Dr. Amy Coburn joined Drs. Richards and Hinrichsen in July 2009. Dr. Coburn attended optometry school for four years in Memphis where she was president of her class. She has had the unique opportunity to work closely with Dr. Richards and Dr. Hinrichsen in the office and has learned a great deal about children's eye problems of many types. She has more experience with children's eye problems than any optometrist in North Louisiana.
Dr. Coburn offers vision therapy when other forms of treatment have not been successful. Vision therapy is a type of physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It is a highly effective treatment for double vision and convergence insufficiency. Vision therapy is a very effective option.
Dr. Coburn will also work with your child if they desire contact lenses and have never worn them before. It is necessary for your child to have a contact lens fitting. This procedure involves selecting a lens that will fit your child's eye, instructing your child in the proper use of the lenses, and follow up visits to be certain the contact lens is fitting properly.
Dr. Coburn is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Optometric Association of Louisiana.
