The Relationship between Saccades and Locomotion with Dr. Politzer

Dr. Politzer bio: 

Dr. Politzer is a leading optometric expert in diagnosing and treating vision problems in neurologic disease. For more than 38 years he has been caring for patients and presently staffs and runs his own private practice, Neuro-Sight Visioncare and vision clinics at multiple hospitals in Colorado and is also a consultant to many groups. He has had numerous presentations and publications on Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation. He also has many inventions which include:

·The Vufine Visual Field Awareness System: a novel digital approach for enhancing visual field awareness after loss. 

·The Beam Splitter: a novel approach for enhancing visual field awareness after loss. A SONAR based approach to enhance awareness of visual field loss. 

·The Cyclo Prism for treatment of rotational strabismus following Cranial Nerve IV injury. 

·The Spot Patch, partial and selective occlusion for the treatment and management of double vision 

 Dr. Politzer said when he was teaching a course with a colleague a few years ago, he walked into Mayo hospital and he saw their moto which expresses his feeling  about health care.  "The Best interest of the Patient is the Only Interest". 

And I hope this is why everyone is listening today. To learn more for the interest of our patients or if you are a patient to learn and empower what you can do for yourself.
