NeuroDynamic Vision (NDV) was founded by Optometrist Warren Modlin, an industry veteran with over 25 years of experience including eight years at Oakley. NeuroDynamic Vision was created as a resource for eye care professionals to expand their value in a highly competitive market place with retail consolidation, online competition, AI and technology in the area of vision performance for athletes.

In this podcast, Warren explains where to find the latest scientific evidence  and resources on the subject of vision performance. He explains how the techniques used by NeuroDynamic Vision can evaluate concussion protocols and help bring athletes back on the road to wellness.

According to Warren, “The core of what we offer is the understanding that vision goes beyond 20/20.” Optometry is at the forefront of eye-mind-body connection and optimizing human performance.

Warren shares his insights on how Optometrists can bring vision performance into their practice and how to market and manage a practice conducive to athletes.
