What is Vision Therapy?
Vision Therapy is an individualized neuro-optometric rehabilitation program designed to improve visual function. The goal is to enhance eye tracking, focusing and teaming abilities as well as eye-hand coordination and visual processing speed. Vision therapy provide patients the foundation to read, learn and play sports at their full potential.
Our doctors and vision therapists love working with infants and kids. We have many child-friendly equipment to get a reliable and thorough assessment. Also, we are very patient, compassionate and adaptable to your needs. We want to ensure that our young patients feel happy, calm and comfortable.
Adult Vision Therapy
Vision Therapy is not only for children; adults have just as much of a need. Vision Therapy is effective for adults, especially if they are motivated to improve their visual abilities. There is no age limit because of neuroplasticity. We can help adults with lazy eye (amblyopia), eye turn (strabismus), traumatic brain injury ( concussion, whiplash) and special needs.
Dr. Debbie Luk is Calgary’s only board-certified developmental optometrist and is the official eye doctor for the Calgary Flames. She specializes in eye-tracking disorders, lazy eye (amblyopia) and eye turn (strabismus, convergence insufficiency). Further, Dr. Luk offers visual skills and visual perceptual evaluations for patients with reading or learning disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. If any visual deficits were found, we provide neuro-optometric vision therapy and rehabilitation, prisms, tints and/or glasses prescription. For patients who are interested in enhancing their visual skills, we provide Sports Vision Training using the latest technology.
We are passionate about helping our patients reach their visual potential. This is why we invest in the latest diagnostic and vision training tools. Our clinic is equipped with OCT and digital retinal imagining, visual field/peripheral vision testing, Nike Strobe Vapor glasses, FITLIGHT, Sanet Vision Integration, Vergence Training System, Amblyopia INET and Peceptual Training System. We also have a variety of colour blindness tests, and colour tinted lenses for light sensitivity and improving contrast.
Skype Vision Therapy
For patients who live far from Calgary, we may be able to conduct Vision Therapy through video conferencing. We have patients who live in various parts of Alberta such as Edmonton, Red Deer, Lethbridge as well as other regions of Canada. Using Skype, we are able to increase accessibility and successfully help patients with lazy eye, eye tracking problems, convergence insufficiency and other visual impediments to reading.
