There’s Hope In Sight.

Treat learning difficulties at their source by correcting functional vision issues.

80% of what children learn is based on what they SEE. Your child may have a “vision” problem – even with 20/20 eyesight. That’s because VISION occurs in the BRAIN and not in the eyes!

Is your child bright but frustrated and underperforming academically, athletically, or even socially? How many times have you heard that your child is bright but doesn’t apply themselves or work hard enough?

When a child’s visual system is not working properly, it causes them to work harder (overcompensate) with less- than-optimal results. The cascading effect is the inability to reach their potential, resulting in low self- confidence, struggle, exhaustion, frustration, and the inability to thrive, academically, socially and athletically. It doesn’t have to be this way!

Optometric Vision Therapy is essentially physical therapy for your visual system and teaches your eyes and brain to work together as a team. Our highly trained doctors and vision therapy specialists use a proven, individually tailored approach to introduce, improve and reinforce functional vision skills like tracking, teaming, focusing, and visual processing. Vision Therapy is one of the best investments you can make in your child’s future – results are invaluable and lasting.
