The Neuroadaptation and Perceptual Learning model discussed by Dr. Kershner is a perfect example of behavioral ophthalmology derived from behavioral optometry. The optometrists Ciuffreda, Levi, and Selenow should be appropriately credited for introducing this model, 19 years ago in their seminal, co-authored book on Amblyopia. In selling their concept to colleagues, Kershner (as well as Drs. McDonald and Lindstrom, the two ophthalmologists cited at the end of the article as having a financial… Continue

One of the "controversies" that allegedly exists in the optometric prescribing of vision therapy and "low power lenses" is that our professional judgment is clouded by financial incentives. That claim, leveled by critics of vision therapy, has never been proven and remains anecdotal. Our principal critics are, of course, ophthalmologists who seem not at all bothered by the paradox of using anecdotal claims to criticize us because we supposedly rely on anecdotal evidence.
