Neuro-Developmental Optometric Research:
In addition to eyesight, the eyes are connected to many other neurological and biochemical pathways. Dr. A.M. Skeffington began his seminal work over seventy five years ago, correctly hypothesizing that the eye was part of the human body. He had empirical evidence, but no direct proof. Since neuroimaging has been available, all of his theories are being proven true. At the Mind-Eye Connection, we're taking both his work, and that of Dr. Albert A. Sutton (one of Dr. Skeffington's proteges) to a new dimension of vision care. For more information, read Dr. Zelinsky's latest publications. If you are interested in being put on the email list for future Mind-Eye Connection workshops and certifications please email your name and contact phone number and email to [email protected]
