COVD Annual Meeting

COVD Annual Meeting

During the week of April 9-13, Dr. Sapossnek and Marya attended the COVD (College of Optometrists in Vision Development) Annual Meeting in Bellevue, WA. 

Marya began the process of becoming a COVT (Certified Optometric Vision Therapist) in May 2017, after an inspiring weekend of training in Vision Therapy treatment for strabismus and amblyopia, given by the staff at Vision Therapy Group in Flint, Michigan.

Certification required answering 9 open-book essay questions with the guidance of Dr. Sapossnek and COVT Mentor, Patti Andrich, and studying for the multiple choice exam and oral interview. Marya completed the final steps of certification during Monday and Tuesday of the COVD Annual Meeting.

Between COVT certification and COVD events and courses, Marya spent time with family and did some sightseeing around Bellevue and Seattle.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."
    The Harrison Family
  • "Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
    Shelly
  • "I’ve been going to Dr. Anderson for over five years now and even though I only see him once a year for my annual exam, he and his staff always make me feel very welcome and take care of all my eye care needs. Anderson Optometry is the best at what they do and make you feel right at home."
