We'll break into groups with several rebounder mini-trampolines to explore this powerful vision doorway.

Larhken has been instructing in Brain Gym for 30 years, including many workshops specifically for Vision Improvement.

- Two panel discussions - Getting Your Practice Started, and How Do We Approach Eye Diseases? We will aim for a wide input of ideas as we share our enthusiasm for these challenging yet exciting subjects.
- Ray Gottlieb - What I've Found to Work for Presbyopia - from an innovative optometrist. Ray created the amazing fusion chart many of us have used to sharper close vision.
