Traditional eye care focuses on treating symptoms through ever increasing prescriptions creating greater dependency on glasses. This is why so many people feel that their vision seems to get worse each time they visit an eye doctor.

Holistic Approach to Eye Care

Dr. Jerry Wintrob’s practice uses many forms of holistic medicine to treat patients with a wide range of visual problems. His orientation is to identify and treat the cause of the symptoms.

Although vision exercises are a main focus of his practice, he also readily uses nutrition, body work, acupuncture, herbs, syntonics (a colored light therapy), biofeedback, psychotherapy (in coordination with clinical social worker Therese Bimka, LCSW), educational tutoring and yes, even glasses.

By approaching the visual difficulty from a holistic perspective, visual problems can often be arrested and sometimes even reversed.

Often patients think that if their vision isn’t blurred, they don’t have a visual problem. Blurred vision is only one symptom of an inadequately functioning visual system. Other symptoms may include headaches, poor reading retention, neck pain, loss of place when reading, a turned eye, learning problems, difficulty concentrating, and hyperactivity. Also many patients seek relief from computer related eye strain.

A vital aspect of vision is the relationship between the mind and body, meaning that emotional problems can manifest in visual symptoms. Dr. Wintrob published a chapter in The Whole Mind: The Definitive Guide to Complementary Treatments for Mind, Mood and Emotion exploring this topic in greater detail.
