How 3D Movies Identify Common ADD and Vision Dysfunctions

When a child or adult, struggles with the 3D movie experience, it can often be a warning sign that there is a greater vision problem occurring. Our two eyes are supposed to work together as a team to perceive depth. When our two eyes are unable to work together efficiently, there is a common binocular vision dysfunction occurring that can affect reading, learning, coordination abilities, sustained attention and can often masquerade as ADD. If you or your child experience headaches, double vision, eye strain or motion sickness at a 3D movie, schedule a comprehensive vision evaluation at Wow Vision Therapy in St. Joseph, MI and Grand Rapids, MI.

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

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!
Powerful article...

Most children don’t tell their parents every time they happen to bump their head, even though a head injury might change their life. While one small bump is really not the issue, new research shows that it is the accumulation of these bumps that can cause more serious problems.

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,
