Did you see Avatar in 3-D?

If not, you're not alone. According to one study up to 56% of 18 - 38 year olds have some type of problem with binocular vision. All they saw was a flat 2-dimensional picture. For some it was uncomfortable while others don't realize what they are missing. But with vision therapy, this problem can be alleviated. Recently Dr. Susan Barry, professor of neurobiology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Mount Holyoke College, wrote of her vision therapy experience. At the age of 48 she was able to attain stereo vision (or depth perception) for the first time. 

Fixing My Gaze was published in June of last year and details the dramatic change that 3-D vision made in Dr. Barry's life.

We've been busy!

Over the holidays we renovated our Low Vision room. For anyone not familiar with this term, here is a good definition:

Low Vision is a vision impairment that significantly impacts the functioning of the patient and cannot be improved either medically or with conventional spectacles/contact lenses. It may present as a decrease of acuity, field loss or distorted vision. The patient may also have problems with contrast (contrast sensitivity) or extreme light sensitivity.

There are things that can be done to greatly enhance the quality of life for a Low Vision patient. If you or someone you know is affected by this, we can help.
