Typical Eye Testing May Not Thoroughly Assess Sensory Overload

01
Make The Connection
The traditional practice of using eyeglasses simply to give a patient clearer, 20/20 eyesight is outdated. Current scientific knowledge presents the opportunity for prescription eyeglasses to be selectively designed to alter sensory integration, including auditory function and body biochemistry, and affect learning disabilities, autism, symptoms of concussion and many other neurological impairments.

02
Changing Perspectives
Mental health disorders have reached a crisis level in the world, including the United States, and are as much related to retinal sensitivities in peripheral eyesight and lack of integration between visual and auditory signals, as they are to abnormal brain activity and neurochemical imbalances. Just as changes in environmental stimuli can impact brain function and biochemistry, so, too, eyeglasses can modify environmental input to the retina and mitigate neurological issues.

03
Skillness vs Illness
Policy changes regarding screening for proper connections between eyes and ears would allow health professionals to intervene in this public health care crisis by preventing or at least reducing various mental health issues, thereby enhancing the quality of citizens’ lives (young and old), promoting better productivity of citizens, and potentially reducing health care costs by millions of dollars worldwide.

Debbie Zelinsky saved my life. This is not hyperbole. If you or your child has always been slightly “off,” struggling with an invisible illness that others dismiss, don’t walk— run— to the Mind-Eye Institute.

We love Dr Z and the staff at Mind Eye Connection! My daughter started seeing Dr Z in 2nd grade and was diagnosed with a learning disability and given and IEP. She is now in 8th grade, with a 4.0 GPS and no longer needs her IEP! Dr Z was a game changer for us! We can’t thank you enough!

Dr. Zelinsky, thank you for resolving my vision issues that I sustained as a result of my TBI. You confirmed my symptoms and gave me the confidence that I would heal. You predicted I'd be better in 6 months and you were right on, I continue to improve everyday thanks to you.

Doctor Z has saved my life multiple times. She cured me of my post concussive symptoms. I rate the mind eye connection 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone.

Life changing improvement for my husband five years post acquired brain injury. Even the Mayo Clinic had told us there was nothing more they could do. Dr. Zelinsky is astounding in her ability to retrain the brain.

The Doctor is off the charts brilliant. When my kids were having challenges in reading and school work . She understands how the brain works and the connection of the visual connections like no other. Amazing results!

Dr. Zelinsky is a miracle-worker. If other doctors have no idea how to cure you, tell you you're 100% healthy when you know you're not, and/or look at you like your crazy, go see Dr. Zelinsky

The progress we are seeing with our kiddo now that he has started seeing Dr Zelinsky is tremendous!

MAKE THE CONNECTION

'Dr. Zelinsky Is Renowned'

~ Norman Doidge, M.D. & Clark Elliott, Ph.D., 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."
