Dr. Sam Berne has been in private practice in New Mexico for over 25 years and is an established leader in functional medicine. He holds a Bachelor of Science from Pennsylvania State University, Doctor of Optometry from Pennsylvania College and did his postdoctoral work at the Gesell Institute in collaboration with Yale University. He has been awarded The Special Awards for Service from the Behavioral Optometrists in New Mexico for his innovative and holistic work with children.
Dr. Berne uses holisitic optometry and vision therapy to improve eye health, vision and overall wellness. He understands and treats the body as one integrated system, rather than a collection of independent organs, in order to identify and address the root causes of disease. This approach views each person as genetically and biochemically unique, therefore his treatment methods are personalized and tailored to the individual.
Dr. Berne uses Whole Health Methods to give patients’ approachable, immediately usable, and powerful protocols for improving their vision and wellness. He has developed innovative methods for healing the mind-body-spirit through eye therapy and provides individuals with natural alternatives for reducing disease and improving vitality. These methods offer a holistic solution to children and adults with Autism, ADHD, Cataracts, Dry Eye, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and many other diseases.
