A FEW OF OUR SUCCESS STORIES
"My daughter has greatly benefited from therapy. In less than 3 months she has gone from having trouble tracking and getting headaches while reading to reading fluently and loving books. She reports that things have gotten easier for her at school in second grade."
"My daughter continues to benefit from the training she received in vision therapy. With improved visual function, we can identify positive changes in school performance, sports participation, and even attitude and personality. In school her grades have improved tremendously and the time to complete homework and assignments have been significantly reduced. This has been a real boost to her self-esteem. It seems everything has now come together for her."
"Vision therapy has improved my reading, spelling, and writing skills. It has also reduced my clumsiness and I hardly have any more headaches. the people at the doctor's office are really nice and the homework was fun!"
What is Vision Therapy?
Vision Therapy consists of a series of activities that target and challenge visual skills that are diagnosed as deficient. ‘Target’ means the Vision Therapy procedure requires the patient to actively use the skill being trained to complete it. ‘Challenge’ means the activity is appropriately difficult for the present level of the skill being trained. The patient practices the Vision Therapy procedure until it is no longer challenging. The goal of vision therapy is to maximize the visual function of each patient so that they may perform to their full potential in everyday visually demanding tasks and environments.
