M. Stuart Tessler, OD, FCSO


Dr. Tessler was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. He received his BS degree in Health Science from the
State University of New York at Buffalo, and went on to receive a second BS degree in Visual Science
and his doctorate from Pennsylvania College of Optometry.

After graduation Dr. Tessler moved to Denver, Colorado and built a thriving practice. In 1990 he was introduced to a little-known esoteric light therapy. For the next seven years, he explored the use of light as a tool for the treatment of various vision and eye-related problems.

During those years it became apparent that his patients were often experiencing more than just changes in their vision. Changes seemed to be occurring at much deeper levels. People were reporting feeling more relaxed, less stressed and functioning better. They were more open, more receptive and seeing their lives with a new and broader perspective. It was clear that he was tapping into something that was changing the quality of life of those he treated.

In 1997, Dr. Tessler sold his optometric practice to devote himself to researching and refining this new work.    From those efforts, Fight or Flight Therapy was born.

Dr. Tessler currently practices in Denver and is having very gratifying success with most stress- and
trauma-related conditions, including stress, anxiety, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), concussions and TBI (traumatic brain injuries), as well as, personal growth, quality of life, peak performance, and more.

"It was wonderful helping people see better, but now people's lives are changing!"
