Vision Therapy

My approach is integrating the whole-body (eye, brain, body and mind) providing vision therapy for a number of conditions including:

  • Binocular vision difficulties; if our body (large muscles not coordinated) then difficult for our small muscles (eyes and fine motor skills of handwriting) to be coordinated
  • Strabismus/amblyopia is not just our eyeballs but compensations made throughout the whole body
  • Myopia (shortsightedness) is when you have difficulty seeing at far
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness) is when you have difficulty seeing at near
  • Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
  • Reading/ learning difficulties
  • Dyslexia
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Cortical visual impairment (CVI)
  • Visual stress associated with near device/screen use
  • Dizziness (vertigo is a specific type of dizziness experienced as an illusion of movement of one’s self or the environment. Some experience dizziness in the form of motion sickness, a nauseating feeling brought on by the motion of riding in an airplane, a roller coaster, or a boat)
  • Visual snow
  • Traumatic and acquired brain injury

In addition to using

  • Lenses and prisms to direct light onto the peripheral retina to integrate vision with vestibular and proprioceptive senses
  • Binasal occlusion in treatment of patients with traumatic brain injury as well as patients with diplopia or visual overstimulation
  • Tints to help with migraine headaches, reading and light sensitivity
