Vision Therapy & Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation
What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is an in-office and at-home based vision treatment program that utilizes a variety of specialized tools and equipment under the supervision of a vision care professional who specializes in developmental optometry. The therapy aims to retrain and enhance visual motor functioning and visual processing ability.
Five Most Common Signs that a vision problem may be interfering with Near vision
- Skips or repeats lines while reading
- Poor reading comprehension
- Near work takes a long time
- Reverse letters like “b” into “d”
- Short attention span with near work
Who can benefit from vision therapy?
People who experience:
- Poor ability to track and fixate
- Poor attention and concentration
- Poor binocularity
- Lazy eye/Strabismus
- Headache/Dizziness/Nausea when focusing
- Inconsistent performance in sports
- Poor depth perception
- Reverses letters, words, or directions
- Difficulty copying from the blackboard
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)/ Aquired Brain Injury (ABI)
- Loss of visual function due to neurological condition(ie. Stroke, Nerve palsy)
How does our vision therapy program work?
Vision therapy is conducted in-office once or twice a week for 45 minutes and home therapy is assigned on a daily basis.
Our weekly office therapy sessions involve different procedures with various lenses, prisms, filters and patches to develop fundamental visual skills and abilities, improve visual comfort, and promote visual processing.
The therapy sessions are customized for each individual’s needs. Depending on the severity of the visual condition, visual needs and visual goals, the duration of the program will vary.

Post-Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injury/Aquired Brain Injury
After a neurological impairment such as a head injury, stroke or other neurological conditions, patients suffer from a neural disconnect between vision, balance and sensory processing. Due to poor integration of the vision, balance and sensory processing, simple daily tasks such as reading, writing, speaking, and balance are affected. These patients often suffer from constant headaches, light sensitivity, poor concentration, spatial disorientation and blurred or double vision.
Our neuro-optometric rehabilitation program is an individualized patient treatment regimen to help improve patients’ vision, body movement and coordination, and sensory processing to be more balanced and more effectively integrated to overcome their overall visual deficiency.
Do you notice any of these symptoms?
- Light sensitivity
- Blurred/ Double vision
- Dizziness and Vertigo
- Eye fatigue
- Poor Concentration and Memory
- Poor eye movement and control
- Recent onset of eye turns (ie. IN/OUT/UP/DOWN)
- Unstable peripheral vision
- Poor balance
- Mood changes
- Sleeping problem
We truly believe we can train and help overcome visual deficiencies!
MIND - BODY - ACTION
The visual system plays an important role in the input and output of information to the brain. Therefore, early remediation of the visual deficiencies will speed up the recovery of total visual function as well as improve patients’ quality of life.
