A collection of important optometric literature contributions by Nathan Flax, O.D., Volume 1 contains: Case Analysis, Prescribing & Treatment and Vision & Learning.
When presenting the Skeffington Award for Optometric Writing to Nathan Flax, Dr. Elliott Forrest, stated: “ ... the recipient has the ability to formulate ideas ... the ability to look at things in a special way and see relationships that others overlook. Like Skeffington, he has the ability to sense the valuable from the valueless. This year’s recipient has written many papers. Each has been a noteworthy contribution in its own right. The subjects are varied yet the finished product is often so erudite that many of his writings have become position papers for particular issues. Dr. Flax happens to be one of the few individuals in behavioral optometry whose point of view is respected equally by classically-oriented optometrists, academicians and basic scientists. The reason for this is that his terms are always carefully defined and his ideas are well thought out, referenced and clearly communicated.”
Dr. Martin Birnbaum wrote regarding Dr. Flax’s articles: “ ... clearly and lucidly presents a rational, logical model for the practitioner seeking to understand and predict relationships between clinical optometric findings and symptoms of learning difficulty. Over the years your contributions to the literature in this area have been extremely important in organizing and synthesizing the information in a very complex field, and in shaping the thinking of behavioral optometrists.”
