Our Austin Eye Care Professionals Know There’s More to Healthy Vision Than “20/20”Want to avail quality Austin eye care? Austin Vision Therapy Center is the solution. We strive to provide you with the best vision care in Austin, but first, we must conduct a thorough assessment. Our comprehensive evaluation process allows us to design the most effective treatment plan specifically for you.
Most vision exams check your eyesight and eye health but not your functional vision. Vision is comprised of more than 20 visual skills. As such, your vision as a whole can be evaluated properly only when these skills are tested. Even if you have 20/20 eyesight, you could still have a vision problem.
At Austin Vision Therapy Center, we offer comprehensive examinations to thoroughly evaluate your vision including:
- Eye Teaming
- Eye Focusing
- Eye Movements/Tracking
- Letter Reversals
- Visual Processing/Memory
- Depth Perception
- Eye-Hand Coordination
- Peripheral Vision
25% of children with learning challenges actually have a vision problem.
Children should have three vision exams prior to entering school at ages six months, three years, and five years. Before starting school, your child should undergo a full developmental vision evaluation to insure they have the necessary visual skills for learning. This can save years of struggling.
Frequently, vision problems go undetected or misdiagnosed, especially if the child has passed a pediatrician or school vision screening. Due to the comprehensive nature of our evaluation process, we are able to diagnose problems properly and formulate an individualized treatment plan that addresses the root of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms.
Regular eye examinations are necessary for optimal vision even if you don’t wear glasses.
If you are a working individual, functional vision exams become even more important in preventing problems induced by environmental stress. Our visual systems were not built for the excessive computer use and close work demanded by today’s professions.
Let us help you achieve and maintain optimal visual health with our personalized approach to quality Austin eye care!
Post-Trauma Vision Evaluations
Vision is often compromised after a traumatic or neurological event such as a concussion, stroke, or brain tumor.
It is important to have a thorough vision examination after any type of head trauma or neurological insult to preserve the integrity of the visual system.
