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.
Dr. Samantha Slotnick shared Chitralekha's video.
Please be careful when selecting "entertainment" for infants. As this video shows all too clearly, there are overly stimulating properties that make it difficult for *anyone* to put down the smartphone.
This is not a baby toy, and should not be used as a convenient distraction with infants and children.
Screen time is devoid of the three- dimensional visual-motor learning opportunities which stimulate cognitive and social development.
Please consider the (mis)behavioral and developmental consequences of the premature use of touchscreens.
Pretty sensational technology from Google, allowing you to translate the world, real time!
Spatial thinking and planning are valuable visual processing skills, which we may develop with practice and experience.
When technology enables us to bypass thinking and planning opportunities, our brains literally atrophy from underuse.
Digital maps are terrific and convenient, but no substitute for being oriented!
Dr. Slotnick is a star! She takes the time necessary to clearly assess my "state of vision" and any update me on potential behavioral issues which may impact my eye sight. I really enjoy learning and spending time with her throughout my visit, and always leave 110% satisfied! 5 stars...as usual! :)
Dr. Samantha Slotnick Thank you, Jeff! I appreciate your confidence in me, for so many years!
It is our pleasure, as always....

Learning is the process of creating filters for what we see ... so that we can react more efficiently when presented with similar information in the future.
We modify our reaction speed with anticipation of what to look for.
In other words:
"Eyes don't tell people what they see... People tell eyes what to look for."
Lawrence MacDonald, optometrist, 1960s
Research is catching up... see below.
In case you were curious about the alphabet soup of Optometry...
Sometimes parents make the best observers of their own children...
Interesting case study to that point, where parent-observation facilitated a life-saving diagnosis in an infant.
Is it REALLY ADHD?

She practices in an evidence-based manner, which is very difficult to find in this field. Her work is substantive, not just for show. My husband and I very much appreciate her dedication, attentiveness and work with our son." http://bit.ly/1K4yoBu
