His “Hypertracking” and “Phorometric Balance” techniques are able to address the most challenging visual conditions. These concepts are not yet realized in general optometric and opthamological practice. Sometimes coupled with vision therapy, these special prism and lens prescriptions off relief from conditions including:

• Reading and tracking problems

• Double vision

• Chronic headaches and migraine

• Poor Balance, motion sickness and vertigo

• “Dyslexia” and “ADD/ADHD – Attention Deficit Disorder” (often misdiagnosed and having a visual basis)

• Concussion, TBI, Stroke

• Autistic Spectrum, Vertigo, Lazy Eye, Sensory Processing Disorder, Sports Vision
