Dr. Slotnick prioritizes the individual’s needs and goals to prescribe glasses that are not only customized to a person’s visual demands, but also to their lifestyle needs. With an eye towards prevention, she addresses signs of long-range concerns, addressing the source of the problem, not just the symptoms.
Specializing in vision therapy and rehabilitation services, Dr. Slotnick helps patients learn how to make efficient, effective use of their eyes and of visual information.

Good readers use the perceptual skill of visual closure to read more efficiently and fluently. LIKE if you can read this!
This patient with Retinitis Pigmentosa* has had a device implanted which has restored sight in a blind man!
*Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a degeneration of cells in the retina. However, the nerve pathways are not disturbed in RP, making it possible to have light signals transmitted to the brain by existing pathways.
**This is a different problem from glaucoma and other non-glaucomatous optic neuropathies, in which the cells comprising the optic nerve are damaged (retinal ganglion cells).
Children need to PLAY!!!
Looking forward to the Awaken Fair next month!

Dr. Samantha Slotnick I saw b&w front-view first, lady 2nd, white profile last.
Each one requires a changed vantage point, and I catch my gaze centering in different locations for each.

Tom Arnold eye dominance, I wonder?
September 28, 2014 at 3:54 pm
Dr. Samantha Slotnick No, more likely a matter of central/ peripheral integration and figure/ ground perception.

5 Star: Laurie D. "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 ophthalmologist and optometrist, Dr. Slotnick was the only who could give me an accurate diagnosis for my child. We are lucky to have found Dr. Slotnick!" http://on.fb.me/1lVPLZ0
We are all so thrilled with the changes we have seen in Matthew!

Great conference in Birmingham, England. This video gives a great summary of it. Thanks for sharing, Dr. Samantha Slotnick!!
5 Star: Esther D. "Dear Dr. Slotnick,
I know it's a Saturday, but I just wanted to let you know that Julia actually picked up a book yesterday and read it throughout the afternoon and evening. While she didn't seem to think it was such a "big deal" I was very struck by the fact that she was actually enjoying reading. I can count on my fingers the number of times Julia has done this recently. Working with you is truly fascinating and I hope that what I observed with Julia yesterday is just the beginning of a paradigm shift!
Thank you so much for being such an engaging, challenging, and supportive partner." http://bit.ly/1p8m3Ce
Nice surprise, this morning! Len Press has shared my video and activity on his blog post, integrating vision and our surroundings.
Music to my EYES! What an exquisite study!
YES: "Lazy eye" does best when getting the two eyes to play on the SAME TEAM!
Often, kids don't tell their parents when they take a hit to the head. In fact, most athletes don't even realize when they have had a concussion...
But concussions have some very real symptoms, and their effects get compounded on multiple "small events," little bumps to the head, getting one's "bell rung," and certainly from head butting a ball.
Stay informed! Know the signs, and ask the questions!
