Introduction to Optometry:

 


What our colleagues are saying about xR:

PAUL COLBOURNE, OD, Vision Source—
“If you practice preventative care, xR and Nutritional Genius will change how you care for your patients, friends, and family. How many times a day do patients ask, "What can I do to keep my eyes healthy and what supplements should I be taking?". As Optometrists, it’s in our Oath to provide our patients with the best care. My practice philosophy is to ‘focus on the person behind the eyes’. xR is helping me to do exactly that.”

NATHAN SCHRAMM, OD, CNS, Power Practice—
"I believe the tide is turning. More patients are becoming interested in preventative care. Everyday I make recommendations to my patients based on longitudinal studies. But, now there is a genetic test that can be done to determine what nutrients an individual needs, what foods to eat, and what foods to avoid. By taking in the right nutrients, we can impact the methylation in the body and help correctly turn genes on and off. Methylation issues have been associated with eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. It is an exciting time to be an eye doctor!"



JOHN BURNS OD, Nominee for OD of the Year, 2014—
“I have endured many a change in my 20 year career. In an effort to expand my services I came across xR at a national meeting and was so impressed I did the test on myself. It has changed my life and my practice. I implemented the Nutritional Genius Program into my office immediately, allowing me to offer prevention and build patient loyalty. The ability to care for the whole of patient and not just their vision is very rewarding.”

J.D. MILLER, Jr., OD, ABO—
"I have read their book. This stuff is solid. I have also talked with Dr. Sedlacek and Dr. Rozakis on the phone numerous times. xR has done their homework in this worthwhile effort. Why not be on the forefront for a change!”


BRAD SMITH, OD and Founder of PECAA—
“The results were spot on and extremely valuable. I am personally feeling the benefits of the program. The custom pack system makes compliance with the program effortless. We are implementing Nutritional Genius in our own practice, as well as throughout PECAA in a national roll-out. This will clearly put our doctor members at the forefront of preventive care by providing a wellness model that is not only beneficial to patients, but also in-line with our goal to make optometrists relevant in emerging models of care.”

CARY HERZBERG, OD, FOAA, IAO, AAOMC—
“I lead a large international group of eye professionals who are all about preventing eye disease. The challenges that are present today make mapping the human genome an absolute must if we are to understand how complex and multi-factorial many diseases that involve the eye can be. With any good map you need a reliable compass and that is what xR is to the field of preventative medicine. I am very excited for our profession's future!”

DOUG RIPKIN MD, Ophthalmologist, Glaucoma Specialist—
“The epigenetic literature is compelling to the point where it meets the criteria as set forth by the American Academy of Ophthalmology that this type of genetic testing should be offered to patients. We look forward to gathering data with our Optometric colleagues to fully understand its value.”

JASON CLOPTON, OD, FCOVD, ABO, IDOC—
“In the future, doctors will be focused on prevention of disease instead of waiting for disease to happen. Genetic tests, lab tests, and the examination will now determine precise patient needs. We are shifting from a model of acute care to preventative care. With xR, I am on the leading edge of this movement. Patients are looking for true health and wellness and I am able to provide information for my patients to guide their medical future. The Nutritional Genius program through xR is one of the tools we use to promote our practice as unique and far advanced in our understanding of health.”
