To describe Lora McGraw would be impossible without using the words: creative, intelligent, passionate and a slew of other adjectives. For those who had the pleasure of knowing her, she was one of the vision therapy greats. It has been noted that in all her years of doing vision therapy she never did a procedure the same way twice. She published countless papers for OEP, lectured several times at the Southern California Regional Vision Therapist Forum and many other venues and wrote the book Guiding Strabismus Therapy which is a staple for any VT office.
In 1986 an award was established in her name, The Lora McGraw Award for Excellence in Vision Therapy. Lora was the first to receive this award.
In order to qualify for this award the nominee must fit the following qualifications:
Participate in VT outreach in the community

Lecture on the topic of vision therapy or have been published regarding vision therapy in a known publication
Steady involvement in the Southern California Regional Vision Therapist Forum or OEP
