20/20 Is Not Enough!
Carl G. Hillier, OD FCOVD
La Jolla LearningWorks is sponsoring an important webinar on how to establish efficient visual learning when accessing academic instruction on-line.
You will learn how to:
- Manage On-Line Visual Stress
- Improve On-Line Visual Endurance
- Enhance On-Line Visual Learning
The development of academic skills is more and more dependent upon accessing teachers via an electronic interface – our computers. When using a computer, the doorway to learning is primarily accessed through the child’s visual system.
Opening the on-line doorway to learning is absolutely essential. This means ensuring that the visual system can “access the academic experience.” There is a myth that “20/20 eyesight” is sufficient for a child to access visual information – nothing could be further from the truth.
20/20 eyesight simply means you can see clearly far away, it says nothing about your child’s ability, skill or endurance to focus up close, to move their eyes and track along a line of print while reading, or to have the ability to have both eyes easily align on the screen or to process and remember what they see.
This webinar will provide practical and easily applied concrete methods to enhance your child’s ability access to the educational experience offered on-line. The webinar will review the physical and visual environment your child is in while engaged with on-line learning. It will review the importance of lighting, blue-blocking glasses, optimal computer screens, nutritional support for the extended exposure of light hitting the retina, and eye exercises that can minimize if not eliminate visual stress from extended computer use.
SDBIF June Online Zoom Saturday Meeting — Vision, the Brain and Vision Therapy
Vision Resides In The Brain
Recovering visual abilities after brain injury involves reestablishing brain function. In large part this is accomplished through Optometric Vision Rehabilitation with a Neuro-Optometrist.
Recovery requires a team approach of many professionals, working in collaboration with each other. This lecturer will review the wonderful ways visual abilities can be recovered through lenses, prisms, tints, phototherapy and other therapeutic interventions through Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation.
