He co-manages patients with occupational and physical therapists in his practice, and his wife, Maxine Scheiman, has been an occupational therapist for more than 20 years.

Review:

“This is a wonderful resource for occupational therapists who work with patients with vision disorders. It is well written and easy to understand, even for those with no previous experience in this area. It is important for optometrists and occupational therapists to work together and this book provides the necessary tools to accomplish this.”             

- Brian Marshall, OD, Marshall Family Eye Care, Doody’s Review Service 

“This book is a thorough and practical resource for occupational therapists interested in this topic.  Therapists will find assessment and intervention strategies to use with their clients, in addition to a more comprehensive understanding of the visual system and optometric interventions.  I believe the goal of this book has been achieved and closer partnership between occupational therapy and eye care professionals will be achieved by those who read this book, in addition to better treatment strategies and outcomes for our clients.”

- Kim Marion, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy
