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)
(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.
Our patient's reviews and successes!
"My son has been receiving vision therapy for approximately 4 weeks and we are seeing improvements in his reading/decoding abilities. The office staff are so welcoming and accommodating. Dr. Kotlicky was very thorough and explained results in great detail".
"Finally I understand what's happening with my child when she says she's struggling with reading. Friendly receptionist, comfortable visit. The doctor made my daughter feel very comfortable throughout."
"Kind, patient, caring man, who really listened to my daughter and me. At age 5, we did our initial visit and exam, since as her Mom, I had convergence issues. The results implied we should come back at age 8 to re-examine since some "issues" came up. Well we returned at age 8, and her exam revealed no need for vision therapy! That proves an honest doctor to me. He could have easily steered the ship another direction if he weren't honest."
"After years of trying other band aid approaches to clarifying my son's learning issues, we have found the root of the problem."
“Has fewer headaches, less double vision and wants to read!” 8 year old
“8 weeks of vision therapy has done more than all 3 years of tutoring. Since Harry started therapy he has had more confidence in himself. After 12 visits, he started reading out loud to us, which he hated to do before. According to Harry, the words have stopped moving around and they don’t go upside down anymore. He writes neater and is enthusiastic about participating in class.” 10 year old
“His reading is much more fluid – he can read longer before losing his place or becoming fatigued. He is also beginning to improve in his comprehension of math problems – even doing some independently, which never happened prior to VT.” 8 year old
