Parents Active in Vision Education


And Welcome to the Web site of Dr. Gushiken....

Yes, there are optometrists doing vision therapy even in Hawaii. And every day, more and more students are being helped by these specialists.

There is a wealth of "vision" information available here. Please feel free to access this through the links to vision education pages on the left hand side of this page. These links have been kindly provided as a courtesy to optometrists by Rachel Cooper.

    Reading 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 believes that vision plays a pivotal role in reading. He utilizes state-of-the-art 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 and performance.

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