Assistance Through Technology

I also have the opportunity    Divine Vision 12  to be creative with regards vision therapy, designing new and innovative therapies, exercises and games to help children with learning disabilities reach their full potential in the classroom. These have become very successful and we have seen amazing improvement among the children who have pursued these therapies, and vision therapy remains a central part of my practice which is both creative and radically different from my peers.

Amazingly, I made it through grade school, high school and university with a focusing and eye coordination problem that limited the amount of time I could concentrate on near objects. I found myself dividing my study time up into 20 minute slices, so I would study for 20 minutes then have a drink, study another 20 minutes before going to the bathroom, and so on. I even made it through optometry school having my eyes tested a dozen times, always being told I was not long sighted and therefore my eyes were perfect.

However, when I became interested in Behavioural Optometrist, I discovered that my unusual study habits were due to focusing and eye coordination difficulties that had remained undetected in my regular vision test. I've returned from my first Behavioural Optometrist seminar to my own practice, made up of different pair of reading glasses, and these radically changed my life! I can now sit at a computer all read for hours as a result of the special lenses I was able to prescribe once I recognised the problem.

If you spend long hours on the computer you may experience dry eyes, eye strain, headaches and blurred vision. These symptoms are known as computer vision syndrome and result in various vision problems if some type of protective treatment is not used. The most common type of protective treatment for computer users are computer glasses. Computer glasses are special glasses designed for making working on computers safer and more comfortable and they protect your eyes in a variety of ways.
