25% of ALL children have a vision problem significant enough to affect their performance in school

Not only does Vision Therapy help individuals with learning related visual delays and eye turns, but also helps those that have suffered traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

We know that 80% of learning comes through vision, but did you know that vision drives everything that we do: from moving our body in space to driving and everyday life skills??

According to the CDC, US Emergency Rooms evaluate over 130,000 youth sports-related TBI incidents (including concussions) per year! Vision therapy can help these patients recover visual functions and enhance their overall rehabilitation.

How Vision Affects Learning

How the brain and eyes work together – vision – has a great impact on the learning process for both children and adults. Imagine sitting in a classroom taking notes and fighting a focusing problem that won’t allow you to change your focus from near to far and back again quickly enough to keep up with the instructor.

Watch Actual Training!

These videos show a TBI patient who started vision therapy in June. In the first video he is doing an activity where he must find the ball in space and hit the ball with his hand.

In the second video, from December, he was finishing his vision therapy. He is now able to not only find the ball in space, but estimate when to move his hands to catch the ball! We are so excited for him to be finishing vision therapy!!
