Vision & Learning
One out of four children have vision problems that keep them from reaching their potential in school. Many of these children are mislabeled as having ADHD, dyslexia, or a learning disability. We offer tools to help you know the difference. Our self assessment provides a vision symptom checklist and will score you or your child’s likelihood of a vision problem that impacts learning. We also give a free screening at our clinic.
Lazy Eye & Wandering/Crossed Eyes
Clinically known as Amblyopia and Strabismus, these conditions can successfully be treated with vision therapy. Akin to physical therapy for the eyes, often with vision therapy, surgery can be avoided, or at a minimum increase the success of surgery. Additionally, vision therapy helps to solve the underlying problem of these conditions by helping teach the brain how to use the eyes together to gain depth perception.
Concussions & TBI
Vision is processed in almost every part of the brain. So, if you receive a head injury, the likelihood of it affecting vision is very high. When dizziness, nausea, double vision, light sensitivity, and headaches are not otherwise understood, they could be related to vision concerns. Vision therapy may be able to correct these areas.
Vision therapy is a tool that can help many problems that are not often attributed to vision. If you or your child struggle with headaches, poor reading comprehension, struggling to get work done in a timely manner, or if performance doesn’t match potential, there may be a vision problem getting in the way.
