Who Benefits from Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a form of physical therapy that benefits both children and adults who are experiencing vision problems. Vision issues may be related to a wide range of conditions, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), strokes, or learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

Vision therapy is more than just eye exercises. Your doctor at OCVT will develop a progressive, in-office program tailored to your needs. Our team uses prisms, filters, and other specialized tools to help you improve your visual skills. Our goal is to help you resolve visual processing or oculomotor problems that interfere with your learning, daily activities, or comfort.

OCVT NAMED AUSTIN’S BEST VISION THERAPY PRACTICE

The Optometry Center for Vision Therapy was named the best vision therapy program by The Austin Chronicle in 2015. Here’s what the Chronicle had to say: “The doctors oversee an individualized in-office program with a vision therapist who sends you home with exercises to help with lazy eye, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, and much more. Their program vastly improved the quality of life for one of our visual artists who was unknowingly suffering from eight different eye disorders. Bonus: the staff is incredibly attentive and friendly. Here’s (to) looking at you, Austin!”

OCVT A PRIVATE PRACTICE RESIDENCY SITE FOR VISION THERAPY AND REHABILITATION

For over five years, OCVT has been a Private Practice Residency site for Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation affiliated with the Rosenberg School of Optometry at the University of the Incarnate Word. OCVT doctors also serve as adjunct clinical faculty for UIW. This partnership is an endorsement of the vision therapy competencies of OCVT doctors and vision therapists.

As of 2017, there were just two private practices in Texas affiliated with a School/College of Optometry and designated as Residency Clinics. The Residency Clinics are one-year programs that prepare Doctors of Optometry to be experts and leaders in the field of Vision Therapy and Binocular Vision.
