Introducing the Vision and Neurodevelopment Laboratory

August 15, 2019

We are pleased to announce Krista Kelly, Ph.D. as Director of the Vision and Neurodevelopment Laboratory!

Dr. Krista Kelly received her Ph.D. from York University in 2014 before joining the Retina Foundation of the Southwest as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Crystal Charity Ball Pediatric Vision Laboratory. She is now transitioning into a new role at the Retina Foundation as the Director of the newly formed Vision and Neurodevelopment Laboratory. Dr. Kelly will be working with children with pediatric eye conditions, focusing her efforts on the impact reduced vision has on reading speed, eye-hand coordination, and motor skills.

Dr. Kelly shares that early detection and early treatment of lazy eye are crucial for obtaining the best vision outcomes. She suggests following the vision screening recommendations of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.
