Overview

Although we are commonly tested for sight, which we are born with, our vision, which involves the interplay between eyes and brain, is too often ignored. What's more, better vision can be learned. Now, Dr. Arthur Seiderman and Dr. Steven Marcus reveal the astonishing new advances in vision therapy that can significantly reduce eye strain, improve concentration, enhance peripheral vision, depth perception, visual reaction time, and much more.

Discover the revolutionary new treatments that can help:
— Children and students who have undetected learning disabilities, about 70% of which result from vision disorders
— Adults whose jobs require intensive, close work
— Drivers whose vision deficiencies make them dangerous on the road
— Athletes who are not performing to their full potential
— Older people who are unnecessarily handicapped by weakened vision

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Two noted optometrists discuss the promise of vision therapy, the nonsurgical treatment of vision disorders such as nearsightedness, vision-based learning disabilities, and strabismus. Remarkable case histories illustrate that vision--as opposed to sight--is a learned activity; hence, people of all ages can be trained to have better vision skills for reading, driving, video display terminal use, sports, and general health through exercises, biofeedback, and other methods. Curiously, the authors scarcely discuss the therapeutic procedures unique to this little-known modality. Still, an interesting discussion. Recommended for public libraries.-- Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.

What a great book for plastic surgeons / dentists and most importantly teachers who care for students. It really imparts the right understanding of the importance of good seeing and how it might be enhanced. Very well done.
