Visual Foundations and Diagnostics for Patients with Strabismus

Visual Foundations and Diagnostics for Patients with Strabismus

This comprehensive course provides a foundation for relating to patients with strabismus, anisometropia, and other binocular adaptations:
- Explores clinical considerations for analyzing the sensory status of the patient with strabismus.
- Evaluates optometric findings in a sensory processing context.
- Helps the clinician establish a prognosis and an effective plan for strabismus training.
- Introduces the MIT as a diagnostic testing tool. Helps clinicians interpret image projection responses, both normal and anomalous projection.
- Provides extensive recommendations for activities which support processing of visual information over 4 dimensions of space/time.

* Attendance limited to 20.

Outline:
► Thinking in 3 (4) Dimensions
Visual Adaptations
► Case Analysis
Patient-oriented Sensory Assessment
Optometric findings
Sensorimotor interpretation
► Sensory Fusion and Motor Fusion
► Classic model vs behavioral model
► Diagnostics of Visual Projection
MIT/Swirl as a diagnostic tool
Normal and Anomalous Projection (Correspondence)
Assessing Anomalous Projection
Cover Testing
Brock Posture Board Campimetry
Compartmentalized visual perception in strabismus
► Therapeutics: Development of binocular processing
Biofeedback with MIT/Swirl
Flow chart
► Building a 4-D Brain: Vision Therapy techniques for all binocularly-challenged patients.
Harnessing Monocular Depth Cues
Looming: Processing space/time
Multi-sensory Integration Activities
Central-Peripheral Integration Activities
Visual Processing Development in computerized games
Visual Imagery: Visualization and Visual Memory Activities

5 Star: Elisa J. "Wonderful - the staff is always very friendly and helpful as is Dr. Slotnick. They are always happy to see my child and always makes her feel welcome and at ease. Dr. Slotnick is encouraging and accommodating and always creative in her teaching. After visiting an opthalmologist and optometrist, Dr. Slothnick was the only who could gie me an accurate diagnosis for my child. We are lucky to have found Dr. Slotnick!" http://bit.ly/1Fc5flR
