“Since the day I finished training with Dr. Shuldiner in 2006, I have been an effective, confident, low vision doctor. His coaching opened my mind to a new way of thinking, not only in low vision (which has been great!) but in my life. Also, the sharing and camaraderie within our group are priceless.”

Dr. Jarrod Long, OD. Bloomington, Indiana
