Welcome to the Visual Learning Centers of America

There are many visual skills critical for reading and learning. Often, a vision problem is misdiagnosed as an attention problem or a learning disability due to similarity of symptoms. Anyone who is struggling with reading, has poor reading comprehension, or just isn't performing to their full potential, should consider scheduling a developmental vision evaluation or attending one of our free seminars.

Binocular Vision Disorders - Correctable at Any Age

When your eyes have difficulty working together to form a single image, your vision can be clear at times but also blurred or even double other times. Vision therapy helps train your eyes to work together correctly and has a high success rate with binocular vision disorders such as:

  • Amblyopia or Lazy Eye
  • Convergence Insufficiency
    (near vision, eye teaming disorder)
  • Eye Fatigue
  • Tracking Problems
  • Diplopia (double vision)
  • Lack of Stereopsis
    (two-eyed depth perception)
  • Strabismus
    (cross-eyed, wandering eye, eye turns, etc.)

Vision & Learning

Most children have no idea how they are supposed to see. Therefore it is important that you know the signs that a vision problem is interfering with your child’s ability to read and learn.

There are physical clues that point to possible vision problems, but surprisingly, many of the symptoms that would indicate a person is having vision problems seem entirely unrelated to vision.

Brain Injury and Concussions

A head injury can result in vision problems, and it doesn’t matter how young or old you are. Whether you have fallen off a bike, had a car accident or a stroke, vision problems can range from being very subtle to severe. The more severe vision problems are obvious, the person complains of double vision, or words moving on the page. The problem is the more subtle vision problems...

Sports Vision Correction and/or Improvement

Our visual skills play a vital role in our ability to play sports. Many of our patients find that their sports performance improves, even though they came to us for help with their difficulty with reading. The same types of vision disorders which can make reading and learning difficult can often interfere with sports performance.
