Neuro-Vision Associates of North Texas: Vision Rehabilitation and Therapy In Plano, Texas
Charles Shidlofsky, O.D. FCOVD and Associates are pleased to present a new concept in vision care. As with most eye care practices, we want you to be able to see 20/20. However, we take it well beyond 20/20 by evaluating how you process information, your visual perception ability and how your vision integrates with your other senses. We utilize state-of-the art equipment so that your eyes receive the best possible care.
Our optometrists’ serve patients with pediatric and developmental vision issues such as learning related vision problems, amblyopia, strabismus, developmental delay, autism spectrum disorders and genetic disorders. We also treat vision problems as a result of neurological injury such as concussion, stroke (CVA), traumatic brain injury and other neurological insults. In addition, we offer myopia management for children as well as sports vision training.
Please contact us to schedule your appointment in Plano, Texas today.
Vision is fundamentally a function of the brain. The way we process depth, direction, speed, and color contrast all comes down to how the brain interprets the information the eyes provide.
Read Dr. Shidlofsky's interview about Myopia Management
Myopia in children is a growing concern, especially with so many kids learning virtually during the pandemic. Myopia is a disease where the eye grows too long, with the symptom being blurry distance vision. Studies show that myopia rates in children are increasing as kids spend less time outdoors and more time involved in near work like digital device use.
How Does Lumenis Optilight IPL Treatment Work?
The primary cause of dry eye syndrome is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), which occurs when the oil-producing meibomian glands are clogged up and unable to produce a healthy tear film. The oil is crucial as it stops your tear film from evaporating too rapidly.
During the Optilight IPL procedure, the heat emanating from the light helps liquify and release oils that have hardened and clogged the meibomian glands in the eyelids, thus reducing blockages that cause dry eye symptoms and improving the quality of your tears.
