Dr. Roth is Board Certified in Vision Development and Vision Therapy by the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. He is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
The College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) is a non-profit, international membership association of eye care professionals. COVD provides board certification for eye doctors who are prepared to offer state-of-the-art services in:
- Behavioral and Developmental Vision Care
- Vision Therapy
- Visual Rehabilitation
These specialized vision care services develop and enhance visual abilities and correct many vision problems in infants, children, and adults.
The COVD International Examination and Certification Board process includes a rigorous evaluation of the eye care professional's knowledge and abilities in providing developmental and behavioral vision care for patients. Optometrists who successfully complete their certification process are Board Certified in Vision Development and Vision Therapy and are designated Fellows of COVD (FCOVD).
Vision care provided by all COVD members is based on the principle that vision can be developed and changed. For example, we know that infants are not born with fully developed visual abilities and that good vision is developed through a learned process.
