A little bit about our office…
Dr. Paul Feinberg established the Mall Optical and Hearing Aid Center in 1962 at the Pontiac Mall, which has since become known as the Summit Place Mall. Dr. Debby Feinberg joined her father in 1983, and has shown the same care and concern for our patients as her father has done over the years. Mrs. Shirley Feinberg is our frame buyer and styling coordinator.
Since 1995 Dr. Feinberg has been developing the field of NeuroVisual Medicine which is the optometric subspecialty that identifies and treats neurological / medical symptoms that originate directly or indirectly in the visual system.
Dr. Feinberg has been performing pioneering work with Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD), a condition where a vision misalignment (frequently subtle) creates difficulties with the two eyes working together to create a single 3-dimensional image, and difficulties with the two eyes following that image as it moves.
The symptoms caused by BVD are not usually associated with problems with the visual system, and include headache, dizziness, anxiety and panic, persistent post-concussive symptoms, gait instability and balance problems, frequent falls, neck pain, motion sickness, nausea, and reading and learning problems.
In 2004. Dr. Feinberg, along with Dr. Paul and her husband Dr. Mark Rosner (our Business Manager) established Vision Specialists of Birmingham, specifically designing the practice to accommodate the needs of the NeuroVisual Medicine patient. It is with pride that we can say we are one of the longest practicing professional eye care centers in Oakland County. It is truly a family run business, and it is that family spirit that will help us serve our friends and community for many years to come.
In 2011, we moved to our new facility in Bloomfield Hills and changed our name to Vision Specialists of Michigan.
