Husband and wife team Stan Appelbaum, OD, FCOVD, and Barbara Bassin, OTR/L, BCP, are truly one of a kind. The board-certified vision therapist and board-certified pediatric occupational therapist work together in the same practice, offering patients both optometric vision therapy and sensory-integration-oriented occupational therapy.
It may seem overwhelming to add optometric vision therapy to an already full schedule, noted Appelbaum, but for many people with learning problems, movement and balance difficulties, eyestrain and fatigue while reading, ADHD and autism spectrum disorder, vision therapy has been the key to significant improvement.
Vision therapy, to put it frankly, is a kind of occupational or physical therapy for the eyes and brain. Take peek at a few typical treatment sessions here in our online photo gallery.
