Happy Sunday! A great lecture this morning about autism and where vision fits in the journey (lack of eye contact is the most common complaint!). Always love learning about how we can do more to help our special populations. This was my favourite lecture this weekend
Dr Lee and your wonderful vision therapists were out of the office for two jam-packed days of lectures at COVD Canada! It was such a treat for Dr. Lee and Genevieve to learn about Vision and Learning from 2 amazing past presidents of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, Dr Lynn Hellerstein (author of the award-winning See It, Say It, Do It book) and Dr Nancy Torgerson (2015 Washington Physician of the Year).
At the same time, Britt got extensive training in acquired brain injuries and concussion from Dr Curt Baxstrom (Vice President of the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association). We love learning and staying on the cutting-edge of best practices that will help our patients!
Scroll through this list of our fallen heroes, and Telus will donate $5 to The Royal Canadian Legion on your behalf. It really puts the human sacrifice into perspective. #LestWeForget
This is a very common question that we get, and the answer is that vision therapy does NOT treat dyslexia. However, functional vision problems can certainly get in the way of reading and learning, and that’s what vision therapy treats. Watch this video for a more detailed explanation!

Never buy costume contact lenses from the store – it’s not worth the risk of permanent vision loss for one night. If you want to wear coloured lenses, get them from a Doctor of Optometry!
