The Vision-2-Learn Program

What is The Vision-2-Learn Program?

The Vision-2-Learn Program is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. The Vision-2-Learn Program sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain's ability to control:
  • eye alignment,
  • eye teaming,
  • eye focusing abilities,
  • eye movements, and/or
  • visual processing.
Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. During the final stages of therapy, the patient's newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.


Who Benefits from The Vision-2-Learn Program?

Children and adults with visual challenges, such as:
  • Learning-related Vision Problems
    The Vision-2-Learn Program can help those individuals who lack the necessary visual skills for effective reading, writing, and learning (i.e., eye movement and focusing skills, convergence, eye-hand activity, visual memory skills, etc.).



  • Poor Binocular Coordination
    The Vision-2-Learn Program helps individuals develop normal coordination and teamwork of the two eyes (binocular vision). When the two eyes fail to work together as an effective team, performance in many areas can suffer (reading, sports, depth perception, eye contact, etc.).



  • Strabismus and Amblyopia
    The Vision-2-Learn Progam and/or Vision Therapy offers much higher cure rates for turned eyes and/or lazy eye when compared to eye surgery, glasses, and/or patching, without therapy. The earlier the patient receives The Vision-2-Learn Program the better, however, our office has successfully treated patients well past 21 years of age.



  • Stress-induced Visual Difficulties
    21st century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before.  Children and adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and at home.  C.V.S. (Computer Vision Syndrome) is one of the fastest growing health concerns in the workplace today.  Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can induce eyestrain, headaches, and/or visual difficulties which can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or The Vision-2-Learn Program.

  • Visual Rehabilitation for Special Populations
    Vision can be compromised as a result of neurological disorders or trauma to the nervous system (such as, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, whiplash, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, etc.).



  • Sports Vision Improvement
    Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. Not much happens in sports until your eyes instruct your hands and body as to what to do! Accurate vision and athletic visual skills can be measured, developed, and enhanced through The Vision-2-Learn Program. We can measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral awareness, eye teaming, focusing, tracking, and visualization skills (to mention just a few).
The Vision-2-Learn Program and Vision Therapy can be the answer to many visual problems. Don't hesitate to contact us with your questions.
