"We learn skills through our life experiences, especially early on. We learn how to integrate both sides of our body, and we learn how to develop the motor foundation from which we then learn how to use our visual system."
Dr. Bryce Appelbaum is a pioneer in neuro-optometry, passionate about unlocking life’s potential through vision. His expertise includes reorganizing the visual brain post-concussion, remediating visual developmental delays interfering with reading and learning, and enhancing visual skills to elevate sports performance.
Dr. Appelbaum is on a mission to change the way the world views vision. He believes there is more to vision than just 20/20 eyesight and has developed programs to retrain the brain and eyes. Dr. Appelbaum has been featured on the front page of USA Today, in The New York Times, and in many others.
