Thanks to Dr. Curt Baxtrom for sharing the YouTube video of a very nice interview with Dr. Sam Berne, a behavioral optometrist in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I had the pleasure of sharing time with Dr. Berne several years ago in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, when we were on a lecture program together for COMOF. The interview is wide ranging, and in watching it I was reminded how much Dr. Berne was influenced by his professional training at The Gesell Institute of Child Devleopment in New Haven during its halcyon days with Drs. Appell, Streff, and Sutton. Dr. Berne has taken holistic care in optometry to new heights, as evidenced in this interview. Enjoy!
