At the Neuro Visual Center of New York, we strive to give our patients the best care possible 100% of the time. In an effort to continually learn and grow for the benefit of her patients, our primary optometric physician, Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff, is a member of several professional associations related to optometry.
The American Optometric Association (AOA)
The American Optometric Association is the leading authority on quality eye care and a representative of more than 44,000 doctors, professionals and students of optometry across the country. Members of this association strive to take a leading role in the eye and vision care of their patients, as well as their overall health. Those who are a part of the AOA take part in regular, extensive training in all areas of eye care advancements, from the diagnosis and treatment of macular injuries, disorders and diseases, to systemic diseases that first manifest in the eye. Being a part of this association keeps Dr. Cheryl at the top of her field and gives her the knowledge to be able to recognize, treat and manage eye conditions that she may not have been able to otherwise.
The Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA)
Balance is something that most people take for granted – unless you’re one of the 35% of adults over 40 (an estimated 69 million people) who have suffered injury or damage to the vestibular organs and have to deal with dizziness and nausea, along with other symptoms of vestibular disorders. Dr. Cheryl is a professional member of the Vestibular Disorders Association, which provides a lifeline to people who suffer from such disorders, giving them credible information about their condition and the resources to connect them with medical professionals, like Dr. Cheryl, who specialize in diagnosing and treating vestibular disorders.
The New York State Optometric Association (NYSOA)
The New York State Optometric Association is a not-for-profit organization that works in association with the AOA. The NYSOA works with local optometric societies across New York, which are important for optometrists like Dr. Cheryl to be able to collaborate with their colleagues and provide each other support. Members are devoted to serving their communities in a variety of ways:
Educating the public about the importance of vision care and health through community screening programs, projects and special events. One such event that happened recently was New York’s first-ever School Vision Health Month in October. As part of this event, the New York State Education Department worked together with the New York State Optometric Association, VSP Global and the New York State Society of Opticians to provide glasses, exams and other resources at no cost to students at seven schools across New York.
Offering seminars to professionals on practice management and professionalism, and continuing education to stay up-to-date on new information, techniques and procedures.
Maintaining a voice in government decision-making and regulatory processes that affect optometrists in New York State.
Providing community screenings programs as a service to the community.
