My mission is to bring high quality developmental optometry, vision therapy, and neuro-optometric rehabilitation services to the greater Brooklyn community.
Did you know that 1 in 4 children have a learning-related vision problem preventing them from using their eyes and visual system comfortably and efficiently? Unfortunately, problems with tracking, eye alignment, and focusing are not always detected, even during a standard eye exam! Symptoms overlap with those of ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning disabilities, and can make it difficult for kids (and adults!) to reach their full potential.
In this digital age, even subtle problems can lead to eye strain, headaches, and lost productivity over time.
These functional visual problems occur much more commonly and severely after concussion, stroke or neurological disease. Brooklyn Vision Therapy is the only practice offering neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy in a borough with more than 2 million residents.
BVT is also the first practice in NYC prescribing virtual-reality based vision therapy for home to make therapy more accessible and engaging!
The specialized equipment needed for this therapy is expensive (think VR headsets, 3D televisions, etc); This is a big reason why more VT practices don't exist in NYC, despite huge unmet need. Your help will allow me to provide the highest standard of care. With enough funding, I also hope to offer sliding scale pricing, as vision therapy is rarely covered by medical insurance.
Thank you for your support!
