Testimonials


  • Dr. Kavner is a gifted diagnostician and orthoptic therapist. He treated me several decades ago for a condition similar to dyslexia. I was having migraines five times per week. I worked with him for about a year and I experienced tremendous improvement (down to 3-4 per year) that has lasted.

  • Dr. Kavner recommended two types of eye therapy for my daughter. One of them using bio-feedback. In just three sessions she is seeing considerably better. She shouted this morning: Ooh my God! I could not see these letters with my glasses on, and now I can see them without my glasses. If you are willing and able to invest in improving your vision, this is a good place to go to!

  • I have always found Dr Kavner's work, expertise and wisdom of the highest caliber. As one of the fathers of OT, occupational othomology, his depth and breadth of knowledge about the eyes' health and wellbeing of the patient is exemplary. Cannot say enough good things about him.


    Allen B.

  • As a long time patient and grateful recipient of Dr Kavner's care for my whole family I can wholeheartedly tell others his care is exemplary. His knowledge base is thrilling, and how ability to synthesize his wisdom into useful, accessible information is comforting, to say the least. I cannot say enough about this kind, gentle man and his legendary skills - he was one of the fathers of Occupational Optometry.
