Over 70% of learning happens visually. Fortunately, we can assess and improve visual skills at any age with vision therapy.
Reduce eyestrain and fatigue associated with prolonged visual tasks.
Many post-concussion symptoms are visual and can linger for years after injury. Take back control and improve lifestyle outcomes.
Programs aimed at eliminating or reducing an eye turn (strabismus) or lazy eye (ambylopia).
Bring your game to the next level by improving visual efficiency and accuracy.
Underlying visual deficiencies may be making it harder for a child to succeed at reading.
An initial consultation is a complete binocular vision assessment. During this session, we test the accuracy and efficiency of the eyes for the necessary visual skills including:
Visual skills will be assessed objectively with a comparison to age-specific normative data. Areas of deficiency will be highlighted and presented with recommendations in a written report. This report is yours to keep and may be shared with other members of your healthcare team. We believe in a collaborative approach as improving underlying visual errors will allow for more substantial gains to be made in other areas of rehabilitation.
Please budget 90-120 minutes for your initial assessment. If you are unable to participate for this period of time, we are happy to schedule two separate appointments. If you fatigue greatly with effort, perhaps arrange for a driver. Dilation drops will be used when indicated.
We are happy to now offer online booking for new consultations or are happy to find a better time if you call our office directly. Please note that an intake form and questionnaire will be sent in advance of your appointment.
Our Vision Therapy program consists of weekly, 50-minute sessions lead by a Vision Therapist. Each exercise in the session will have been designed with your goals and identified weaknesses in mind. Activities will vary week-to-week and use a variety of equipment. Therapy sessions are meant to be a challenge but aim to be fun and interactive at every increasing skill level.
Following each therapy session, activities will be assigned for daily practice at home. These tasks will vary weekly and the necessary equipment will be provided to you at no extra cost. For best success in the program, it is expected that 20 minutes of the assigned visual activities are completed each day at home.
The number of sessions required will vary based on the person, visual condition, therapy goals and neurological response. Average treatment lengths are between 10-30 sessions, which will be better estimated after the initial consultation.
