Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai is all set to host internationally acclaimed ophthalmologists who will be in the emirate to discuss ‘Vision Therapy for Kids’ and how it can be missed during a regular check-up by pediatricians.

Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel DubaiThe talk, organized by the Child Early Intervention Medical Center Dubai on Nov.3, 2014, will feature renowned ophthalmologist speakers headed by Dr. Jeffrey Becker, the Director of Vision Rehabilitation at the Neurosensory Center of Eastern Pennsylvania.

Dr. Becker is trained in the Defeat Autism Now! Approach, and has lectured internationally about vision therapy, autism and rehabilitation for head injury and stroke patients. He has also authored articles about vision therapy and contributed to the book, “Cutting Edge Therapies for Autism.”

The meet, to be held from 5pm-10pm in the fully-equipped conference room of the hotel, will be attended by 50 top Pediatricians, Ophthalmologists and Occupational Therapists.

Mr. Scott Butcher, General Manager of Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai, said that the hotel has always been at the forefront to host such gathering of experts who deliberate on problems faced by the local community as well as the humanity at large.

He added: “The issue of ‘Vision Therapy for Kids’ is of utmost importance in today’s world as an increasing number of children are struggling because of vision problems, consequently they suffer in studies too. Unfortunately, in most of the cases their condition goes undiagnosed during school health screening or during normal check up at the pediatricians as they only check children’s distance vision using the eye chart. This meet will certainly bring the issue to the fore and will pave the way for a healthier lifestyle.”

Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai has partnered with the Child Early Intervention Medical Center Dubai on several occasions including the Autism Walk held earlier this year to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families.

The Hotel staff also frequently participate in such initiatives to show that the community stands together towards a cause, be it joining the entrants for the walkathon in aid of raising awareness of the genetic disorder, breast cancer, diabetes, Autism or just to promote the benefits of a healthier lifestyle.
