Brain injuries from a fall, motor vehicle accident, concussion, sports-related injury, brain tumor, stroke and many more can often cause a lot of visual disturbances. Some may experience light sensitivity, blurred vision, loss of visual field (side vision), headaches, challenges with reading and/or eye movements.
Through Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation (vision therapy) at our optometry clinic, we look forward to improving your visual skills and relieve your visual symptoms. We want you to “Enjoy Life Again.”
Dr. Cao is also excited to share she got reappointed as the Neuro-Optometrist at the Healthsouth Tustin Rehabilitation Hospital. She looks forward to helping many patients improve their functions and activities of daily living again at Vizen and in the hospital setting.

Here are some helpful tips when wearing contact lenses. We also provided advice on inserting and removing your contact lenses.
If you’re wearing contact lenses and experience any eye pain, blurry vision, discharge, light sensitivity or any visual symptoms, make sure to schedule an appointment with an eye doctor and discontinue wearing the contact lenses.
At 2 to 3 years of age, your child should be able to:
✔️Visually inspect objects without needing to touch
✔️Smiles when sees favorite objects and people
✔️Watches own hand while scribbling
✔️Can now begin coloring on paper
✔️Visually explores and steers own walking and climbing
✔️Watches and imitates other children
✔️Reads pictures in books
Stay tuned for posts of more expected visual developments for infants and children at different ages
Here is what our wonderful patient has to say:
“𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐫…𝐈 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐞𝐲𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧…𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐫𝐲 𝐕𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐲. 𝐃𝐫. 𝐂𝐚𝐨 𝐢𝐬 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐭, 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠. 𝐀𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬, 𝐈 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐞𝐲𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧. 𝐈 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐥𝐲 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐕𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐧!”
𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐲 may be a factor in causing tired eyes for many patients. Convergence Insufficiency is when a patient does not have enough ability to cross their eyes when reading or on the computer leading to eye fatigue, headaches, difficulty concentrating, and many more!
Tips to help your child getting use to their glasses:
✔️Day 1: Wear for 1 hr
✔️Day 2: Wear for 2 hrs
✔️Day 3: Wear for 3 hrs
✔️And so on…
Gradual increase in wear time can help your child get use to having something on their face. Once they realize everything looks clearer…they will likely want to have the glasses on all the time and many parents tell us they have a hard time making their kids take them off! 🙈

“This would not have been as easy to do had it not been for the vision therapy! Dr. Cao discerned his vision deficits…and taught him that he could transform his perception of the world. We are forever grateful to Dr. Cao”
This photo made our day seeing our patient’s impressive eye-hand-body coordination! Special thanks to mom for sharing🏌🏻👏🏻
Is your child clumsy, avoids sports or have difficulty catching a ball? This might be due to a visual problem or maybe not!
Contact us to schedule an evaluation with our Developmental Optometrist to rule out if any of your concerns about your child may be due to a underlying vision condition. We love to see how we can help.
There are many pros and cons, but after doing some research, our developmental optometrist decided that any hope to protect her family and patients is definitely a PRO!
Looking forward to ending this pandemic together! 💪🏻
