Press Release Summary: The sudden and unexpected closure of Dore's UK Centre network
has stunned the public. With the immediate cease of Dore Programme activity, clients
now face a halt to their treatment and an uncertain future.

Press Release Body: BABO members make up a network of highly qualified and motivated
optometrists. They are aware of the positive work carried out by Dore and have been
monitoring the situation closely. They recognise there is an important gap to fill
in the continuing treatment of Dore's clients.

While BABO members are extremely concerned to hear about Dore's closure, there is an
obvious opportunity for BABO members to continue the treatment for Dore clients.
BABO member Clare Holland comments:

"The exercises that the Dore Programme embodies are important and work to address
balance and Cerebellum issues. BABO member practices would look to continue
exercises of this type as part of a broader range of treatment. Importantly,
behavioural optometry would take things a stage further, looking at the whole area
of vision therapy as a method of assessing any issues. I think there is a strong
opportunity to make a real difference to these people's lives."
