Optometric Services in Scarsdale, NY

Dr. Slotnick uses a wide range of vision therapy methods in addition to general eye care services to help treat several eye-related conditions without the use of surgery. Dr. Slotnick prescribes personalized therapeutic plans, which are individualized to meet the unique needs of each patient in order to ensure the best possible treatments results. Dr. Slotnick and our team at Samantha Slotnick OD, FAAO, FCOVD offer the following services to patients in Scarsdale and the surrounding areas:

Vision Exams

All patients receive a comprehensive vision exam, which includes a complete examination and discussion of the patient's health history and symptoms to aid in diagnosis, a visual acuity test, a general eye examination to assess the health of the eye's internal structures and proper function, and an eye health screening. It is recommended that patients schedule a comprehensive eye exam annually for early diagnosis of eye conditions and to update corrective lens prescriptions.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy uses various non-invasive procedures and exercises to improve eye conditions and eye function. Not to be confused with exercises aimed at strengthening the eye muscles, in vision therapy, the target organ is the BRAIN. Vision therapy activities improve visual abilities, function, skill, ease of use, comfort, and the ability to process visual information. Depending on patient diagnosis, Dr. Slotnick will treat any existing eye conditions using various vision therapy techniques including orthoptic, behavioral, visual processing, perceptual therapy, sensory learning, syntonic phototherapy, and others. Vision therapy sessions usually last anywhere from 45 minutes to one hour scheduled once or twice per week.

Visual Rehabilitation

Patients who have suffered any ailment, disease, or injury which has resulted in a vision impairment require visual rehabilitation. During rehabilitation, patients will undergo various treatments and vision therapies to restore their visual abilities to an optimal level of function.

Ortho-K

Short for orthokeratology, ortho-k refers to the fitting of specially designed overnight contact lenses, which gently and gradually reshape the cornea (the surface of the eye) to treat conditions like astigmatism, myopia, childhood myopia, and refractive errors like nearsightedness. Dr. Slotnick co-manages patients who are interested in Ortho-K.

Sports Vision

Sports vision therapy aims to reduce the risk of injury and to improve the eye function of athletes by enhancing both visual perceptual skills and visual motor skills. Using visual acuity tests and therapeutic eyewear to modify vision, Dr. Slotnick also enhances the function of athletes' eyes using vision therapy treatments to better develop motor skills and cognitive perception of visual information.
