(6)

This means we provide a number of optometry services with an emphasis in helping children that have learning related vision problems. These types of difficulties can contribute to AD/HD, dyslexia and other types of learning difficulties. Vision Therapy can often be the key to school success. Vision Therapy is also very useful in cases with lazy ey (amblyopia) and crossed eyes (strabismus). Many pa

tients have been wonderfully surprised with the results. This is also true with vision problems from stroke and head injuries such as double vision, dizziness and slow processing speed. Our practice also provides optometry care for medical eye problems such as allergy, cataract, dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, etc. We are especially pleased to be the only local provider for high definition (HD) lenses called iZon. These provide vision that is unbelievable. In our frame area we carry a number of lines including Tag Heuer, Dior, Gucci, Tura, Calvin Klein, Marchon Airlock and many others. Finally, another area of special interest is Corneal Molding (also known as Orthokeratology). This process is an alternative to surgery. It utilizes specialized contact lenses. They are worn at night, the eyes are "molded" and removed in the morning. Vision is clear all day without lenses - it is truly miraculous!

If you suffer from red, itchy eyes, you may be interested in this article about a prototype of self-moisturizing contact lenses. They could be a game-changer in the world of dry eyes!

Did you know that kids with functional vision problems can produce a similar set of symptoms to those found in ADHD? Those with undetected vision problems often get misdiagnosed as having ADHD and take unnecessary medication. If your child has trouble focusing at school, fidgets or squirms in their seat, it may be due to an underlying vision problem. Contact us for a functional eye exam and to learn how vision therapy can help.
