Today Dr. Trayford shares brain training tip number 117. Getting your eyes checked usually means getting glasses, but Dr. Trayford would also want to look at how your eyes move. People come into his office for performance, attention anxiety, etc. and one of the first things Dr. Trayford looks at is the eyes. Using Videonystagmography, seeing how well you move your eyes slow, how well you move your eyes fast, and the ability to hold your eyes on a target, he can help diagnose which part of the brain is not working properly. Think about getting your eyes tested in this way. Thanks for listening!

If you have any concerns regarding the information and applications discussed in this podcast, please consult your physician and a doctor who is experienced in functional neurology. Michael Trayford DC, DACNB is available for consultation by calling (828) 708-5274. Thanks for listening.
