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.

Binocular vision helps us with learning and activities, but it also helps us keep our world stable.
Are we doing enough to help our seniors stay on their feet?
A bit beyond the scope of our training...
OCTOBER is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month!
Have you heard about the relationship between Convergence Insufficiency and Attention Deficit Disorder?
"Gattuso had been experiencing vision problems in early September 2011, a few days before the season kicked off. On 9 September 2011, Gattuso crashed into teammate Alessandro Nesta whilst playing against Lazio in Milan's opening Serie A game of the 2011–12 season. He was substituted off directly afterwards in the 20th minute and diagnosed with paralysis of the sixth cranial nerve, resulting in diplopia (double vision) in his left eye, an injury that could have ended his football career. He later revealed that he had seen teammate Zlatan Ibrahimović in four different positions during the opening stages of the match, and was unable to see Nesta, resulting in the pair's clash."
It could have ended his football career. But it didn't, because he rehabilitated under the guidance of an Italian optometrist.

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 Secondary question: which one do you see first? last?
September 28, 2014 at 2:39 pm

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 2:54 pm
Dr. Samantha Slotnick No, more likely a matter of central/ peripheral integration and figure/ ground perception.
