Dr. Mackowsky and staff attend the 85th College of Syntonic Optometry Conference

Dr. Mackowsky and her head vision rehab therapist, Matthew, just returned from attending the 85th International Conference on Light and Vision held in Pittsburgh.  Syntonics, from the word syntony (to bring into balance), is the branch of ocular science dealing with the application of selected light frequencies.  Colored light therapy can act as a powerful tool to stimulate the biochemistry of the brain that can help improve the function of the visual system.  Colleagues presented research showing evidence that relatively short-term syntonic treatment can significantly improve visual skills, peripheral vision awareness, memory, behavior, mood, general performance and academic achievement. 

Both Dr. Mackowsky and Matthew are extremely eager to incorporate the methods learned as an additional service to patients being treated for visual dysfunctions.
