The Discovering Vision Therapy Blog Shows How Media Manipulates the Truth about Vision Therapy!



The Discovering Vision Therapy Blog Shows How Media Manipulates the Truth about Vision Therapy!

Applause goes out to the vision therapy community – optometrists, parents, patients – for rallying against the naysayers.  Or in this case, one naysayer, who published an article recently in The Chronicle of Social Change that was long on bias, and short on facts.  Fortunately, there were plenty in our camp to refute the article, and send a message that this type of irresponsible journalism will definitely be met with a response....

Comments: Here is my response to this very poor attemtp at journalism:

David…
I don’t know why you choose to be in the hip pocket of ophthalmology…but obviously you have swallowed their unsubstantiated reasons for stating vision therapy does not work…when obviously it works quite well. A REAL journalist would seek out the true story and not become a mouthpiece for the MDs. You need to rethink your journalistic ethics…..
As a Professor of Pediatrics and Binocular Vision I would be happy to educate you concerning the science pertaining to optometric vision therapy….
But First read the paper below:
