    Reading, Eyesight and Vision

Reading is a complex task requiring adequate language abilities, visual skills, cognitive abilities, intrinsic motivation, supportive parents, and pedagogy.

Vision is a complex sensorimotor system.

A behavioral optometrist (also known as a developmental optometrist) knows that vision plays a pivotal role in reading ability. Dr. Gushiken of Honolulu, Hawaii utilizes state-of-the-art therapeutic knowledge to help his patients become better readers, better information processors, and better thinkers.

    How does the Treatment Differ from Opthalmologists?

Clinically, a behavioral optometrist prescribes lenses differently than opthalmologists and other optometrists. His lens prescribing aims at improving visual function, performance, ease and comfort.

When visual dysfunctions are more involved, a behavioral optometrist prescribes Vision Therapy (please see "What is Vision Therapy?" or "Therapy Procedures").
