When I'm away....
Many of my clients know that I travel to different places quite often. Naturally, some of these travels are of personal nature, but I am 'out of town' more frequently for congresses.
In the 10 years since opening Orthovision, my team of Vision Therapists and I have supported thousands of children and adults to obtain better vision. As a result, I am often invited to be a speaker at Symposiums or International Ophthalmic and Orthoptic Conferences.
In last 15 months, I have been an invited faculty at the Orthoptic d.e.c.o.d.e.d. in Madurai (India), organised by the Aravind Eye Care System, that was very well attended.
I would suggest seeing this video to learn more about the Aravind Eye Care System.
In June 2016, I was an invited speaker at the International Council of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (IPOSC) and was talking about the rare form of strabismus that was corrected non-surgically at Orthovision.
In December 2016 I was again an invited faculty at the American Academy of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus to present how certain Orthoptic techniques could enhance binocular vision - the use of both eyes together - and enhance learning as well as attention in children with lazy eye.
After speaking at many conferences, I am thankful that Orthoptic Vision Therapy is obtaining its deserved position as a treatment modality in visual eye-care. Numerous participants of these conferences are very interested and happy to discuss what we do at Orthovision. In addition to that, new friendships are formed at these conferences that are extremely valuable for the support of our clients.
This June, I will be speaking at the International Orthoptics Association Symposium in Lisbon - the topic of the symposium is '50 years of Orthoptics: Past, Present and Future Directions'.
