School is out soon, but learning never ends!

Updated: Oct 12

The science of brain plasticity is abundant with new ideas! Dr. Green and I just returned from the NORA (Neuro-Optometric



We learned new ways to interpret the information from the VEP (Visual-Evoked Potential), a specialized form of EEG that actually measures the brainwaves created by visual input. It tells us how much visual signal is getting through, and how strong that signal is. We’ve also learned that it can give us information about what the brain is doing when it’s waiting for the visual signal, and how we can change that with specialized lenses.


The VEP is appropriate for any neurological insult; strabismus, amblyopia, and some other vision disorders. If you’d like more information or would like to know if you are a candidate, please email me or call (301) 951-0320.


Another great new learning opportunity is on the horizon. In June, I will be attending a workshop outside of Chicago where I will be learning about Syntonic Phototherapy. This is a technique in which specific wavelengths of light are used to change the person’s nervous system response and can greatly augment vision therapy. You may be familiar with how Seasonal  Affective Disorder is treated with a special light; this is a similar concept but much more specifically tailored to the individual.
