Optometry & Vision Development volume 41 #2 is just now being finalized. It’s shaping up to be another magnificent issue that will feature editorials by Dr. Dominick Maino (DMM Scope of Practice Data Series: Ophthalmology). Did you know the AMA is telling others all about your profession, but not quite always telling the truth….but wait there’s more! They also want to tell you about Nursing, Podiatry, Pharmacy and many other professions as well. Read this satirical editorial. It will make you laugh, cry and get very angry at the hubris of organized medicine.

Susan Barry, PhD (aka Stereo-Sue) writes, Optometric Vision Therapy: More Than Meets the Eye….an editorial you do not want to miss! Her book, Fixing My Gaze:A Scientist’s Journey into Seeing in Three Dimensions, is a top seller on Amazon. Find out why when you read this editorial.

Our articles will include Frequency and Types of Pediatric Symptoms in a Clinical Population by Dr. WC Maples (and you know what an outstanding author he is!!) and From Braille to Quilting: A Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Case Report by Dr. Kauser Sharieff who is both a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development and the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association.

OVD volume 41 #2 does not ignore the practice management side either! There will be articles on Social Digital Media – a New and Powerful Way to Educate Your Patients about Optometric Vision Therapy, Staff Problems: Proficiency or Attitude, Doctor-Staff Relations: Don’t Underestimate the Power of “Hello , and Dispelling Two Pernicious Myths about Optometric Vision Therapy.

Of course there are Letters to the Editor, Literature Reviews, and the NewsMakers columns as well. Watch very carefully for future announcements regarding the publication of this OVD issue!
