Vision Therapy is an individualized, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies.

A full evaluation will help us determine if your child has a visual problem that is interfering with learning. The doctor will also tell you if the problem responds to vision therapy. If vision therapy is indicated, an individualized program can be designed to specifically address the difficulties your child is having. When the visual system functions correctly, learning becomes enjoyable again. Your child is free to think and learn instead of struggling with the reading process. Where books were associated with headaches and discomfort, they can again become gateways to learning. 


Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain's ability to control:

  • Eye Alignment
  • Eye Teaming
  • Eye Focusing Abililties 
  • Eye Movements 
  • Visual Processing 


Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters.

During the final stages of therapy, the patient's newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.
