Dr. Alyssa Fortuna

Alyssa-Fortuna-768x1024
Neuro-Developmental Optometrist

Dr. Alyssa Fortuna’s passion for Vision Therapy grew when she shadowed Dr. O’Connor before applying for Optometry School.  “This passion grew even more after I was hired to work as a Vision Therapist at Dr. O’Connor’s and I began to see the kids lives change first hand!  I remember the Moms saying Dr. O’Connor gave them answers they couldn’t find anywhere else. Their children weren’t stupid or lazy as many people had labeled them – they simply had a vision problem which could be helped.  We can train the eye-brain connection to help the eyes function better as a team and to intake information more efficiently in order to be processed more effectively”.
