 Mind-Eye Institute Testing Addresses
Brain Issues, Learning Deficiencies

They’re no longer your standard, read-the-chart, 20/20 eye exams.

These tests, available at the Mind-Eye Institute,1414 Techny Road, Northbrook, Ill., involve advanced neuro-optometric expertise.  They are designed for children and adults who struggle with learning deficiencies or suffer post-concussion symptoms, such as sensitivity to lights or sounds, headaches, blurry or doubled eyesight, trouble with short-term memory problems, balance issues or simply feeling not quite right in their environment.

“Many learning deficiencies, lingering symptoms of brain injuries, post-traumatic stress and other neurological issues are related to retinal sensitivity in peripheral eyesight and the lack of a solid integration between visual and auditory signals,” says Deborah Zelinsky O.D., research director of the Mind-Eye Institute and an optometrist noted worldwide for her work in neuro-optometric rehabilitation.

Lack of synchronization between a person’s visual, auditory and motor systems can significantly impact many types of brain pathways, Dr. Zelinsky says. 

“Our comprehensive screening is intended to determine imbalances in visual performance and visual processing functions,” she explains. “With this information, we can determine how light passing through a person’s retina can be manipulated to positively impact brain function.”

Included in each diagnostic analysis are tests that involve eye tracking, visual processing and adaptability to peripheral changes, as well as Dr, Zelinsky’s Z-Bell Test®– a simple but revolutionary method of checking a patient’s overall awareness of surrounding space and his or her integration of visual processing with awareness of auditory space.  The testing tends to pinpoint specific pathways that hinder visual skill development.

Dan Myers, O.D., Managing Director of Optometry with the Mind-Eye Institute, will be performing the evaluations.

“Patients who are recommended for follow-up and decide to move forward in our rehabilitation program will be prescribed therapeutic eyeglasses, lenses or other optometric interventions that modify environmental input to the retina and affect their dysfunctional visual issues,” Dr. Myers says.

Those who are interested in arranging an appointment for the screening should call the Mind-Eye Institute at 847-501-2020, extension 2 and be prepared to make a $300 deposit by phone. New patients can also complete a 60-second, online quiz to determine the severity of their symptoms at https://mindeye.com/quiz/.

“We have been able to change the lives of many people by prescribing eyeglasses that optimize the relationship between central and peripheral retinal receptors, while improving the interaction between eyes and ears,” Dr. Zelinsky says.  “We encourage those who have not been helped by more standard care approaches to register for a screening at the Institute.”
