Summit Vision Center is committed to partnering with families to help our patients develop vision and the visual skills necessary for life’s journey. Our focus is children’s vision and vision therapy.
Did you know that 20/20 is not perfect vision? Vision is complex, and not all eye exams are the same. Let us tell you about what makes us unique.
Our BIG focus is on LITTLE Eyes.
Comprehensive Vision Care With A Functional Approach
We provide compassionate, personalized, and friendly pediatric eye health care with a focus on developmental vision and function. We see children from birth to teens and provide vision therapy evaluations for both children and adults. Our goal is to ensure you have the visual skills for learning, sports, driving, and all parts of life. Summit Vision Center provides one-on-one vision therapy for both children and adults. Our individualized vision therapy services develop, or rehabilitate, visual skills and enhance visual performance, empowering our patients to achieve their full potential.
Dr. Tina SchillerOD, FCOVD
Dedicated, enthusiastic, caring, and positive, Dr. Tina’s passion is helping her patients achieve their full potential through vision. She provides eye care for pediatric patients from infancy through teenage years and vision therapy for children struggling with vision problems that interfere with their ability to read, learn, and maintain attention as well as adults struggling with their vision after a head injury or concussion.
We specialize in kids' vision and eye care from infancy to teenage years! A comprehensive eye exam can ensure that your child's vision is supportive of and not interfering with development and learning.
Pediatric Vision Care
A child with 20/20 eyesight can still lack the visual skills necessary for reading, writing, and learning. Vision therapy is similar to how physical, speech, and occupational therapy are delivered and involves individualized treatment plans to develop the visual system to unlock full potential.
Strabismus, “crossed or wandering eye”, and amblyopia, “lazy eye”, are vision disorders that frequently emerge in early childhood. It is important to detect and diagnose early. At Summit Vision Center, we take a binocular and sensory (eye-brain connection) approach to treatment.
Strabismus & Amblyopia
Brain Injuries, including even mild concussions, can lead to huge changes to the visual system causing symptoms like: double vision, blur, and light sensitivity. For those with symptoms, vision therapy is an important piece of the rehabilitation process.
Vision Rehab for Concussion
Myopia, or “nearsightedness” where vision is blurry at far distances, is increasing at an alarming rate, especially among school-aged children, with half of the world’s population expected to be myopic by 2050.
Should you schedule a visual evaluation?
Vision Is More Than 20/20!
Many children with vision problems don’t know that they have one, so they don’t express that they need help. Even if they’ve passed a vision screening, they might be struggling with tracking, teaming, focusing, or visual processing problems that interfere with their ability to read, learn, maintain attention and more.
They might not tell you that they see double when they read, that the words come in and out of focus, or that words and letters look like they’re moving around on the page because they don’t know that this isn’t normal.
Sometimes glasses or contact lenses are the solution and sometimes visual skills need to be developed with vision therapy. We evaluate and treat vision and visual skills in patients of all ages to ensure that vision supports our patients in achieving their goals.
