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.

The doctors and medical professionals at OCVT are always educating themselves and improving to increase our vision therapy success rate. Led by Dr. Larson, the only FNORA professional in Texas, OCVT achieves vision therapy effectiveness in many of our patients. Named Austin’s Best Vision Therapy Practice in 2015 by the Austin Chronicle, we create vision therapy success stories every day for our patients and their families.
After a stroke my eyes felt weird and OCVT helped to diagnose me after 10+ other neuros & opthamologists had NO CLUE. Vision is alot more than just seeing clearly and I recommend everyone have an eye exam here because it is very detailed and unlike any other.
I thought my son would grow weary of the visits, but he enjoyed them right through the end. I'd recommend this to anyone who has a child struggling with reading and writing or difficulty playing ball sports. It's a financial and time commitment but worth every bit of it.
OCVT has been a blessing not only to our son, Memo, but to our family as well. Memo was struggling in school and we couldn't quite figure out what the problem was. The teachers were always hinting that it was ADHD and we should see a doctor.
The staff there worked with me on exercises that helped train my eyes to work together, and at my last eye exam, I was told that I didn’t need to have more prism put in, and I could still use my glasses from last year. I would recommend OCVT to anyone who needs therapy to correct a vision problem.
Our son, Brayden, has had amazing results with 44 sessions of vision therapy. We are so proud of him. The staff at the westlake office are amazing! A special shout out to Ms. Ashley Alavi! She was our son's therapist and is truly amazing!! Her attitude is truly refreshing. Thank you all!
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 2020, 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.
