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.
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!
We're all pretty excited about the email we received this morning from the mother of a 15 year old patient, 3 weeks into her vision therapy program:
"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.
Michael Lievens Awesome, I'm saving this :)

She is always energetic and motivated to help me ( and other patients as I have observed) to do better and use my eyes in a more coordinated way. Dr. Slotnick does not seem to be in a hurry to finish her consultation with me and is pretty detailed in her approach. Very comfortable environment." http://bit.ly/1p8m3Ce

Since he started therapy his self-confidence has skyrocketed, he is now enjoying group sports, riding his bike, playing with words, enjoying good grades, showing how smart he is and doing his homework in a timely manner. What a difference from 9 nine month ago." http://on.fb.me/1lVPLZ0
