Accessible Vision Care
When there are differences in development and neurology, there are likely to be a different set of visual challenges that present, both physically and functionally. Vision problems, both physical and functional, are more likely to occur in individuals with developmental and neurological differences. Unfortunately, these vision conditions are often overlooked.
We provide accessible care for all patients, and take care to consider each person’s individual needs. We have a wheelchair accessible exam lane, and in other cases our doctors are able to use hand-held instruments during the evaluation to assess glasses prescription, eye health, and functional vision. We evaluate behavior and use objective testing to assess the benefit of various treatment options, and as a result we have great success even if the patient is non-verbal. Our doctors are skilled in meeting the patient where they are at to provide the best vision care.
We welcome and enjoy seeing patients with the following conditions:
- Down syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Developmental Delay
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Other neurological or genetic disorders
A treatment plan will be developed that suits each individual’s needs and goals. The treatments that are available include glasses, color light therapy, vision therapy (using active or passive techniques), and contact lenses.
