Does any of the following describe your life?

  • Your bright child struggles with reading.
  • You are losing the homework wars: twenty minutes of homework takes hours.
  • Headaches and eyestrain persist even though a routine eye exam uncovered no problem.
  • You or your child loves books but hates reading.
  • Poor depth perception interferes with driving, sports, or confidence.
  • Your eyes won't stay straight. You are tired of surgery and patching.

What is Vision Therapy?

Briefly defined, “vision therapy” is like physical therapy for the eyes, teaching you to coordinate your eyes with each other as well as with your hands, body and brain.

In a vision therapy program, we use instruments, special lenses and exercises to give feedback if your eyes are working correctly or incorrectly. This feedback guides you to unlearn poor seeing habits and develop correct ones. Just as when you learned to drive a car, you’ll begin by having to think about how you’re using your eyes. In time, you’ll learn to see more quickly, accurately, and comfortably on a second-nature basis.
