Vision therapy can enhance one’s visual abilities by learning how to use his or her eyes together collaboratively. Through enhanced visual awareness and practice by the use of specialized computer and optical devices, therapy improves skills such as focusing, eye teaming, and eye tracking.
When the visual system functions correctly and efficiently, the energy saved can be used to improve reading comprehension. Learning becomes enjoyable again, allowing one to think more clearly and learn more quickly rather than struggling to read and comprehend written material. Books become gateways and will no longer be associated with headaches and discomfort.
A full evaluation by a developmental optometrist will help determine if a visual problem is interfering with you or your child’s reading and learning skills. If the doctor identifies a problem that will benefit from vision therapy, an individualized program will be designed to address the specific visual difficulties. Evaluation details provided below.
- Binocular Examination & Information Processing Evaluation
This two hour evaluation will thoroughly examine your visual system including eye coordination, focusing, and perceptual skills.
- An extended report is prepared and discussed regarding problems identified from the initial evaluation and the treatment options available.

If therapy is deemed appropriate, an individualized program will be created to be completed at our office
