Unlocking the Power of Visual Skills

Concentration and focus are essential skills in our daily lives, whether at work, school, or during daily tasks and activities. However, for some individuals, challenges in concentration and focus can hinder their ability to perform at their best. These visual problems can also cause poor visual stamina, making it harder to complete assignments.

The Visual Connection: How Does it Affect Concentration?

Visual skills have a strong connection with concentration and focus. How effectively we process visual information can greatly impact our ability to concentrate on tasks and maintain focus over time. Visual skills that play a crucial role in concentration and focus include:

  • Eye Tracking:
    The ability to smoothly follow a moving object or read words across a page.
  • Eye Teaming:
    The coordination of both eyes to work together, providing a single, clear image.
  • Eye Focusing:
    The capacity to adjust the eyes' focus between near and far objects.
  • Visual Processing:
    The brain's ability to efficiently interpret and make sense of visual information.

When any of these visual skills are compromised, it can lead to difficulties in maintaining concentration and focus, particularly during tasks that require sustained attention.


Signs of Visual Challenges Affecting Concentration and Focus

If you or someone you know experiences the following signs, it may indicate that visual challenges are impacting concentration and focus:

  • Frequent loss of place while reading.
  • Difficulty tracking objects or following lines of text.
  • Eyestrain or discomfort during visually demanding tasks.
  • Shortened attention span.
  • Disinterest in activities that require visual skills.
  • Frequent headaches during or after reading or close-up work.

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 don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t been referred to Dr. Cole. It has been life changing a... fter my TBI. I can’t thank him and his team enough.

Great staff and Dr Cole was very friendly. They were able to get me in on a last minute emergency ap... pointment because I had something in my eye. Felt instant relief and was relieved they were able to accommodate me and get me in right away!

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.

Great staff. Excellent eye care in fulfilling my prescription. They had great knowledge of their pro... duct and gave excellent customer service.

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!
