RCS: The Optometrist's Guide to Strabismus: Reorganizing Space, Time and the Visual Process

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.
* As management strategies presented here begin in the exam room, we recommend therapists wanting to attend do so with their optometrists.


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

Dr. Samantha Slotnick shared Heartland Eye Consultants's post.

Great success story!

Give me more school work, please. Can you imagine your child saying that to you or their teacher. Neither did his mother, but after vision therapy the dream is reality. See their story below:

Robert: "In 3rd grade I was in the back of the classroom. When I looked at the smartboard I couldn't concentrate on the board. This year in 4th grade I can concentrate on the board really good. My eye homework was difficult when I started therapy. At the end it was easier. I am getting better at looking for stuff at home. I am reading at school. In 3rd grade I was mad when I was in class. This year in class I am really happy."

Patty: "When we were told that Robert needed Therapy I was not convinced that it would help him at all. As he went through therapy I was excited to see that his testing with Dr. Vicky was going way up. The biggest improvement or thing that I see in him is that he does not have break downs in school anymore. Before he started he would get so frustrated that he would cry to his teacher. Since therapy has ended the teacher said he has not cried once. The teacher even said that when she tells him that he does not have to do so many problems as everyone else, he tells her that he wants to do them all. This would have never happened before he started therapy."

5 Star: Xari S. "What appeals to me most, besides the deep comprehension- the own - of the subjet of strabismus, it's the empathy and the passion she is having that inevitably communicates with her audience and carry it away in the strabismus world making it tangible. What was really fascinating was to understand the great capacity/intelligence of the brain (of a person with strabismus) to adapt and that ultimately strabismus is NOT a defect, the eye misalignment is the symptom not the origin of the problem and we can help by treating the underlying problem, which is the disorganization and confusion in the visual process, with an integrated perspective on the entire global visual process. So simple because it makes SENSE!" http://bit.ly/1TeZxVC
