Neuro-Vision Associates of North Texas: Specialists in 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.

We 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 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.

What Our Patients Have to Say....
Q&A | Eye Nutrition with Dr. Shidlofsky
What are some foods I could eat to keep my eyes healthy?

Foods rich in vitamins C and E, lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, zinc and omega-3 fatty acids would be helpful. Here are some examples: Vitamin C citrus fruits, berries, tomatoes and broccoli Vitamin E vegetable oils, wheat germ, nuts and legumes Lutein and zeaxanthin Beta-carotene carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato and spinach Zinc oysters, beef and other meats, nuts Omega-3 fatty acids kale, spinach, broccoli, peas, corn, colored bell peppers cold-water fish (sardines, herring, salmon and tuna. esp wild-caught)

What benefit does taking fish oil have on my eyes?

Fish oil, also known as omega 3 fatty acids, have fabulous anti-inflammatory properties. High quality triglyceride forms of fish oil are absorbed by the body and can help reduce inflammation throughout the whole body, but more specifically the eyes. Dry eyes are the most common symptom of inflammation that affects the front part of the eyes causing blurred vision, watering, redness, itching, and the feeling of "grit" or trash in the eye. PRN Nutraceuticals is the brand that we recommend and sell in our office. The daily recommended dose of omega 3's is at least 2000 mg and should be taken with a meal for proper absorption.

Are carrots really good for my eyes? Are there other foods that are beneficial for my vision health?

Carrots are a good source of Vitamin A which is necessary to produce rhodopsin, the pigment that detects light in your photoreceptors and helps with night vision. However, the leafy green vegetables such as kale, spinach, and broccoli are also important to maintain healthy eyesight. The green vegetables provide lutein and other important nutrients that help prevent macular degeneration, the most common cause of vision loss later in life.
