Your child’s vision impacts everything.

I got glasses when I was three, so I watch my children like a hawk, looking for signs that they may need glasses. Every morning I put on my glasses and am reminded just how much my world would be affected if I didn’t have corrected vision, and I don’t want them to struggle if they have eyes like me.

Eye Doctors for Kids

You probably tell your kids that eating carrots will help their eye sight, but offering our kids vegetables isn’t the only thing we should do when it comes to our kids’ vision. Children also need to see an eye doctor.

These improvements often empower our patients with a greater sense of efficiency, productivity and confidence.

During treatment, our patients experience a highly personalized approach with each session one-on-one (therapist-to-patient), conducted under doctor supervision. Our doctors and board-certified vision therapists apply state-of-the-art technology and procedures, making treatment enjoyable and productive. Our advanced approach incorporates coordinated movement, balance, auditory processing and cognitive abilities. This methodology allows our patients to develop their visual abilities and improve daily living in the classroom, the workplace, and in sports.

“Vision Therapy has been the best gift ever given to Madelyn and our family. Now Madelyn has more focus when she is working on something and can sit still for longer periods of time. Madelyn is now on track to be a successful First Grader, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for her. We are so blessed to find this place and would highly recommend Wow Vision Therapy to everyone.”
