Learning the physical practices of monocular, biocular and binocular procedures was easy. I was told that my convergence was improving. I could physically see that the letters were jumping less in the words. My memory for what I was reading increased.
Then one day, under a moment of distress, and feeling out of control, one of the greatest realisations of my visual rehabilitation program occurred. My vision therapist, Dr. Roberto Pepper, had me process tachistoscopic numbers flashed… Continue

A recent study published in an Ophthalmological Journal
draws a strong relationship between Intermittent Exotropia in children and later in life behaviour that is considered a mental disorder.

When I started administering vision therapy, I was very focused on the technique and what vision skill I was training.

You may ask, what is Integrated Vision Therapy?
After many years of doing conventional vision therapy, my patients confronted me for explanations why their eyesight kept getting worse. For me this question became an invitation. To look beyond my techniques and go into the human part of the patient, their intimate lives, their perceptions. I did this and discovered the most amazing relationships.
