Brock Memorial Award for outstanding clinical performance in vision therapy. She then continued her education by completing the Irwin B Suchoff residency in vision rehabilitation where she obtained advanced clinical training in vision therapy, pediatrics, and eye exams for children with special needs.
Dr. Sangani believes that both clear vision and efficient visual skills and processing are essential for reaching your full potential in school, work and overall well being. Her comprehensive approach to vision evaluates all aspects of the visual system, including how the eyes work together, focus, and track as well as how they integrate with the body and brain. She has effectively treated all types of binocular and eye movement disorders including, but not limited to, strabismus, amblyopia, eye coordination problems, learning-related vision problems, and visual processing deficits secondary to acquired brain injury. Dr. Sangani is a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) and an active member of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD).
