When our guest-host was diagnosed with Vertical Heterophoria in 2015 it changed her life, as you’ll hear her say in this episode. Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD) is a condition that is still being studied however it can affect many with ADHD. Anxiety, dizziness, motion sickness, post-concussive symptoms, and interestingly– feeling overwhelmed in large stores, can all be clues that a person might be suffering from BVD.
Today’s guest is Dr. Debby Feinberg who is performing pioneering work in this area. She’s developed a test to identify it and a simple way to fix it that utilizes prism lenses.
