Dr. Lentfer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lentfer "I've have enjoyed practicing in Alaska since 1996. It's the place I love to live and play with my family and friends. My family eye care and eye exams are customized to a patients individual needs for vision. After two years of additional Neuro training, we assess and individuals specific needs and visual system to come up with the most accurate and comfortable vision possible. Additionally at Katmai Eye, we have handcrafted eye wear and the highest quality of optics and coatings provided in eyeglass lenses which will further enhance vision. The additional Nuero training (related to vision therapy) has brought my vision care to the next level allowing me to treat learning difficulties, vision information processing and eye movement disorders, these are conditions that are often diagnosed as ADD, ADHD, dyslexsia and more. I Nuero train traumatic brain injuries (TBI) with visual information processing and coordination, allowing individuals to regain much of their normal daily functioning. My Sport Vision Training has raised athletes to the next level by having an advantage with eye-hand coordination, reaction time and increased visual information processing. Skiing, coaching, mountain and snow biking, hiking, hunting, fishing and flying are just some of my loves. After growing up in Alaska, I graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and The Eye Institute in 1996 with clinical honors. I am past president of the Alaska Optometric Association, legislative key person for the Alaska Optometric Association, members of the national Alaska Optometric Association, Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, Optometric Extension Program, and the College of Optometrists in Vision Development."
