Dr Samantha Slotnick OD, FAAO, FCOVD
Dr. Samantha Slotnick has a diverse background, with undergraduate roots in behavioral psychology as well as physical chemistry, and post-graduate training in behavioral optometry and vision science. This dual training in art and science is the foundation for her thorough, balanced approach to patient care, maintaining attention to detail without losing sight of the big picture.
Her private behavioral optometry practice is in Scarsdale, NY, providing a whole-person, holistic approach to vision care, for all ages. She specializes in pediatric care and vision development, offering vision therapy and rehabilitation for children – and adults –with vision problems which interfere with reading, learning, attention, performance and efficiency.
Dr. Slotnick obtained her doctorate from the SUNY College of Optometry, and went on to complete her residency in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation, also at SUNY, along with advanced studies in Vision Science. She continued her academic and practical training, attaining Fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry and the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. She remains involved in vision research as a consultant. Recent projects include advanced retinal scanning technology in the identification of Parkinson Disease, and visual perceptual changes in face recognition following acquired brain injury.
Within her profession, Dr. Slotnick has lectured internationally, leading advanced seminars and workshops for optometrists and vision therapists, with an emphasis on vision training for patients with Strabismus (eye turns) and compromised binocular vision. She also lectures to general optometrists on myopia control, and optometric management of patients with special needs.
