Great presentation this afternoon at the COVD Annual Meeting by Lea Hyvarinen, M.D., from Finland, my all-time favorite developmental/behavioral ophthalmologist. Alright, she may be the world’s only developmental/behavioral ophthalmologist, but she is so good at what she does that it would be wonderful if she could influence her colleagues in the United States to follow suit.
Dr. Hyvarinen’s presentation was titled: Early Detection, Assessment and Intervention of Problems in Visual Development: Optometrists’ and rehabilitation ophthalmologists’ role in the transdisciplinary team work. She wrote a wonderful book that captures her approach that you can obtain here.
You can obtain more information on her subject matter through these online resources:
