This week’s featured speaker for our 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium is Heidi Wise, OD, FCOVD. Dr. Wise graduated from Troy State University in 1994 with Bachelor’s degrees in both Math & Chemistry. She continued her education at Southern College of Optometry where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Doctor of Optometry degree in 1998.
Dr. Wise worked in primary care optometry before opening a private practice, PRI Vision in Lincoln, NE which focuses on expanded services including vision training, behavioral optometry and neuro-optometry integrating with the science of Postural Restoration®. These areas focus on helping children and adults gain better vision skills to maximize performance in school, work and while playing sports. She is a member of the American Optometric Association, Nebraska Optometric Association, College of Optometrists in Vision Development, and Heart of America Contact Lens Society. In 2011, Dr. Wise completed her fellowship in the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (FCOVD).
“Dr. Heidi Wise has devoted her professional career to understanding and changing how the visual system impacts human performance. She will enlighten you on how the visual system limits or enhances athletic performance in her two-hour talk, by changing the biomechanics behind a batter’s swing or a golfer’s concentration before a putt. Three key areas that are often not considered reflections of the visual system’s function and behavior include muscle lengthening and strengthening, breathing and the mental game. Should be an eye-opener.” - Ron Hruska
