“Kayla struggled with reading all throughout her elementary school years. The TAKS test was always her “worst fear”. Her eyes got tired, jumped around the page, strayed off and just made reading passages something she wanted to avoid all together. After vision therapy, Kayla has excelled at reading, spelling and has a new air of confidence! We will be forever GRATEFUL for what you have done for Kayla. It’s people like YOU who change Lives!!”

The Optometry Center for Vision Therapy initiated The OCVT Vision and Learning Grant in 2009. The purpose of the grant is to help improve the reading and learning of deserving Austin and San Antonio area students who have learning-related vision problems contributing to their reading and learning difficulties. To date, a total of over forty (40) recipients from different schools have benefited from the grant.
OCVT’s grant is in the form of services provided. OCVT will provide comprehensive eye exams, evaluations and vision therapy treatments for the selected students at no cost.
Vision Therapy is an individualized program of prescribed activities using specialized instruments and computer technology to treat patients with visual system deficiencies. It is often the treatment for diagnosed visual disorders that contribute to reading and learning difficulties.
OCVT’s Vision Therapy program consists of Doctor prescribed one-on-one in clinic weekly sessions with a highly trained vision therapist and assigned home visual exercises. Regular progress evaluations monitor progress and modify treatment as needed. Patients typically achieve their vision therapy goals in 6 to 10 months.
