Vision Beyond Sight with Dr. Lynn Hellerstein


For more than 45 years as a developmental optometrist, I’ve helped thousands of people transform their lives through their vision training and visualization. People with learning and reading problems, special needs, double vision, crossed eyes, lazy eyes, ADHD, dyslexia, and/or brain injury have greatly benefited from this vision work, as have athletes, musicians and exceptional performers. Billions of people have vision problems and vision is more than 20/20 eyesight.

Now, my passion has shifted from treating patients individually with traditional vision problems to empowering people to utilize their inner vision through visualization. My mission is to inspire and empower millions of people through their vision and visualization skills so that they may see and experience their world through the lens of clarity, courage and confidence.

I am Dr. Lynn. And with my new way to look at your life through a new “lens”, you will be ready to meet yourself and receive visualizations for miracles to come. I invite you to join me as I reach for the following goals for this podcast:

  • Bring awareness to parents/teachers/health professionals about the importance of eye health, early evaluation/ treatment intervention, and vision therapy;
  • Create a non-profit mechanism to support vision therapy across the US for those who are unable to afford vision therapy treatment;
  • Speak/teach on the power of visualization, and transform lives thru visioning;
  • Bring awareness about health/wellness treatments beyond traditional Western medicine like functional medicines and Eastern medicines; and
  • Leave optometry, my family and the world a legacy of making a difference in the lives of people.

Does your inner vision match your outer vision?

Most limit their vision. Your vision does not limit you.

Contrary to popular belief, 20/20 isn't perfect vision.

YOU too can expand your vision and gain clarity, courage and confidence.


Your vision does not define you…you define your vision. A VISION BEYOND SIGHT.
