Learn to use your eyes better at Vision Sense Optometry with vision therapy!

Vision Sense Optometry has a unique approach to expand, develop and rehabilitate vision: to engage the visual process to work more efficiently and effectively through vision therapy.

The goal will be to help both eyes work together, and to improve the brain functioning involving vision.

At Vision Sense Optometry we go beyond vision correction using glasses. We tap into the neuroplasticity of the brain (the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life) and we focus on building strong relationships between vision, eye coordination and the knowledge and ability of the brain to process and build neural connections.

Who can benefit from this approach?

What can you expect?

At Vision Sense Optometry Dr. Angela starts with a thorough analysis and evaluation of the visual system including assessment of how the eyes are working together under different conditions, or binocularity. She gathers information on how eyes respond when stressed, how the eyes relax, how the eyes behave in the distance and up close. She looks at depth perception and one’s sense of position in space.
