Dr. Bryce Appelbaum,
O.D, F.C.O.V.D

     Dr. Appelbaum is a board certified Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development and an Adjunct Clinical Professor at the Southern College of Optometry. He completed his undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis where he majored in Psychology and Pre-Medical studies and graduated with clinical honors from The Illinois College of Optometry.

    Dr. Appelbaum has worked with hundreds of professional athletes, numerous professional and collegiate sport teams, and countless amateur athletes to transform raw talent into honed performance through vision.  These athletes include NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and NWSL players, professional golfers, volleyball and tennis players, and Olympic fencers, gymnasts, swimmers, archers, and shooters. 

     Dr. Appelbaum also helps teams consider who to draft or sign as free agents based on assessing a player’s visual potential and identifying how far off they may be from operating at that ceiling. 

     Dr. Appelbaum owns Appelbaum Vision, PC, a private practice specializing in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation with offices in Bethesda and Annapolis Maryland.  Away from the office, Dr. Appelbaum chases after his three kids and enjoys golf and working out.
