Dr. Tasman Continues His 50 In 50 With A Visit To Dr. Nadira Shadeed
Dr. Tasman continued his 50 in 50 with a visit to Dr. Nadira Shadeed, OD, FCOVD. Dr. Shadeed graduated from Southern College of Optometry and started the Pediatric Vision Development Center of Gwinnett in 2008. She decided to focus her practice on vision therapy but was not able to find an electronic health records software that met the needs of her vision therapy exclusive practice. That's when Dr. Shadeed and her husband, Joe Rouw, OD, FAAO, decided to make their own. They teamed up a software development and created a company called Nu Squared. Nu Squared has now developed their software called Nu Vision VT. www.nusquared.com
Nu Vision VT is designed for offices that perform vision therapy and allows them to perform and record vision therapy sessions and vision therapy testing. They have even developed an iPad app that allows offices to record their results during vision therapy sessions on an iPad. This has allowed Dr. Shadeed to stay mobile during her vision therapy sessions while still going paperless.
Nu Squared debuted their Nu Vision VT Software last fall at the COVD meeting with great interest from doctors and therapists and saw an even greater interest at this year's COVD meeting in October.

NOT ALL VISION THERAPY IS PERFORMED THE SAME
Dr. Shadeed performs in-depth testing for functional
and developmental visual skills to determine how well the child's eyes work together and to evaluate their visual processing skills. Dr. Shadeed works together with the child and the parents with one-on-one
in-office optometric vision therapy. This allows for the best environment for the understanding of each of the goals in developing the child's visual performance.
