Curing Learning-related Vision Problems | Dr. Vicky Vandervort | TEDxLincoln
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Optometrist, Dr. Vicky Vandervort explains what it is like for a person to have eyes that work but do so inefficiently causing the person to exert extreme effort to see. When this occurs, people, especially children, do not realize the drain on their brain. They try hard, but appear not to be trying at all. She’s found that curing the “vision problems,” in most cases, cures the problems identified as academic problems. “When the visual obstacles are removed, the child begins to excel in school, music and sports. Futures brighten. Self-confidence climbs and a new child emerges from the old, much like a butterfly emerging from the chrysalis. The possibilities are endless.”
Dr. Vandervort, earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Iowa where she majored in elementary education with a minor in early childhood development. She taught in the Lincoln, Nebraska school system for four years. After earning her Doctor of Optometry degree at Southern California College of Optometry, Dr. Vandervort combined her two degrees and has dedicated her career to helping people of all ages maximize their potential in the classroom, workplace and their leisure activities.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

What 3D MOVIES can tell you about your VISION
What if the 3-D movie adventure, instead of being a wonderful experience of visual delight turned into a woeful experience of headache and feeling yucky? Why would something created to be a super cool entertainment experience be not so wonderful? And does the inability to enjoy a 3-D movie reveal something more seriously wrong with a child's vision?
This video helps to shed some light on this serious public health issue...what 3-D movies can reveal about your child's vision.
