Vision Therapy in Brentwood, CA

Is your child falling behind in school? Is your child having trouble reading? Your child may benefit from *Vision Therapy*.

We traditionally think of “good vision” as being able to see 20/20 on an eye chart however good vision actually encompasses so much more. In order to copy from the board, read a textbook, and complete assignments we depend on our eyes to work together. When they don’t, difficulties arise with tracking words, coordinating movement, and focusing images.

Often times our children are not able to describe eye strain and fatigue as adults do. Children may complain of “words moving on a page” or they may have poor reading comprehension. Kids with visual learning disorders often have a short attention span and appear to know the material in school but then perform poorly on written tests. These children can be misdiagnosed as having ADD/ADHD.

If your child is diagnosed with a visual learning disorder, vision therapy should be considered. Vision therapy is not just “eye exercises” or strengthening muscles. Vision therapy is a comprehensive approach to retraining our eyes to work together in coordination. Studies have shown that a combination of in office based vision therapy and home based vision therapy can promote improved visual learning. Office based vision therapy is typically weekly sessions in our practice with a trained vision therapist. We work on specific activities custom designed for each individual patient.

To see if your child could benefit from vision therapy take the Symptom Survey and Call (925) 232-0426 to make an appointment. Our office is prepared to give them the necessary skills to improve vision and learning.
