Vision is much more than 20/20
It is a combination of 24 different skills that work together with the brain so you understand what you’re looking at and can succeed in reading, learning, sports and in life.
Life’s basic activities require your eyes, your eye muscles, and your brain working together. This is called Functional Vision.
Today’s standard eye exams only check your eyes’ physical health and your ability to focus on stationary objects—it doesn’t measure critical dynamic vision skills or how your eyes and brain work together
Performance Vision & Learning Specializes in Vision Therapy to Improve How the Eyes and Brain Work Together for Reading, Learning, Attention, Work, Driving, Comfort or Sports.
Optometric Vision Therapy Corrects a Wide Range of Problems. Some of These Include:
Do you or your child have trouble reading, interpreting ideas or distinguishing similar letters and numbers? We focus on strengthening visual skills, such as eye tracking, as a form of visual dyslexia treatment.
A highly-customized combination of visual exercises, specialized lenses, and targeted visual stimuli to retrain the patient's brain to process visual input properly following brain injury or other neurological conditions.
Also called “lazy eye,” this vision development problem stems from the eye failing to achieve normal visual acuity due to eye teaming problems.
Ambliopia responds to treatment at any age, but it’s easier to improve when Vision Therapy treatment is accomplished as early as possible.
Why a Child’s Vision Problems Look Like Learning Problems
Vision happens in the brain and involves more than 24 different skills, each of which is critical to your child’s development—especially academic achievement.
Vision-related learning problems share the same symptoms as many learning disability diagnoses:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Skipping lines of print
- Letter Reversals
- Difficulty recognizing words
- Short Attention Span
- Poor reading comprehension
- Poor handwriting
- Slow completion of homework
- Loss of interest in reading
Even children with perfect eyesight can experience visual disorders that can look like:
- Behavioral problems
- Lack of effort
- Not being able to get through homework
- Learning difficulties
Why Your Child’s Eyes Need Your Voice
Children rarely question their vision—they assume everyone processes information the same way.
Unlike speech problems which can be easily heard, it used to be impossible to unlock vision problems.
Thankfully, today, this is no longer the case.
Dr. Spinozzi has provided the missing piece to the puzzle after suffering a traumatic brain injury six years ago. Medical providers have offered very little relief for my ongoing symptoms which is primarily vertigo. The recommendation was often medications which offered similar side effects. Dr. Spinozzi and his advanced technology has provided insight into my visual system deficits from an evaluation as well as treatment perspective. It has been so nice to discover there is a reason I'm experiencing the symptoms I am and with therapy they will improve. I highly encourage anyone with a neurologic condition to seek treatment for vision therapy. The percentage of people with visual involvement is 80-90%. There is a good chance it will change your life as it has mine.Angie L. Google Review
