By utilizing vision therapy, our doctors can often correct visual deficits that may be contributing to reading or other academic disorders. Other common vision disorders such as amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eye) can often be successfully treated with vision therapy. Vision therapy can be rehabilitative in the case of head trauma, concussion, stroke, or brain injury. In these cases patients can be trained in the redevelopment of lost vision skills.
Previously the medical eye care goal was to have healthy eyes that had the capability of 20/20 visual acuity. Today there is a heightened awareness of the increased visual demands of computers and other forms of technology. These demands require efficient and comfortable function of focusing, binocular (eye teaming), and fixation skills. Our office staff enjoys working with people of all ages and enhancing their visual skills.
We receive referrals from other eye doctors, occupational and physical therapists, psychologists and work closely with other educational professionals such as reading teachers. Our doctors feel a commitment to the local community and often serve as guest lecturers at local hospitals, rehabilitation centers, developmental centers and school districts.
Our son has benefitted greatly from the vision therapy program provided by Savedoff and Ciccone. His eye tracking and convergence have improved tremendously.”
