New podcast resource will provide life-changing vision insights to therapists, providers, teachers and caregivers
CROMWELL, Conn., Oct. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 4D Vision Gym today announced the launch of It Could Be Your Eyes, a podcast where Host and Behavioral Optometrist Dr. Juanita Collier, MS, OD, FCOVD will introduce listeners to the vision problems children face from reading too early and for too long and how Vision Therapy (VT) can retrain the eyes and brain to correct it.
“As schools return to pre-COVID norms, many things, like extended screentime in the classroom, are here to stay. Young children spend hours a day reading or using Chromebooks before their eyes are fully developed,” Behavioral Optometrist, 4D Vision Gym Founder and Podcast Host, Dr. Juanita Collier said. “These prolonged exposures increase the likelihood that children as young as 3 years old will need glasses by the time they are in third grade. Preparing children for new digital systems through this ‘physical therapy for the eyes’ will help their vision long term.”
The It Could Be Your Eyes podcast speaks directly to parents, caregivers, educators, therapists and providers about the struggles children face in sports, academics, behavior and vision and gives step-by-step tips to help them. It Could Be Your Eyes provides a platform to discuss preventative non-surgical treatment of the most common eye ailments including lazy eyes, crossed eyes, blurred and double vision, convergence insufficiency and vision-related reading and learning disabilities. It also covers athletic-performance issues ranging from poor depth perception, slow eye-hand coordination and concussion-related visual function loss like double vision, peripheral vision difficulties, and other chronic issues resulting from traumatic brain injury.
“Parents should be curious if their child is behaving, performing, or interacting with their environment, peers and activities differently,” Dr. Collier said. “Through this curiosity, they can be their child’s best advocate by exploring options, questioning traditional models and empowering their children to self-advocate to find the root cause.”
