Advances in Amblyopia Treatments

Watch Dr. Frazer’s webinar that explores the ins and outs of amblyopia, dispel common treatment myths and uncover innovative treatment options including Vivid Vision virtual reality!

According to recent studies, over 12 million people in the United States alone are diagnosed with amblyopia… that’s about 3.5% of the US population.

Standard treatment options generally include endless hours of patching or Atropine drops, which have many visual and emotional consequences and low prolonged success rates.

Good news! There are advanced treatment options that are evidence-based and can be effective at any age.

During this webinar, Dr. Frazer explains:

  • Why amblyopia develops.
  • Why patching alone is not always effective.
  • The importance of binocular vision in treatment.
  • New advances in amblyopia treatment including Vivid Vision.

“Seeing Success: How Identifying and Treating Undetected Vision Problems Can Improve Reading and Learning”                                                                                           Presented by Valerie Frazer, Developmental Optometrist

child-studying Presentation Overview:
Does your child struggle in school or avoid reading?

Is homework a battle or take twice as long as it should?

Does your child lose their place when they read, have poor comprehension or poor handwriting?

One in four children lack the visual skills necessary to succeed in school and children labeled as ADHD or Learning Disabled are 3x more likely to have one of these treatable visual dysfunctions that can interfere with learning. Most people think that 20/20 vision is enough. They don’t realize that there are 17 visual skills needed to succeed in reading, learning, sports and in life and seeing ‘20/20’ is just one of those visual skills. Dr. Frazer will discuss when a child should have their vision checked and symptoms of common visual dysfunctions that can interfere with learning or lead to poor behavior. She will also discuss simple ways to make things easier at school/home and current research on treatment options.

Join us for this FREE Event on Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 from 7:00-8:00 pm.

Located at the Waunakee Village Center

Concussion, starring Will Smith, hit theaters in December. The drama which is based on real events, brings attention to the seriousness of concussions acquired by athletes in contact sports such as football.
Vision problems after a concussion are very common. Many professional sports are using simple visual testing on the sidelines to help determine if a player should return to the game.
“Research has shown that approximately 70% of young athletes who suffer a concussion have eye coordination, focusing, and eye movement problems. Yet most parents are left on their own to choose a health care professional who can help their child correct these problems,” shares Dr. Kara Heying, OD, FCOVD, President of College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
