Main Content

We are extremely pleased to offer a unique vision therapy program that helps children overcome visually-related learning problems. We have worked with thousands of patients in Western Wisconsin and the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is an individualized set of activities and procedures designed to improve visual skills and reading performance. Based on the results from the comprehensive vision exam and the visual processing evaluation, the doctor will decide if vision therapy is appropriate. The doctor may recommend anywhere from 4-40 sessions of vision therapy depending on the type and severity of difficulties detected.

What is the typical experience?

Our vision therapy is one-on-one and is likely to involve 1 or 2 sessions per week of individualized office-based therapy. The vision therapist will also prescribe activities to be worked on at home in between therapy sessions. At the conclusion of the vision therapy program, the patient is re-evaluated to determine how much progress has been made. For most patients, we expect an average of a 2-year gain in the processing areas targeted during vision therapy.
