Patient Advocates: Your Ready Connection to Mind-Eye Team

The Mind-Eye Institute is training patient advocates to assist active patients. The patient advocate will serve as point-of-contact and concierge for all patient communication needs, queries and requests – everything from information about CPT codes for insurance reimbursement to reports and answers to questions. Patients will know they have someone accountable to them. Advocates will save patients time and energy because they will know the unique history, circumstances and needs of every assigned patient. Each advocate will have text and phone access to Mind-Eye doctors, technicians, and optical personnel, as well as information about shipping schedules and orders. The advocate is intended to serve as a useful, friendly, single point-of-contact for patients — someone who knows them and is readily available to them by phone, text messaging or email.

Welcome Joe Black! Accuracy of Retinal Neuromodulators Ensured

The Mind-Eye team welcomes Joseph Black, board member and former president of Professional Opticians of Florida. Joe will support manufacture and delivery of prescriptive therapeutic retinal neuromodulators exclusively for the Mind-Eye Institute. Joe’s strong, professional, managerial background in the exacting standards of science and patient service perfectly complement the research and clinical application of neurophotonics and the retinal brain science that Institute Director Deborah Zelinsky O.D., her global research community and those she mentors continue to pioneer. As the Z-Bell Test® and numerous other visual processing tests tell Mind-Eye doctors what prescriptions will optimally benefit each individual patient, the optician’s critically specific, technical attention to provide exactly what is prescribed becomes essential. What use is the prescription and all the science behind it if the medical device to achieve the prescription’s goals is not completely accurate?

Joe Black’s outstanding professional reputation, decades of experience in every facet of opticianry, long-term relationship with Dr Zelinsky, and training in Dr. Zelinsky’s neurophotonics programs make him the perfect fit to ensure that prescribed medical devices are exact and provide patients with the intended therapeutic effects. Accurate manufacture of such medical devices is more difficult to achieve in commercial settings, which have a higher tolerance range, because their patients can easily adapt to small changes. Typically, commercial eyeglass lenses are made as “eyesight enhancers,” designed for central eyesight; Mind-Eye glasses are designed to address peripheral eyesight and are used as medical devices for retinal neuromodulation.

Ultimately, patients come to Mind-Eye optometrists for evaluation of sensory and motor processing and Mind-Eye’s unique brand.  Mind-Eye patients have smaller, sometimes no-tolerance ranges, and need more precision in lenses than what standard glasses provide.

Accuracy, fast delivery, and responsiveness are the 21st century commitment of the Mind-Eye Institute.

Financial Help on the Way

Financial assistance takes many forms — from reduced fees to participate in training of new optometrists to applications for assistance. Mind-Eye is now partnering with Care Credit and other financial providers to make it easy to choose term loans that can be paid same as cash with options to pay them off after the terms at lower interest rates, unsecured loans, and long-term secured loan sources. All these options can help patients access Mind-Eye Institute benefits of improved health before payment is due. Watch for announcements of six-month loans, same as cash terms, from Care Credit and other possible providers. Your patient advocates will soon be able to explain how to use these programs for maximum personal benefit. They are not financial counselors, but they can explain payment options that some patients may not know are available.

Make The Connection

'Dr. Zelinsky Is Renowned'

~ Norman Doidge, M.D. & Clark Elliott, Ph.D., Dr. Patrick Quaid and Patricia S. Lemer praise her accomplishments:

"Zelinsky fit Elliott with a series of eyeglasses designed to improve the perceptual damage that made his life so difficult... Getting fitted for Zelinsky's eyeglasses is like no eye appointment you've ever had... Now, Elliott says, he is almost entirely symptom-free, able to problem-solve, multi-task and find his way easily — all abilities he lost in the auto accident in 1999. When he put on his Phase VI glasses he felt something that he hadn't felt for years: "I felt normal."

Review: 'The Ghost in My Brain'
- The Chicago Tribune

"One brilliant Chicago-area optometrist I know, Deborah Zelinsky OD, FNORA, FCOVD, has developed a unique, patented, easy-to-administer evaluation called the Z-Bell Test. This test measures the efficiency of integration between visual processing and listening....A 2014 study at Vanderbilt University found that children with autism do not synchronize their seeing and hearing...I have watched Dr. Zelinsky administer this test to disbelieving colleagues, who were astounded by its accuracy and results...Over the past two decades, The Z-Bell Test has become internationally recognized by the scientific community.”

- Patricia S. Lemer, Licensed Profesional Counselor (LPC)

"I visited Dr. Zelinsky, and she showed me how she can use optical lenses to alter sensory filtering, by directing light to different retinal cells and brain circuits. This can influence activity in the brain and the hypothalamus to better regulate body chemistry, sensory integration, and even some auditory processing. [Dr. Zelinsky] works frequently with patients working with learning and cognitive disorders as well as TBIs."

- Norman Doidge, M.D.

"I was delighted to have Dr. Zelinsky personally contribute to the book. Her wealth of knowledge in the area of visual development and visual processing is widely known, not just through her contribution of eye-care to the author of “The Ghost in My Brain”, but also via her Mind-Eye Institute and the lectures and training their provide. Dr. Zelinsky is not just colleague and a friend, but also a valued member of the neuro-optometric community and an invaluable bridge to other allied professions treating brain injuries. Her contribution to the book is deeply appreciated."

- Dr. Patrick Quaid, MCOptom, FCOVD, PhD
