Myrna Hayes will discuss her experience following a Traumatic Brain Injury, Nothing she tried worked until she explored "Mind-Eye Institute". Now, Myrna is able to work and think coherently by wearing special glasses. These glasses were individually created for her using her particular pattern of navigation of the world. She will talk tonight about the use and care of these lenses.
The Mind-Eye Institute is an optometry practice (for almost 30 years) with an emphasis on neuro-optometric rehabilitation. That is, working with the whole patient, not just the eyes. Their purpose is to connect optometry with brain function for better use the brain in daily functioning. By coordinating the eyes, ears, and brain, the signals travel in a unique pathway for each person using the patterns specific to each person. The Mind-Eye Research Division is very active, focusing on mining the secrets of retinal, electrical and biochemical connections and how they affect cardiac, endocrine, neurological and other systems. They work with cases of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), Post-Concussive Syndrome, challenges related to Autism, as well as learning and developmental challenges.
We also have a representative, Cathy Grochowski, a patient care advocate from the Mind-Eye Inst. who will briefly discuss the neuroscience behind the coordination of the audio and visual systems to offer the patients a lasting and profound impact following brain trauma. She was the victim of her own TBI prior to her discovery of, and later employment with, the Mind-Eye Inst.
