Dr. Anne Hanna, formerly Reuter, is a Neuro-Optometrist, fellowship-trained and board-certified in Neuro/Developmental Optometry and Vision Therapy. After completing her optometric training at the SUNY College of Optometry in 2008, and following her rotations through the Brooklyn VA system, Dr. Hanna joined Lenox Hill Community Medical Group in New York City, a hospital-based, multi-specialty medical group where she developed advanced clinical expertise in the diagnosis and management of ocular disease.
She then developed and directed the binocular vision department at The Brown Center in Providence, Rhode Island, where she specialized in pediatrics, functional vision performance and neuro-rehab. Currently, she is a professor in the field of Neuro-Optometry, Binocular Vision and Neurological Rehabilitation and MCPHS University, as well as a private practitioner in Oyster Bay, specializing in neuro-cognitive and athletic vision performance.
As a competitive soccer player herself, she has been in the athletic circuit most of her life – knowing what it takes to personally succeed in sports. As a senior in college at the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Hanna personally went through a visual training program that revolutionized the way she functioned visually – increasing her performance in both the classroom and on the field. Inspired, Dr. Hanna went on to become an optometrist, providing the same services to others from which she so profoundly benefitted.
Professionally, she has worked with athletes of all ages and skill levels, with a particular focus on helping amateur athletes become elite players and continuing to further enhance the visual skills of athletes at the professional level.
Dr. Hanna has had numerous publications in the field of Ocular Disease, as well as Vision Rehabilitation, and is an active investigator for PEDIG (Pediatric Eye Disease Investigators Group). She is also avidly involved in the community – being the optometrist for multiple charitable organizations, providing eye care to at-risk women and children, as well as outreach programs in the Bronx.
Dr. Hanna and her team were the doctors of choice for the Massachusetts school screening effort, where she 1and her team reformed screening protocols, winning her a scholarship award in the field.
