Vision Therapy

Dr. McBryar is a leading expert in innovative vision therapy. Primarily aimed at children, vision therapy helps correct vision problems such as learning-related vision issues and vision problems linked to developmental disabilities, which more standard treatments such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, and eye surgery are not effective for. Vision therapy is a highly individualized treatment which trains the patient to improve the brain-eye connection and lead to a better quality of life both in and outside of the classroom.

Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation

Similar to vision therapy, neuro optometric rehabilitation can help treat problems that more standard vision correction options cannot help with. Neuro optometry is specifically geared toward people suffering with vision issues caused by a traumatic incident such as a concussion, a car accident, or a stroke. These problems can lead to partial or complete vision loss, or be more subtle, like double vision, balance issues, or motion sickness. As with our vision therapy treatment, your treatment plan will be personalized to best suit your needs.

Low Vision

As we age, the likelihood of vision deterioration due to eye diseases increases. These typically age-related vision issues include diseases like macular degeneration and glaucoma. Your ophthalmologist will provide treatment to prevent your condition from deteriorating further, while a low vision optometrist will help you maximize your remaining vision.While standard vision correction, such as glasses or contact lenses, can help in the earlier stages, there comes a point where they are no longer effective. However, Dr. McBryar’s low vision treatment services provide several options that can help. Through the use of special vision aids, we train patients to use their remaining eyesight so they can function independently and enjoy a high quality of life.

  • Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

    Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

  • Vision Therapy is well worth the expense, time and effort. Our son had a hard time focusing handwriting neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time it previously took his abilities to focus and improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

  • Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

    He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

    It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

    Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!

  • Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

    Thank you!
