All to often, people will avoid seeing an optometrist for an eye exam because their eyes seem to be working “just fine”.

iStock_000005841314XSmallBy the time an individual first notices that something might be wrong, most eye health problems have already reached a serious stage.  Therefore, any further delay can cause additional damage to the eyes.

Many parents will rely solely upon a school eye exam that consists merely of a simple 20/20 test to determine their child’s eye health.  While better than nothing, these school eye tests measure only one aspect of the vision system.  A child may suffer from a vision related problem but pass a 20/20 exam without a sign of a problem.  This can often lead to the child experiencing learning difficulties and other serious troubles.

"the best gift you can give your child"

Vision Therapy is "the best gift you can give your child," said a parent of a recent VT graduate.

This "gift" is essentially a time-tested and proven therapy that can improve and correct specific problems of the visual system. Through an individually based, doctor prescribed program, vision therapy can reduce and even remove roadblocks to learning and achievement. If left untreated, vision related barriers often lead to stress, frustration, and low self-esteem.
