High Quality Vision Therapy Services

Vision therapy includes a variety of strengthening and training exercises for your eyes and brain. While vision therapy is not designed to strengthen your eye muscles since they are generally very strong on their own, it is a type of therapy that involves a variety of different visual exercises. It can be done both in our office and at home and can help resolve many types of visual problems with repeated use over time. Some examples of vision therapy include but are not limited to: Eye patches; Corrective lenses, including glasses and/or contact lenses; Special prism lenses; Vision exercises both in-office and at home; vestibular devices (balance boards); and specialized computer programs.

Vision therapy has been proven to be successful by strengthening the patient's ability to receive and process visual information. Many visual problems can be solved through the use of various vision therapy techniques, even if you have previously been told that your condition is untreatable, or that you will have to learn to live with your condition.

Dr. Vaughn is an established optometric physician who specializes in effective vision therapy procedures. Whether working with a child or an adult, Dr. Vaughn offers comprehensive vision services and specialized care that is tailored to each individual patient. With extensive experience in numerous forms of vision therapy, Dr. Vaughn has the expertise and resources needed to create a unique treatment plan to increase the quality of vision through simple, non-invasive visual exercises.

During your first appointment at Arkansas Vision Development Center, we will complete a comprehensive visual evaluation to make a diagnosis. Dr. Vaughn will perform various tests in order to analyze your vision needs and the health of your eyes, and will make a customized recommendation for vision services based on your individual condition.
