Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff became interested in neurovisual optometry and the treatment of vertical heterophoria after reading an article about a pioneer in the field, Dr. Debby Feinberg of Vision Specialists of Michigan. Dr. Cheryl was so intrigued that she reached out to Dr. Debby for more information, and even visited her practice. To make a long story short, Dr. Cheryl fell in love with the work, began training with Dr. Debby and established the Neuro Visual Center of New York.
Dr. Cheryl is one of the few optometrists in the country trained in the Feinberg Method, and the only one in New York with this specialized training in eye misalignment. This training, along with over 20 years of experience in optometry, gives Dr. Cheryl and her colleague, Dr. Marissa Zimmerman, the expertise necessary to provide treatments for uncommon visual conditions.
Vertical heterophoria is most often characterized by symptoms of migraines and dizziness, nausea and blurred or double vision. When patients visit us with these problems, our goal is to eliminate their symptoms and get their vision functioning optimally again as quickly as possible. We treat often-misdiagnosed vision problems such as binocular vision dysfunction, and help our patients gain a better understanding of how their visual system works. We always use the latest techniques and technology to diagnose and treat such neurovisual disorders, and you can be assured that these solutions will help reduce the headaches, dizziness and anxiety that understandably results from experiencing these conditions.
We accept insurance from multiple providers, including United Health Care, Oxford Freedom, Blue Cross Blue Shield and many more.

Once the doctors figure out the source of the problem, they can offer solutions in the form of custom prismatic lenses to treat BVD, comprehensive neurovisual and optometric examinations, and custom eyewear for computer use and sports, among others.
