Developmental Optometrist

Dr. Michele Bessler, owner

Developmental vision evaluations are different from basic eye examinations.  Hidden vision disorders can challenge the child’s ability to learn on an ongoing basis.  Common vision problems may interfere with reading, writing, classroom or academic performance


Nutritional Intervention

Holistic nutritional services  & so much more.  

OT  is about making changes in the nervous system, the brain .  This means building new pathways or making them stronger.  Supporting it by the proper nutrients are important!
