I am always fielding questions about the difference between Behavioral Optometrists and Pediatric Ophthalmologists. In fact, I spend much of my day “defending” Optometry from the relentless attack on Vision Therapy’s credibility launched by most Ophthalmologists. While I personally understand the argument — and side with Optometry — it is important to PAVE that you understand the differences as well.
Many folks get overwhelmed trying to compare the “apples and oranges” of vision care. I found a GREAT website that explains many FAQ’s on why Behavioral Vision is so important, and why Vision Therapy really works.
Feel free to read the entire page. There is some great information about several topics related to Behavioral Vision Care. If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
