☑️ Have your child track a ball with their eyes by rolling a ball back and forth ⚽️

☑️ Have story time with your child to stimulate their visualization skills which is important for learning and reading 📖

“Eye and vision problems in infants and children can cause developmental delays. It is important to detect any problems early to ensure babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn.”

It’s Not Always Dyslexia

image (6)

An astonishing 5 to 15% of people in the US struggle with dyslexia. Because of this high rate, you might not be surprised if your child or a child you work with receives this diagnosis. But sometimes that diagnosis deserves a second look.

According to our Developmental Optometrist, Dr. Judy Cao, “Having eye tracking problems and skipping words when reading is often a vision problem that mimics dyslexia. While vision therapy doesn’t solve dyslexia, it often can mitigate symptoms by treating the underlying visual problems.”

We enjoy collaborating with other health professionals such as psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, educational therapists, and many more to see how collectively as a team we can help you or your child. We are excited to meet you at our San Gabriel Optometry and have you be a part of our Vizen family.

Trying to Drive with One Eye – Tuyen’s Story

IMG 4896

6 months ago, Tuyen went to an eye clinic and received some unfortunate news. The doctor said she had crossed eyes, and it wasn’t safe for her to drive a car. She frequently had to close one eye so she could see objects from a distance, and she had noticed that her vision wasn’t always there when she needed it on the road. Her doctor recommended she enroll in vision therapy, and introduced her to Dr. Judy.

As someone who speaks English as a second language, Tuyen was a little nervous about going to vision therapy. But Dr. Judy quickly put her at ease. Tuyen says, “She is so kind, friendly, and professional. The first appointment happened perfectly. She answered all my questions, from the processing, cost, and my concerns about my case… During my therapy time, she always listens to my issues and finds solutions quickly. ”

After just two sessions, Tuyen’s eyes totally improved. All of the sudden she could clearly see objects from afar, and she no longer needed to close one eye when she was driving. Not only that, but she reports that her eyes are all around stronger than before. “The feeling helps me be more confident,” she says.

Tuyen highly recommends that anyone with similar vision problems meet with Dr. Judy, and see how vision therapy can help them overcome their struggles.

20/20 Eyesight Is Not Perfect Vision

3fdf1eb7 7b93 4d00 dbd3 eae9a5514b62 e5bfcce9 5f2a a94d 7dbd f052d17da620

You might find it surprising to know that many kids and adults quietly suffer from debilitating vision problems. These conditions often elude the best efforts of specialists in routine eye exams, simply because suffering patients can read the 20/20 line. Although frequently manageable in the short term, the conditions can prove quietly exhausting and discouraging in the long-term.

Patients may see words blur, double, or move on the page when reading if they have ineffective eye-teaming skills. They may suffer from headaches, fatigue, or strained eyes after prolonged screen time if they have a focusing disorder. Some patients read slowly, lose their place, or take hours to do 20 minutes of homework because they have poor oculomotor control and can’t move their eyes properly.

Vision therapy addresses these visual dysfunctions, and can dramatically improve a person’s ability to read, learn and play sports effectively. It can help those who have wandering, crossed, or lazy eyes to non-surgically align their eyes and improve function and depth perception. Vision therapy also aids those who have suffered a stroke or traumatic brain injury that may have harmfully impacted their vision.

Vizen Optometric Center is dedicated to aiding those experiencing these binocular vision problems. Although we provide traditional optometry services, patients are referred back to their primary optometrist for glasses prescriptions and continued eye care during and after therapy. If any of the patients you serve are struggling with any of these issues, Vizen Optometric Center is now taking referrals and would be delighted to help!

“It’s a perfect place to do vision therapy. I have problems with cross eyes. I am so happy with the result. Now I can see clearly when driving and reading.” -T.H. 💜
