Our Amblyopic Intern is Getting Better

This morning our 4th year optometry intern told me that yesterday she asked our senior doctor to refract her and guess what? After four weeks of doing vision therapy activities with our patients - she has been wearing red and green glasses to "wake up" her amblyopic eye when facilitating activities with anti-suppression targets and wearing a patch over her "good" eye when facilitating monocular activities....her best corrected visual acuity in her amblyopic eye has improved significantly. She is surprised and thrilled.

That is great. Not only is she developing her vision, but she is learning a great lesson about vision that she will not likely forget!

I learned a lot when I was a vision therapy patient that I use every day as a vision therapy provider!

Hi Lesly, I am also a vision therapist. One of the best things I have experienced in my twelve years of doing therapy, is watching new therapists develop their own visual skills while performing procedures with their patients! Thank you for sharing this. Ruth

I wish to discuss a bit of great news to any or all person. I obtained a couple free prescription glasses on the internet.
