I always hold my breath when a freelance reporter does an over-the-phone interview about vision therapy, because you never know in advance what will emerge from the final editing process. That is why I was pleased to see VT 101 by writer Corrie Pelc this morning in the June 2014 online edition of EyeCareProfessional Magazine. You can read the piece in its entirety here, and I’d like to point out some highlights to you:
1. It’s important to remind people that VT is very much mainstream within the Clinical Practice Guidelines of the American Optometric Association.
2. COVD and OEP continue to offer valuable continuing education opportunities.
3. As Dr. Maino and I point out, vision therapy is not just for kids. Adult visual needs extend to learning both in adult education classes, and in other facets of activities of daily living.
4. The modern epidemic of acquired brain injury, responsive to vision therapy, cuts across all lines as well.
5. Working with a mentor or professional coach can be very valuable for doctors in acquiring greater skills.
