Vision Therapy Testimonials
My daughter was reading below grade level and failing at school. I tried anything to help, but she continued to struggle. A guidance counselor told me about Vision Therapy and I decided to try it. Boy, what a difference! Around week 12 my daughter started making A’s on her reading tests. She is well on her way to being the great student I knew was locked inside her.Mrs. Proctor
Before Josh started Vision Therapy, we had hit a “wall” in reading education. We sought Dr. Horning’s opinion. Sure enough, his diagnosis indicated Josh could benefit from VIP. The training Josh received ranged from visual “fitness” exercises to critical thinking challenges, balance and coordination drills, and more. Josh is much more comfortable and confident in his reading now, cracking open new books just for fun!Josh's Parents, Doctors of Medicine and Engineering

Frequently Asked Questions
Vision therapy is an individualized system of exercises and lenses designed to improve the development of the visual system in the areas of visual-motor and/or visual processing.
Vision therapy is for people of all ages. Anyone who can benefit from improved visual skills is a candidate for vision therapy. We have treated patients as young as one year old to patients as old as seventy five.
Vision problems affect different types of people differently and for different reasons. Some normal students develop vision related learning problems which affect their ability in the classroom. Others have conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye) or strabismus (crossed eyes). We have a nonsurgical approach to treat these conditions. We also treat those with acquired or traumatic brain injuries. These are individuals that have suffered a stroke, brain tumor, head trauma, or other condition that has affected areas of the brain that deal with visual function. We also work with individuals of the spectrum: from autism, persuasive development disorder, asperger’s, to attention deficit disorders. These individuals due to their special situation tend to have a vastly underdeveloped visual system.
Vision therapy usually consists of one hour weekly sessions lasting from fifteen to forty five weeks depending on the conditions treated and the age of the patient.
Some major medical plans do cover. It depends on the individual plan and the patient’s diagnosis.
