Clinical Seminars » Optometric & Syntonic Phototherapy

Neuro-Optometry plays a major role in neuro-rehabilitation of visual dysfunction especially following brain injury, but also with more common systemic illnesses like high fevers or ear infections. A medical history of these conditions as well as other stress-related syndromes can reveal potential imbalances in the autonomic nervous and endocrine systems, which can impact myriad visual […]

Clinical Seminars » Expanded and updated seminar: In’s and Outs of TBI/ ABI/ Stroke and overall brain injury

A review of structural and functional results of stroke and other brain injuries. The series will include six 2-hour lectures covering essential definitions, statistics, epidemiology, signs and symptoms, urgent versus emergent issues, neuroanatomy, the impact of visual deficits on function, neuro-imaging, tips to maximize your optometric evaluation, treatment modalities, and plans. The final 2-hour block […]

Clinical Seminars » Follow-up to Multisensory Model Neurological Implications for Improved Optometric Success and Treatment

12- hour course presented in two six-hour lectures. We live in a highly sensory world in which we are continually bombarded with information from each of our different senses. Although optometry has attempted to isolate visual skills for diagnosis and treatment, the latest research indicates that we learn more effectively with multisensory integration mechanisms that […]
