Vision Therapy is a doctor-supervised, non-surgical, individualized treatment program designed to correct certain vision problems or enhance and improve visual skills.
Our doctors believe some vision problems cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses (which help focus light properly to provide a clear image). Eye surgery alters the anatomy of the surrounding muscles to make eyes appear straight. Vision therapy engages the brain and visual motor feedback to help create new neural pathways which can help improve the following conditions:
- Eye Alignment / Strabismus / Eye Turns / Lazy Eye / Double Vision
- Eye Teaming / Convergence Insufficiency / Poor Binocularity / Double Vision / Blur
- Eye Focusing Abilities / Accommodative Insufficiency / Inability to clear near to far targets
- Amblyopia / Brain Trauma Rehabilitation / Sports Vision Enhancement
Vision therapy is like physical therapy for the entire visual system by improving the efficiency between the eyes and the brain.
Vision therapy includes the use of lenses, prisms, filters, computerized visual activities, and non-computerized viewing instruments. Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed and reinforced to become reflexive or automatic through repetition and neural integration.
Vision is an integral part of learning. Vision therapy can correct vision problems that interfere with efficient reading among school-aged children. If the visual system functions inadequately, reading becomes cumbersome and difficult. When the visual system functions efficiently, reading and learning can be enjoyed without struggle. Vision therapy does not treat learning disabilities.
It is our goal to treat vision problems that cannot be treated successfully with eyeglasses, contact lenses, and/or surgery alone, and help people achieve clear comfortable binocular vision.

“This place is really great. Everything went smoothly from scheduling my appointment, to my eye exam, to picking out frames and lenses, to finally picking up my glasses. The store is bright and clean. My eye exam was effortless and very professional. The only regret I have is that I didn't find this clinic sooner! I'll definitely be going back for any eye exam/glasses needs.”
