When reading or doing near work, do you ever notice

+ Your eyes getting tired, uncomfortable, hurt, feeling sore, or having a “pulling” sensation
+ Headaches, feeling sleepy, lose concentration, lose your place or have trouble remembering what you have read
+ Having double-vision or seeing words move, jump, swim, or appear to float on the page?
+ Feel like you read slowly?
+ Notice the world blurring or coming in and out of focus?

If so, you may have an issue with your eye teaming or focusing skills and we can do a thorough evaluation.

 

“80% of learning is visual and in order for us to achieve our best potential, good vision is essential.”

“Vision therapy is like physical therapy for the visual system, including the eyes and the parts of the brain that control vision.”

“Vision therapy and sports vision training can improve vision skills needed for sports.”

Dr. Angela To received her optometric degree from the Illinois College of Optometry and completed her residency training in Pediatric Optometry and Vision Therapy at the Southern California College of Optometry. She then joined ICO as a full-time faculty member in 2011. She taught students in the following courses: Clinical Methods & Procedures, Binocular Vision Disorders, Infant/Child Development & Management and Strabismus & Amblyopia Diagnosis & Management. She also supervised students in the Primary care, Contact lens, Vision Therapy and Pediatric clinics. While at ICO, she was an examiner for the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG), a group whose research is responsible for much of our current knowledge of treatment of amblyopia and strabismus. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) and a consultant for the Accreditation Council on Optometric Education. She has presented posters and vision therapy workshops at the national AAO meetings.

Although most vision problems can very easily be corrected using eyeglasses or contact lenses, some problems require more sophisticated treatment.
Visual processing problems that interfere with a child’s ability to analyze and interpret visual information require vision therapy. It can also disrupt their potential to learn. Without addressing these issues early on, it can lead to deficiencies and a slow learning process which can affect confidence.
Adults can also benefit from vision therapy if they are experiencing eye strain, headaches and inability to perform well at work.

The average program for focusing, eye teaming and tracking problems involves one to two office visits per week lasting 45 minutes each, and about 15 minutes of supportive home therapy 3 times per week.
Many of theses problems can be eliminated in 15-20 visits. More complicated problems may require additional time. Visual processing problems are more complicated and often require longer periods of therapy.

The vision therapy is administered by well trained therapists under the supervision of an optometrist trained in vision therapy.
In addition to striving to achieve the highest possible success rates, we aim to solve the patient’s problem in as short a period of time as possible.

Vision therapy is an individualized treatment program prescribed to eliminate or improve conditions such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), trouble focusing, weak eye teaming and learning related vision disorders. Special lenses, prisms, filters and instruments are used along with specialized instruments and an advanced computer system to train for maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
