Philosophy

Early identification of vision problems in neurological impairments and in learning disabilities can accelerate a patient’s progress in rehabilitation.

Every patient is unique, which is why we collaborate with the referring doctors (ophthalmologists, physiatrists, neurologists, neuro-psych practitioners) and therapists (Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists) to develop specific treatment plans for each patient.
