Last night I attended the COVD (College of Optometrists in Vision Development) club meeting and enjoyed it. Dr. Bob Hohendorf from Michigan was the speaker. He gave some case presentations and discussed how he has helped some of his young patients to succeed in school after struggling due to visual problems. He discussed how lenses can help as well as vision therapy.
I'm sure there are countless youngsters out there who perform poorly in school due to visual problems that could be helped by optometrists. It was neat to hear about the progress these students made through working with this optometrist. I'm not sure yet if I would like to specialize in vision therapy but I can certainly see how it would be a rewarding field to work in.
