Community Outreach Manager Elli Altman was first a patient at Vision Specialists. Now she shares her and other patients’ stories to spread awareness and education regarding vision misalignments (binocular vision dysfunction).

The Knee Bone’s Connected to the Thigh Bone….

Remember that kid’s song?

Our body is more than a collection of parts.  All those parts work together and that’s an important piece of the puzzle that we call health and wellness.

Your eyes…the two orbs above your nose that we count on to see the world?  It would be so simple if eyes were just for seeing.  Yet, they are so much more.

And that’s where NEURO VISUAL medicine happens.  In reality, the eyes are the cameras that send pictures to the brain.  It is the brain that does the ‘seeing.’  Now hold that thought for a moment and think about this….

We are familiar with ENT specialists.  Ear…. Nose….Throat.  Well, did you know that this specialty used to be ‘EENT’?  That other E?  It was “Eyes.”  Yes, there was a time when the connection between the eyes and ears was understood and expected.  Not so much anymore.

It is NeuroVisual medicine that understands the connection of the eyes to the brain, the ears, and more.

So, what does this mean to you?  Well, if you have issues with balance, dizziness, headaches (migraines)…. a NeuroVisual Specialist may very well be the right person to help.  How do you determine if a NeuroVisual Specialst can help you?  Complete the short screening questionnaire at to find out.
