The Center for Vision Development

Welcome to The Center for Vision Development

Welcome to The Center for Vision Development. Here at “CVD” (as we like to call it), we see our patients as more than just a set of eyeballs and look at how vision affects the person as a whole. It’s not just about glasses or “20/20”. Our approach goes far beyond assessing eyesight. We strive to insure our patients have all the necessary visual skills to be successful in school, in sports, and in life….wherever it may take them.

While we take a comprehensive approach to the vision care services we provide, which include vision therapy, neuro-optometric rehabilitation, diagnosis and treatment of learning-related vision disorders, strabismus and amblyopia (“lazy eye”) evaluations, pediatric eyecare, and syntonics phototherapy, we do it in a relaxed and comfortable setting…no white coats around here!

It’s simple. You won’t find a more dedicated team to help you achieve your goals. Here, we are family. Our mission is to take vision “off the chart” because “20/20” is just not enough and we have a lot of fun doing it! So again, WELCOME!

We Are Aimed At Being Different

Having good vision isn’t just about the eyes. Here at CVD, our approach to vision development is comprehensive. Not only do we address visual skills like tracking, focusing, eye teaming, and visual perception but we also include the vestibular system, primitive reflexes, motor skills, balancing the nervous system, and nutrition. Everything is connected. If you’re only addressing the “visual” part of vision, you may be missing out. All of our sensory and motor systems must learn to support each other. Our programs are constantly evolving and our methods are tried and true.

We Love What We Do

How do we provide the best vision therapy in Austin? Simply put, it’s our belief in “MORE”. Doing more, giving more, trying more, caring more. And for the last 10 years, this one-word mantra has served us and our patients well. Vision is more than “20/20”. People are more than a set of eyeballs. We are not your ordinary optometry practice. More is what defines us. Drives us. Differentiates us.
