Help Your Child Reach Their Potential With Vision Therapy </span>
<p>At Harrel Vision Therapy Center we use a holistic approach to vision care. In addition to the usual eye exam, we also test the entire visual system (functional vision exam) to check that it has the developmental maturity, strength, and stamina to function optimally throughout the visual tasks performed on a daily basis.</p>
<p>Once we identify any vulnerable areas within the visual system that could interfere with reading and learning, we develop an effective vision therapy regimen made of individually-tailored eye exercises made to improve visual functions and retrain the brain to interpret visual input more accurately.</p>
<p>Contact Harrel Vision Therapy Center today for a functional eye exam, or visit us with your concerns regarding your child’s vision, and we’ll be sure to find the best way to treat his or her visual problems.</p>

Vision Therapy May Be What Your Child Always Needed | FAQ </span>
<strong>Improve your child’s confidence levels with vision therapy!</strong>
<span style=”color: #000000;”>Vision therapy is a non-surgical treatment program that is typically compared to physical therapy, but for the eyes and brain. Vision therapy uses exercises, lenses, specific instruments, and occlusions to enhance visual function.</span>
<span style=”color: #000000;”>All vision therapy programs are customized and can result in significant lasting improvements within a relatively short period of time. To learn more, contact us today and discover how we can help your child improve their performances both in school and on the sports field.</span>
<span class=”ecp-accordion-trigger-label”>Isn’t 20/20 Vision Enough?</span>
<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>If a child has been told that they have ‘20/20 sight’, it means that they can clearly see the letters on the chart 20 feet away. The child may excel in reading the letters on the vision charts on the wall, yet lack the necessary visual skills needed for reading, writing, and learning —&nbsp; all of which can adversely impact their performance in school and in sports.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>
<p>Keep in mind that school screenings, and even some regular eye exams, generally evaluate sight (visual acuity) <em>only </em>and most do not assess the essential vision skills required for sports, extensive computer use, reading and learning. Furthermore, it is common to not need glasses and still have poor visual skills. Therefore, a functional vision exam will determine whether a child has poor visual skills, and if so, a tailor-made vision therapy program will be put in place to help the patient succeed and reach their potential.&nbsp;</p>
<span class=”ecp-accordion-trigger-label”>What Are Some Major Benefits of Vision Therapy?</span>
<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Developing visual skills can lead children to become better learners and students. In fact, vision therapy can be a key component in preparing a child for higher education, as increased success can lead to a rise in self esteem and greater confidence in one’s abilities. This newfound confidence will inevitably trickle into other areas, positively impacting the youngster’s quality of life and achievements.&nbsp;</span>
<span class=”ecp-accordion-trigger-label”> How Long Does It Take to See Results? </span>
<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Results depend on the child’s active participation and compliance with the program. Over time, the more one trains their brain, the easier and more automated the exercises will become. Gains can be experienced from as little as a few weeks to six months. </span>
