The Importance of a Solid Mind-Eye Connection in NeuroMovement®, with Dr. Deborah Zelinsky
Thursday, March 24, 2022
- Interactions among the Mind, Body and Environment
- Body Adaptations to Visual Changes in the Environment
- Mental Adaptations to Visual Changes in the Environment
- How Your Patient Care will Benefit by Collaborating with a Mind-Eye Optometrist
Participants will be able to view patients from a Mind-Eye viewpoint, learning how eyeglasses can be designed to selectively activate various brain pathways. Those pathways interact with sleeping patterns, posture and mood, in addition to skeletal muscles.
The first three sections will cover how the mind and body react and respond to environmental changes, the difference between internal visualization and external eyesight, the circuitry between eyes, shoulders and hips. The concluding section will discuss how patient care can be enhanced with collaboration.
About Dr. Zelinsky:
Deborah Zelinsky, O.D. has personally experienced Anat Baniel’s methods forty years ago, and has been an advocate ever since. Dr. Zelinsky is an optometrist noted worldwide for her discovery of the use of eyeglasses to alter sound location, and her subsequent development of the Z-BellSM Test. This patented test allows Dr. Zelinsky and her team to prescribe lenses that synchronize the integration between auditory and visual sensory inputs.
Currently, she serves as founder of The Mind-Eye Institute in Northbrook, on the board of directors for the Society for Brain Mapping and as treasurer for California Brainwaves organization. The goal in each organization is the same – to “Leave 20/20 in the 20th CenturyTM” by enhancing eye testing to include more assessments of moving targets and overall awareness of surroundings. The measurement of 20/20 eyesight does not consider the periphery or sensory integration, both of which are critical in patients. More information can be found at mindeye.com.
Understanding the Latest Research on Cerebral Vision Impairment (CVI), with Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy
Friday, March 25, 2022
- Identification of Cerebral Vision Impairment
- Assessment of Cerebral Vision Impairment
- New Research
The current leading cause of visual impairment among children is not a disease or condition of the eyes, but cortical visual impairment (CVI)—also known as cerebral visual impairment—in which visual dysfunction is caused by damage or injury to the brain. The definition, nature, and treatment of CVI are the focus of great concern and widespread debate, and this complex condition poses challenges to professionals and families seeking to support the growth and development of visually impaired children.
On the basis of more than 30 years’ experience in working with hundreds of children of all ages with CVI, Christine Roman-Lantzy has developed a set of unique assessment tools and systematic, targeted principles whose use has helped children learn to use their vision more effectively.
About Dr. Roman-Lantzy
Christine Roman Lantzy has Bachelor’s Degrees in Elementary Education, and Visual Impairment. She is a Certified Orientation & Mobility Specialist and has a Master’s Degree in Medically Fragile, High Risk Infants. Her Ph.D. focused on Cortical Visual Impairment and Infancy.
Christine Roman Lantzy is The Director of Pediatric View in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and a consultant through her service, CVI Resources. Christine provides workshops and consultations through CVI Resources and has had the honor to be invited to all parts of The United States and many countries outside The U.S. She is the author of Cortical Visual Impairment: An Approach to Assessment and Intervention, which won The Bledsoe Award in 2008.
