Who Should Attend this Webinar? If you work with individuals who experience vision loss, learning more about what Optometric Vision Therapy is, and isn’t, may prove to be very beneficial. Providing resources to others, understanding the strengths and limitations of Optometric Vision Therapy and those whom it may benefit, and how the profession can be supported and reinforced through other professions are some of the reasons why this webinar will be beneficial.  

What is Optometric Vision Therapy? According to the AOA, it is “a sequence of neurosensory and neuromuscular activities individually prescribed and monitored by the doctor to develop, rehabilitate and enhance visual skills and processing.”
