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.

How Vision Therapy Can Help

Vision therapy offers a targeted and practical approach to improving concentration and focus by enhancing visual skills. These personalized programs combine in-office sessions with at-home exercises designed to address specific visual challenges.

Through vision therapy, people can experience the following benefits:

  • Improved eye tracking and teaming abilities.
  • Enhanced eye focusing, reducing eye strain.
  • Better visual processing and comprehension.
  • Extended attention span for tasks requiring sustained focus.
  • Increased comfort during reading and other visually demanding activities.

Dr Cole and his staff are friendly caring and Dr Cole goes the extra distance to make sure my vision... is the best possible with my contacts.

Always a great experience visit the Clinic

I can't rave about Dr. Cole and the Woodbury EyeCare Clinic enough! Friendly, efficient staff and D... r. Cole's clinic, I'm convinced, is the ONLY clinic for neuro-optometry you want to visit. Absolutely sensational exam and initial diagnosis. I can't wait to meet again to review test results in depth and see the plan he puts together to treat my difficult condition. Alas, Google only offers 5 stars. I would have chosen 10 stars if it were an option. Truly amazing eye care!

Woodbury eye care clinic takes very good care of their patients. Thank you for all you do for your p... atients.

I really like doctor Nguyen. I was not impressed with the follow up for eye therapy, which told me ... "here's some codes, call your own insurance." I mean, you have billing people who presumably get paid. I'm not going to spend my time doing it. The whole point is, you say I need the service, you all ultimately bill the service, you make money from me and my insurance. You can do the other leg work. That said, back to it.. The office is pleasant. I like everyone who has helped me otherwise, so if you take out paragraph 2, I would say this is one of the best eye clinics I've been to. Dr. Nguyen is very personable, helpful, and kind. I referred my husband here shortly after. I liked the gal who helped me pick out my glasses. So, even though the situation in paragraph two irritated the crap out of me, I'll still do a 5 star.

Dr. Nguyen and all the staff at Woodbury Eye Clinic make getting new glasses a breeze! The exam was ... extensive and the doctor carefully answered my many questions. She is also very friendly. My glasses were ready in less than a week. Pick up of the finished glasses was quick and easy even without an appointment. Thanks all!

Dr. Cole was very friendly and explained things very clearly. He also answered all my questions and ... didnt make me feel rushed. All the staff was very nice and friendly as well.

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.
- Oct. 05, 2023
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!

Very thorough and professional

From the time I walked in, everyone was friendly and professional, I felt from the beginning of the ... appointment that I was in good hands and that if anyone can help me through my concussion, I'm in the best place.
