4. Fixing My Gaze
Susan R. Barry, PhD
Published in 2009 by Hachette Book Group
Dr. Barry, a professor of neurobiology in the department of biological sciences at Mount Holyoke College, is considered to be an angel to optometrists who perform vision therapy. A lifelong constant esotrope, she details her journey to obtain stereovision as an adult.
While those in the field knew without hesitation that this was not a new concept, Dr. Barry, speaking as a scientist and a patient, brought the topic to the masses—and she made everyone sit up and listen. It is incredible to read in such vivid detail the work she did in vision therapy, including the first moments she saw in 3D. She offers an understanding of vision therapy from a scientific viewpoint and highlights her references in a notes section.
This is not only a book to be read by doctors and therapists but also by patients going through vision therapy and their parents.
