Advanced Vision Therapy Center

About Our Treatment Options

Advanced Vision Therapy Center is the Northwest's premier clinic for Vision Therapy, Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation and Sports Vision Training. Located in beautiful Boise Idaho, Advanced Vision Therapy Center serves patients from the immediate area as well as those who travel to Idaho for this specialized care.

We offer a number of treatment options tailored to the specific visual needs of each patient. Our evidence and research-based approach to treatment is goal and outcome oriented. Every treatment session at Advanced Vision Therapy Center is provided in a one-on-one environment with our licensed and specially-trained therapists. Additionally, every treatment program is overseen by our Residency-Trained Neuro-Optometrist to ensure optimum results.
 


Our elevated level of care is accomplished by implementing a comprehensive approach to your treatment. Throughout the assessment process, our doctors evaluate the components of your visual system function as they relate to your current symptoms and visual struggles. Refractive error (prescription), ocular health changes and visual functions (binocular vision, visual perception, visual processing, etc) are all considered in the context of your clinical case. A treatment plan that can encompass multiple treatment options is then put in place. This may include passive treatment (such as specialty glasses with prism), active treatment (such as patching, surgery or vision therapy), or a combination of treatment options.

These multiple approaches are used in harmony to provide improved prognosis and efficiency of your treatment. Advanced Vision Therapy Center communicates with the members of your care team managing the non-visual components to your case. This ensures a collaborative, more successful approach to your care.

Advanced Vision Therapy Center provides several types of active intervention and treatment.

Testimonials

Before vision therapy, Sarah struggled with reading, experienced frequent headaches, and overall had difficulties focusing during school.  Despite tutoring and summer literacy programs, she continued to struggle with reading; she skipped lines and never volunteered to read aloud.  Following vision therapy, Sarah no longer loses her place while reading and even volunteers to read aloud. "Until Dr. Johnson tested for Sarah's vision issues we all were unaware they existed.  This experience help…

In the few weeks Erin has been attending vision therapy, we are already beginning to notice changes. Homework doesn't take as long as it did two months ago, there are no more tears when she has a lot to write, she is becoming more and more independent as time goes on. She still needs a lot of guidance, but seems to "catch on" to what is expected of her a lot faster. The greatest improvement, however, has been in her report card. Last year, Erin's third grade teacher wanted to fail her because s…

"Bella loves reading now, whereas before she hated it. I have already recommended that two of my friends bring their children here because they are struggling with similar issues. Bella had so much fun with therapy and I have enjoyed seeing her improve in her reading and the rest of school."  
- J.G.
"Before I started vision therapy, I hated doing homework or reading.  I would give my mom a hard time and homework would take forever.  Now, I love school, schoolwork, homework, and reading.  My glasses helped out a lot.  I have seen a difference in my handwriting, reading and just seeing things in a new way.  Vision therapy has helped me open up and accept changes, it has helped me be more aware of what is going on.  Vision therapy kept me out of the Special Ed. class at my old school and help…

"Before vision therapy Aidan hated school and homework.  He would jump from line to line while reading, he rubbed his eyes a lot while doing homework, and he turned words completely around when reading (saw became was).  After vision therapy with Advanced Vision Therapy Center, his reading scores have improved drastically, he is less disruptive in class, and his overall view of school is much better.  He is looking forward to starting second grade and reads like a champ!"  
- F.L.
"About two years ago I went to the eye doctor and he discovered I had a problem with my vision.  We tried glasses, but it made it worse.  My doctor recommended vision therapy.  From the start of vision therapy I loved the sessions.  I got to play games while fixing my eyes.  I went to vision therapy for a few months and my eyes made huge improvements, my regular eye doctor was amazed.  It is remarkable how exercises and games can improve somone's eyesight dramatically.  If anyone has eye proble…

"Thank you so much for introducing me to vision therapy.  This was brand new to me and it surprised me with it's effectiveness.  I can definitely tell a difference in my eyes while reading.  This has particularly improved at times when my eyes are tired, when I used to get most uncomfortable.  As a student, I can tell a difference in my study habits, and vision therapy has also helped me enjoy reading more than I used to. I would recommend vision therapy to anyone with a similar problem with…

My son's eyes were consistently red after school and while attempting to sit down and do homework, he complained that he was seeing two of everything. He just fought me when it came time to read. This started in kindergarten and followed into first grade, so I had patience with his struggles, basing it on the fact that maybe he still needs some time to learn how to read. It was not until the school started to reach out to me that he was not at reading level and also acting out in class that I d…

About TreatmentAbout the Assessment
 

VISION THERAPY

Vision Therapy at Advanced Vision Therapy Center is an evidence and research-based approach to treating conditions affected by deficits in eye tracking, eye teaming and eye focusing. Conditions such as convergence insufficiency, accommodative dysfunction, amblyopia (lazy eye), intermittent strabismus (eye turn) and oculomotor dysfunction (poor tracking) respond extremely well to vision therapy. Vision therapy addresses sensory deficits within the visual system through neurological change. Vision therapy creates a more coordinated visual system at a subconscious level to create lifelong improvements without the need for repeated therapy or a maintenance program.

NEURO-OPTOMETRIC VISION REHABILITATION

Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation at Advanced Vision Therapy Center allows for active rehabilitation of the visual system following an acquired brain injury (concussion, traumatic brain injury, stroke, etc). The visual system is often fragile and dysfunctional following an acquired brain injury. Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation re-establishes a stable visual system that provides clear, comfortable, single, consistent vision. Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation should be implemented early in any rehabilitation program for patients suffering from visual conditions or symptoms following an acquired brain injury.

VISUAL PROCESSING THERAPY

Visual Processing Therapy at Advanced Vision Therapy Center treats visual perceptual deficits, prolonged or delayed visual processing speed and poor visual working memory. Visual Processing Therapy incorporates millisecond-specific biofeedback and vision training activities to improve how quickly, accurately and efficiently visual information is processed by the brain. Visual Processing Therapy allows the individual to effectively organize incoming visual information from an ever-changing visual environment. It also allows the individual to keep pace with the demands of school, work, or time-sensitive tasks (such as driving).
