As part of their clinical rotation, optometry students often are placed at The Vision Therapy Center under the tutelage of Dr. Kellye Knueppel. Kelli Theisen, a fourth-year optometry student at The Illinois College of Optometry, shared with us her experiences with vision therapy in a clinical setting.
It’s one thing to read about vision therapy in a textbook and listen to it described in lecture. It’s quite a different experience to work with patients and watch as it helps improve their functional vision.
Listen to Kelli as she describes:
- Her previous exposure to vision therapy
- Her first encounter working with vision therapy activity and tools
- Her reaction to seeing improvement in children’s functional vision
We wish Kelli the best of luck as she completes her last year!
