Journal Club- Binocular Vision Dysfunction and Visual Vertigo
April 19 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
Join Co-Founder Dr. Helena Esmonde PT, DPT, NCS, Dr. Mark Rosner and Dr. Debby Feinberg as they discuss and take live questions about recent research on the topic of Binocular Vision Dysfunction and Visual Vertigo.
Dr. Mark Rosner is the COO of Vision Specialists of Michigan, a clinic dedicated to the practice of NeuroVisual Medicine, a new optometry specialty focusing on binocular vision / eye misalignment since 2000. He is also Co-Director of the NeuroVisual Medicine Institute’s Training Program, recruiting and training optometrists across the country & world, utilizing innovative optometry tools and knowledge to support growth of students’ practices as well as ultimately help BVD sufferers. Dr. Rosner is a retired Emergency Medicine Physician with more than 30 years of combined experience treating, educating, and researching in emergency medicine at level 1 and 2 facilities.
Dr. Debby Feinberg began practicing Optometry in 1983. Since 1995 Dr. Feinberg has been developing the field of NeuroVisual Medicine which is the optometric subspecialty that identifies and treats neurological / medical symptoms that originate directly or indirectly in the visual system. Dr. Feinberg has been performing pioneering work with Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD), a condition where a vision misalignment (frequently subtle) creates difficulties with the two eyes working together to create a single 3-dimensional image, and difficulties with the two eyes following that image as it moves. In 2004. Dr. Feinberg established Vision Specialists of Birmingham, specifically designing the practice to accommodate the needs of the NeuroVisual Medicine patient and in 2011, the office has since moved and updated its name to Vision Specialists of Michigan.
