This weekend, Dr. Nate, Dr. Beth and vision therapists took a trip to Miami Beach to attend the 6th Annual Florida COVD Study Group. Dr. Nate is one of the founding members of the group and usually goes each summer to listen, lecture, and discuss the very latest treatments for patients.
The talks were very good. Bob Orsillo, OD spoke about about sports vision enhancement. Dr. John Kuluz from Miami Children's Neurology Dept spoke about sports-related concussion. Dr. Matthew Kay, South Florida's leading neuro-ophthalmologist, spoke about double vision.
Dr. Beth and Dr. Nate gave a 2 hour Prezi called "Amblyopia and Strabismus Therapy Treatment with Virtual Reality". It was an interactive discussion of our use of Vivid Vision, the Oculus Rift-based VR vision therapy tool. It was created to bring immersive new technology to long-standing principles of vision therapy. You can read more about Vivid Vision here.
After hours there was swimming, food and drinks, and more discussion about vision therapy. :)
The meeting was sponsored by Eyecarrot. They the company behind, Binovi, the new vision therapy tracking technology that we are using at Bright Eyes.
Here are a few pictures from the meeting:
