Living In Interesting Times…

So, I was surfing and came across an optometry office that offers Vision Therapy as one of their services.

Vision Therapy is the treatment of vision issues that can impair a person’s ability to read, develop good hand-eye coordination, etc…

Generally the children receiving these services, have physical, mental or learning challenges such as ADD or Dyslexia.

I began to ponder this as a possible career consideration as I just know I’m going to miss the contact with special needs children that has been such a huge part of my life.

Not being one to leave any stone unturned, any curiousity unsatisfied, I emailed the optometrist in charge, asking her for some information on Vision Therapy…

Not 24 hours later I received a lovely reply, and the offer of a job interview…

Hmmm…Life certainly is – as Spock would say – fascinating.

I guess I should see where this might lead…
