Special interest and goals within Optometry:
Since 1986 I have been in private general optometric vision care practice in the southern part of Juttland. After completing C.O.V.D. Fellowship in 1995, I have been mainly occupied in education, vision training, remediation and rehabilitation of functional visual problems, including those caused by brain injury. This work supports my main interest is vision, as it develops through interaction of sensor and motor components of the human organism and nervous system. I find it exiting how theories of self organizing complex systems and chaos often apply to vision, as to many other aspects of our world. I put special interest to educational and developmental aspects on the field of vision. My primary goal is to constantly increase my level of understanding of the nature of light and human vision, and bringing this knowledge to action.
