Vision Therapy is a specialty of Optometry in which it is posible to fix certain eye disorders with orthoptic training. This Behavioral Optometry approach is learned by all eye doctors in school, however, not all perform this corrective non envasive procedure. Dr. Goldstein has been providing the best quality vision therapy in Connecticut since 2000.
With thousands of satisfied patient's, Dr. Goldstein has earned referrals from many prestigious institutions around Connecticut, other Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, Pediatricians, Neurologists, Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Private Prep Schools, and Oncologists.
Sometimes, people are referred to Rocky Hill Eye Associates for functional eye problems such as Convergence Insufficiency, but with our extremely thorough eye exams, we sometimes catch other medical problems that can give the same symptoms. Examples would be strokes, Aneurysms, Tumors, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, and Seizure activity. With our most up to date equipment we have Electro-encephalograms, visual fields, optical coherence tomography, 3D digital non dilation photo's, on site.
Accommodation - the flexing and relaxation of the crystalline lens inside of the eye, which is used to focus light onto the retina. Upon observing objects at different distances, the lens will flex to make an object clear.
Age related Macular Degeneration - The natural turn around of the retinal cells is much like on your skin. New tissue is created under the old, and as the old gets non-functional...the body removes this tissue out of the eye. If the process of removing the old cells is disrupted, this can cause accumulation of deposits on the retina. The deposits can cause wavy vision, and if significant, central vision loss.
Blepharitis - Inflammation of the lid margins of the eyes. Can be caused by blockage of glands, allergies, or bacteria.
Binocular - Using two eyes to observe objects and send the information to the brain.
Cataract - A breakdown in the natural casing of the crystalline lens, causing swelling of the lens, will create some types of cataracts. Drug use (prescribed or non-prescribed) can also cause deposits to form on the crystalline lens.
Convergence - When looking at an object at near, our eyes turn inward towards each other to align at the object.
Divergence - When looking in the distance, the natural alignment of the eyes is to turn outward away from each other.
Functional Eye Problems- Non disease related problems causing disruption in vision, and processing.
Glaucoma - Build up of pressure within the eye causing blood flow to decrease in the vasculature, and causing areas of starvation to the retinal cells. This will cause cell death if left untreated.
Monocular - Using only one of the eyes for vision, and visual processing.
Ophthalmologist - Secondary care eye doctor specializing in surgical, and medicinal treatment of eye diseases.
Optician - A non doctor, trained technician in optics to measure, sell and make glasses.
Optometrist - Primary care eye doctor, specializing in diagnosis, treatment, and management of eye diseases or functional eye problems. Also specialize in contact lenses, glasses prescriptions.
Retinopathy - changes to the inside tissue of the eye involving retina and blood vessels.
Visual Closure - identifying clues from visual information, and filling in information to identify the total picture.
Visual-motor integration - Ability to observe and object, identify one's self in space, and accurately interact with the visual object using body movements.
