Vision is more than seeing 20/20. How your eyes function in your environment includes many more visual skills and processing. If you have eyestrain/headaches with near work or visual activity, intermittent blurred vision, double vision, difficulty reading, an eye turn or lazy eye, have a history of concussion or brain injury, a deeper evaluation of your visual skills is recommended.
Functional visual skills allow you to comfortably and efficiently gather information from your surroundings. These skills include eye tracking, eye teaming, and eye focusing (making an image clear). Deficiencies in these skills can cause difficulty with reading (slow, skipping lines/words), copying, ball catching, and intermittent blur. A thorough evaluation will show how to best treat your condition. Treatment can include glasses prescription, prism, and vision therapy.
Strabismus is an eye turn outward, inward or vertical and can cause symptoms such as poor depth perception, blurry vision, or double vision. Amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye,” is where, even with proper glasses prescription, you are unable to see clearly due to poor visual development. This is most commonly caused from a difference in glasses prescription between eyes and/or strabismus. A thorough evaluation will show how to best treat your condition. Treatment can include glasses prescription, prism, and vision therapy.
Brain injuries very often cause vision problems including blurriness, double vision, difficulty with reading, difficulty in crowded environments (such as a grocery store), depth perception problems, dizziness/vertigo, feeling off-balance, loss of side vision and visual processing difficulty. Brain injury severity can range from mild traumatic brain injury (such as concussion) to stroke and cerebral palsy. We can help you manage these symptoms and rehabilitate deficient visual skills for your recovery.
A vision therapy program uses exercises to train the eyes and brain to develop or rehabilitate necessary visual skills. This involves in-office one-on-one training with home practice. After a successful vision therapy program, there are often improvements in visual comfort, reading, depth perception, peripheral awareness, and balance/coordination.

"I'm thrilled with World Optic! Their customer service SHINES. Their online service is very user friendly and even though I managed to screw that up they were very patient and helped me straighten everything out. Their prices are great, they offer free shipping and with Yelp's coupon I saved even more. I would recommend them any day. I know I will be using them over and over again." Elsa C.
"If you ever need a testimonial for your repairing of glasses, feel free to use my email address, name, or phone number. After receiving my repaired glasses, it is really not fair to call them repaired. The truth is, my glasses were totally reconditioned. In the interim between the time I was sending you an updated Rx for new lenses, to replace the scratched one in my glasses. I found that the VA now will replace damaged glasses… They arrived 2 days after your refurbished pair. There is NO comparison between the new pair, and your refurbished pair. After trying both pair of glasses,.." Pete D
"Whether you walk in off the street or shoot them a call, World Optic offers an incredible service with a "clear vision" of customer satisfaction. I have just recently ordered my 5th pair of glasses with them and each time I keep coming back because they stand behind their products and craftsmanship… There are not enough good things I can say about this crew, but just know that if you ever have a question, need an opinion or just want to make a hassle/pressure FREE order, then this is your one stop shop! They do it ALL at World Optic and they do it well." Your loyal customer,
