Research Presented at AAO

Dr. Dominick Maino along with two of his students (Caitlin and Rachael and Illinois College of Optometry colleague, Dr. Darrell Schlange (not pictured)) presented their research at the American Academy of Optometry annual meeting in Seattle this October.
 
 Their research compared the Binocular Vision Assessment (BVA) computerized vision screening program to a full comprehensive vision examination and visual efficiency assessment to evaluate its effectiveness as a screening for binocular vision problems. Their research suggests that the BVA can be used to screen for these important vision problems. Hundreds of Dr. Maino's fellow scientists and optometrists, stopped by to discuss the results of this project.
 
Dr. Maino is a Professor of Pediatrics and Binocular Vision at the Illinois Eye Institute/Illinois College of Optometry and an attending optometrist at Lyons Family Eye Care in Chicago. He specializes in children and adults with binocular vision problems, learning related vision problems and those with special needs. His latest book was awarded First Prize in Health and Social Care by the British Medical Association at an awards ceremony and banquet in London, UK recently.
