Is your child struggling to read at their grade level? Are they not reaching their full academic potential? Do you notice your child experiencing attention difficulties or a reluctance to complete homework?

What Is Vision Therapy?
20/20 vision is but ONE of over 17 important visual skills required to function efficiently to perform well in school or sports.
Children with reduced vision skills may be working harder than their peers, yet be unable to achieve the desired results. Their poor vision skills may also cause them to struggle to concentrate throughout the day.
Vision therapy is an evidence-based program to effectively strengthen the specific vision skills impacting your child. It has been clinically proven to increase reading levels, enhance comprehension, maintain longer attention spans, and even improve sports performance.

At Richmond Hill Optometric Clinic Vision Therapy Center we use a holistic approach to vision care. In addition to the usual eye exam, we test the entire visual system (functional vision exam) to check that it has the developmental maturity, strength, and stamina to function optimally throughout the visual tasks performed on a daily basis.
Once we identify any vulnerable areas within the visual system that could interfere with reading and learning, we develop an effective vision therapy regimen made of individually-tailored eye exercises made to improve visual functions and retrain the brain to interpret visual input more accurately.
Contact Richmond Hill Optometric Clinic Vision Therapy Center in Richmond Hill today for a functional eye exam, or visit us and share your concerns regarding your child’s vision, and we’ll be sure to find the best way to treat their visual problems.
