Conditions that Can Benefit from Vision Therapy

  • Amblyopia (Lazy Eye):
    Amblyopia occurs when one eye doesn't develop proper visual abilities, leading to reduced vision. Vision therapy can encourage the weaker eye to work more efficiently and strengthen its visual function.
  • Strabismus (Crossed Eyes):
    Strabismus affects eye alignment, and vision therapy can help train the eyes to work together correctly, helping restore binocular vision.
  • Convergence Insufficiency:
    Vision therapy exercises can improve convergence abilities for individuals who struggle with maintaining eye alignment for close-up tasks like reading.
  • Eye-Tracking Issues:
    Vision therapy can address difficulties in the smooth tracking of objects, making tasks like reading or following a moving target more manageable.
  • Visual Processing Disorders:
    Vision therapy can aid in improving the brain's processing of visual information, enhancing overall visual perception.
  • Post-Concussion Vision Problems:
    After a concussion, vision issues may arise, including double vision and tracking difficulties. Vision therapy can help regain visual function.
  • Visual Discomfort:
    Frequent headaches, eye strain, or discomfort during visual tasks can be alleviated through vision therapy.
  • Post-Stroke Vision Difficulties:
    Vision therapy can improve visual function after a stroke by addressing issues like blurred vision and depth perception.

Very friendly, very efficient, thorough eye exam. Doctor took the time to talk and explain. Everyb... ody works together seamlessly - it is obviously a very well-run office, and it is also obvious that everybody loves working there and being a part of the team. Wife had diabetes, glaucoma, and other conditions. She went here for several years and loved them and the care she got. They took good care of her, and she - and I - couldn't say enough nice things about them.

I had the BEST experience at Advanced Eye Care with Dr. Karalekas! I was in need of an immediate ap... pointment, and found this practice on the VSP website under their premier office listings. The staff was extremely professional and helpful, and booked a same-day appointment for my emergency. Dr. Karalekas was kind, empathetic, and had a wonderful manner with me as a patient. He addressed all my concerns and was able to refer me to a specialist (also the same day!) for a second opinion on my issue. The staff at Advanced Eye Care Associates was wonderful and I'll be switching my routine wellness visits to this office. I was so pleased and happy to have found this practice on a quick search, and am looking forward to receiving my regular care here. Thank you again from a very satisfied NEW patient!!!

I had my first visit with Advanced Eye Care yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. The tech explain... ed each test in detail and what they do even though this wasn't my first eye exam. Doctor Harney took the time to listen to me and explained the test results. He was friendly and professional and I'll be using this practice for my eye exams from now on!

I've been to quite a few eye Dr over the years and none have compared to Advanced Eye Care. Dr Kara... likas is the best! He genuinely cares about his patients and work. And the staff is always pleasant and very helpful. I highly recommend.
