The Optometry Center for Vision Therapy (OCVT) has locations in Austin and San Antonio and is proud to provide office-based vision therapy to patients from across Texas. We also offer virtual vision therapy for patients/families whose circumstances preclude them from an in-person office session including those that reside in other US States or other Countries. OCVT’s virtual mode of vision therapy services is our methodology enhanced over 10 years that make possible remote vision therapy and vision therapy from home with similar efficacy as an in-office program. Our services include vision care for special needs, neuro-optometric evaluations, and individualized vision therapy for both children and adults.
We are exclusively a Vision Therapy Practice. This specialization is to ensure that our clinical expertise, competencies, and resources are fully allocated to providing patients with the best optometric vision therapy services. OCVT refers all non-vision therapy related disorders to other optometry clinics.
OCVT’s vision care and therapy center has been named Austin’s best vision therapy practice (The Austin Chronicle, 2015), and our doctors have received numerous distinctions, including the Mollie Armstrong Leadership Award (Dr. Briana Larson) and Excellence in Neuro-Ophthalmology (Dr. Erica O’Brien). However, it’s not just our credentials that set us apart: it’s our commitment to providing personalized care to every patient.

OCVT a Private Practice Residency Site for Vision Therapy
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 new Doctors of Optometry to be experts and leaders in the field of Vision Therapy and Binocular Vision.
OCVT in the Community
OCVT believes in working with community organizations that closely align with our beliefs and values. Our initiatives include the OCVT Vision and Learning Grant, which helps pay for office-based vision therapy for Austin-area students, and the InfantSEE program, which provides no-cost comprehensive eye exams to children between 6 and 12 months of age. Our team members also choose an Austin-area non-profit with whom we volunteer every quarter.
