discussing the pathways involved in these processes.

Bio: Dr Chelette is currently an assistant professor at the University of Pikeville - Kentucky College of Optometry. He received his Doctor of Optometry from Nova Southeastern University in 2017 and completed a residency in vision therapy and rehabilitation through the University of Incarnate Word – Rosenberg School of Optometry the following year. Prior to joining academia Dr Chelette was a pediatric optometrist in Texas.
