We truly believe in routine eye examinations so that you can see as clearly as possible. Once you have to get glasses or contacts, it is even more important to watch the health of your eyes. You also need routine checks to ensure your prescription has not changed.
To ensure good eye health and vision, we are very proud to offer the following services:
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.
Sports Vision Training
A sports vision training program can be individualized to fit your specific needs and goals. For example, in archery it is important to know which eye is dominant so you can choose the right bow to align with the target. We will help you determine this. In many cases, it is not actually the eye that people may think.
Depending on your sport and the results of comprehensive eye testing, you may need training that will help you with skills such as anticipating the trajectory of a bouncing ball. Computer simulations can be used as training tools, including those that help batters accurately anticipate where a fastball or a curve ball will be located when it’s time to take a swing.
Some sports vision specialists even use techniques such as visual imagery (visualization) to help athletes imagine themselves performing at a peak level. You may be asked to see yourself dashing across the finish line in record time or aiming your rifle in precisely the right way to hit the target. These are just a few examples of how sports vision training can be extremely beneficial to you.
Reading and Learning Disabilities
Approximately 80 percent of what children learn in school is presented to them visually. Experts say that vision and learning are closely related and good vision is vital for students to be able to reach their fullest academic potential.
When a child has difficulty in school, this could be an indicator of vision problems and should be evaluated right away.
Beyond the common problems of nearsightedness and farsightedness, there is a wealth of other visual disorders that can make the learning process more difficult. These disorders are less obvious and relate to the ways the eyes function and the ways the brain processes this visual information. Vision-related learning problems should not be confused with learning disabilities.
Some common symptoms of vision-related learning problems include headaches, eye strain, blurred or double vision, crossed eyes or eyes that move independently from each other, reading or writing close up to the face, excessive blinking or rubbing the eyes frequently, and persistent reversal of words or letters.
