Does Your Child...
  • Read below grade level?
  • Have a poor attention span?
  • Skip words or lines with reading?
  • Confuse the letters b, d, p, and q?

If your child is reading below grade level, has difficulties maintaining attention, or is not performing to their potential at school, he or she may have an undetected vision problem.

Many children struggle with undetected vision problems that hinder them from reaching their full potential.

Don’t let visual impairments prevent your child from accomplishing their goals.

What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is a customized treatment program that trains our eyes and brain to work together. It develops and enhances fundamental visual skills and abilities, such as eye tracking, eye teaming, convergence, focusing, and visual processing skills.

It is performed under optometrist supervision and is individualized to fit the specific needs of each unique patient.

Vision therapy consists of in-office appointments and at-home exercises.

Benefits of Vision Therapy

  • Non-Invasive

    Vision therapy doesn’t involve medication, surgery, or invasive procedures. Instead, it corrects eye problems naturally.

  • Great for children and adults

    Your brain is capable of forming new neural pathways throughout your entire life, so vision therapy can be effective at any age.

  • Easy to do

    Instructions are easy to follow. You or your child will learn them during in-office sessions and practice the exercises at home.

  • Customized treatment

    Following the consultation and eye exam, our eye care professionals will custom design a vision therapy program to suit your specific needs.


Should Your Child Have Vision Therapy?

Below is a list of behaviors that may indicate a vision problem:

  • Squints, tilts head or covers one eye to see better. 
  • Reports blurry or double vision
  • Has difficulty in school even if they understand the subject matter
  • Has trouble focusing or paying attention
  • Avoids activities that require visual skills, such as reading, drawing, or puzzles

It is not uncommon for academic or behavioral problems to be caused by vision difficulties. Vision therapy not only helps your child see better, but can also improve learning, behavior and self-confidence. 

Contact Woodbury Eye Clinic in Woodbury to find out whether your child's lagging visual skills may be getting in the way of their learning.

My 91-year-old grandmother had a stroke 9 months ago and lost a lot of her peripheral vision on her ... right side. Dr. Cole and his team have assisted her with slowly regaining some of that vision. The goal is not to get her driving again, but rather to just improve that peripheral vision so she can ambulate safely around her assisted living building. Not only has her vision improved, but so has her confidence and positive outlook. Having been very close to my grandmother for the majority of my life, I have watched how seniors are often treated as though there is no upside to aging. That is not the case at Woodbury EyeCare. In fact, we moved all of her eyecare from a different clinic that felt like a factory to Woodbury EyeCare because she has been treated so well. Thank you to everyone there for the outstanding work! We are very grateful!

This was my first experience at the Woodbury Eye Clinic. Dr. Nguyen made me feel comfortable from t... he get-go. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to listen to (and answer) any questions that you might have. I will definitely return to this clinic again for my yearly eye exam!

I came here after being with another provider for years. I felt the other places service and experie... nce was declining, so based on reviews I tried Woodbury Eye Clinic. I was not disappointed. The service and care by everyone was amazing. Dr. Nguyen was phenomenal!! I’ve already recommended her to two friends.

Edited from one star to five stars based on subsequent experience. I had an issue after my first pho... ne call getting them to work with my insurance, but they very quickly did. Most importantly, I have seen incredible progress after just five visits. I went from having blurry vision (after a concussion) 30% of the time to not at all. I also noticed a huge improvement in my ability to focus and work. I was fatigued before, and now I have tons of energy. Everyone has noticed that I'm feeling better. If you are having any issues, definitely try vision therapy, and definitely do the exercises as prescribed.

Why doesn't EVERY eye doctor test for all the things Dr. Cole tests for? This clinic goes above and... beyond any "normal" eye exam and really addresses the whole person by helping correct issues with not only vision, but with how the brain is visually comprehending the world around it. LOVE it!

Vision Therapy FAQs

How long does it take for vision therapy to work?

Since every patient's condition and program is unique, some may see improvement in just a couple of weeks, while others may notice progress after several months.

Can vision therapy improve my child’s academic performance?

Often, poor performance in school can mask an undiagnosed vision or eye problem. In these cases, vision therapy can transform your child’s academic performance and attitude toward school. Since 80% of learning is visual, any improvement in visual skills is likely to positively impact school performance.

Does vision therapy work?

Yes. Scientific studies confirm the effectiveness of vision therapy in treating convergence insufficiency, amblyopia, and other eye conditions. A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology and funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) showed that 75% of patients who attended weekly in-office sessions and performed daily exercises at home noticed marked improvement in convergence symptoms.
