Our patients come to us from all over Nebraska and even from Iowa because vision therapy works. Our patients come to us because they are experiencing signs and symptoms of what could be a visual problem or disorder and in some cases have a diagnosed medical condition. The most important recipe for success is commitment and hard work. Changing the pathways of the brain takes time. A common phrase we use in the therapy room is “perfect practice makes perfect.”
Learning Related Vision Disorders can manifest in problems such as skipping lines of print, poor reading comprehension, poor spelling and poor retention and more. Patients might have double vision, persistent headaches, poor self image due to a lack of visual tools needed to success, or misdiagnosed ADHD. Many people come to us because they or someone in their family are experiencing some of these symptoms.
Clinically our patients come to us with these conditions:
- Convergence Insufficiency – In which the eyes cannot sustain focus on a near target.
- Amblyopia – When a brain doesn’t develop 20/20 vision due to and uncorrected issue in one or both eyes.
- Strabismus – When the eyes don’t point in the same direction causing double vision or vision supression.
- Esotropia – A type of strabismus which on eye points toward the nose.
- Exotropia – A type of strbismus which one eye points outwards.
