Eatontown Visual Processing
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
We are a specialty optometric practice dedicated to diagnosing and treating vision problems that interfere with reading, learning and activities of daily living such as sports, climbing stairs, pouring drinks, etc. Empowered Learning Transformation Centers use vision therapy to teach patients to use their vision across a range of different circumstances. We focus on children, particularly those with learning difficulties, using visual training as a way to improve the use of his or her eyes. We also provide specialty care to help athletes develop the advanced levels of visual ability that is needed for sports.
Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or patching, and are best resolved through a program of Vision Therapy.

Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain's ability to control:
eye tracking and eye teaming,
eye focusing abilities,
eye movements, and/or
Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. During the final stages of therapy, the patients newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.
Who Benefits from Vision Therapy?
Children and adults with visual challenges, such as:
Learning-related Vision Problems
Vision Therapy can help those individuals who lack the necessary visual skills for effective reading, writing, and learning (i.e., eye movement and focusing skills, convergence, eye-hand activity, visual memory skills, etc.).
