Our Services

VISUAL EFFICIENCY EXAM

A complete eye examination is given that includes an assessment of visual acuity, refractive error (hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism), eye muscle balance at far and near, smooth tracking, tracking eye movements in reading, near focusing and fusion skills, depth perception, and color vision testing. For children with learning difficulties, the exam often includes screening tests… [MORE]

VISION TRAINING SERVICES

We design, administer, and monitor vision training programs for visual efficiency dysfunctions such as disorders of eye coordination (teaming), fusion skills, near focusing, and visual tracking.  These programs usually take only two to three months to complete if the patient does the assigned exercises on a daily basis for about 20 to 30 minutes at… [MORE]

PERCEPTUAL SKILLS ASSESSMENT

A recent eye examination (within a year) should precede the PSA. The PSA and consultation usually takes 2&1/2 hours to complete with two office visits. This assessment is designed for a child having learning difficulties and evaluates fundamental perceptual processing skills important for early acquisition of reading, writing, and arithmetic skills. It usually includes an… [MORE]

READING DYNAMICS PROGRAM

Our Reading Dynamics Clinic offers a systematic approach to remediating dyslexic readers.  We incorporate state-of-the-art optometric techniques and educational strategies to resolve visual and integrative processing deficits that may contribute to dyslexia and other reading/learning disabilities.  Our focus is on phonemic awareness, the transient vs. sustained visual pathways in the brain, decoding, sight word recognition… [MORE]

COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN

We perform a complete examination of the structures and function of the eyes.  This often requires special drops to be used to relax the normal constriction of the pupil (which would prevent proper examination of the internal structures of the eyes. Occasionally stronger drops will be used (especially with young children) that not only relax… [MORE]

TODDLER EYE EXAMS

The American Optometric Association highly recommends a comprehensive eye exam, not just a pediatrician screening, within the first year of life and again at age 3 years. This insures that serious medical and developmental conditions of the eyes that affect nearly 5% or more of children can be detected early when they are best treated… [MORE]

FREE INFANT EYE SCREENINGS

Our practice participates in the InfantSEE program. We provide complimentary screening examinations for infants and toddlers under the age of 2 without any prior eye problems or concerns… [MORE]

PEDIATRIC AND SPECIALTY CONTACT LENSES

Occasionally adults and children will require a prescription that is stronger for reading than for distance vision.  In adults this is usually due to the normal aging changes of the eye (the internal auto-focusing system weakens as the eyes age, usually to a point where it’s noticeable in the early 40’s). In children, bifocals are… [MORE]

MYOPIA CONTROL

We use specially-designed contacts with children and teens to limit the growth rate of the eye and thus help prevent further progression of myopia. There are two primary lens types that have been proven effective in this area, bifocal soft contacts and specially designed ridged lenses that are worn overnight… [MORE]

SPORTS VISION EVALUATION

There are few activities that are as visually demanding as sports.  Performing at a high level requires the basic visual skills to be in good order, such as visual acuity, tracking, near focusing, and convergence.  Often the first step in improving sports performance includes being fit with the proper eyewear, including contact lenses. We offer… [MORE]

STRABISMUS EXAMINATION

This specialty service includes an examination, diagnosis, and consultation of patients, all ages, regarding strabismus (an eye turn), amblyopia (a lazy eye), nystagmus (jiggling eyes), or other major ocular motor anomaly. The examination usually takes 1&1/2 hours to complete and a written report can follow with diagnosis, prognosis, and recommendations for management… [MORE]
