Make an appointment with a neuro-developmental optometrist.

Please ask the neuro-developmental optometrist, if they have any suggestions for Dr. Markus' treatment, for example: position of exercises on the table, light in the room etc.
PLEASE ASK FOR A BRIEF NOTE AND BRING IT TO THE APPOINTMENT WITH DR. MARKUS.
