The Dream of Functional Vision

Are you a parent concerned with your child’s ability to focus, read, and learn? Have you experienced dizziness, double-vision, and a poorer quality of life after a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or another neurological event?

Dr. Robin Sapossnek has focused on advanced vision solutions since 1981, with the goal of developing and restoring full visual function to children and adults alike.

Visual function goes far beyond simply having 20/20 vision. Proper visual function can only occur when the eyes and brain work together as a team to focus, track, and perceive the world in motion around us. Dr. Robin Sapossnek has devoted her career to exclusively practice neuro-optometry — an advanced area of optometry focused on retraining the brain and eyes to work together as a team to accurately interpret the world without headaches, strain, blurriness, or dizziness.

CURRENTLY ENROLLING NEW PATIENTS!



Call us or request to book a functional vision assessment today. We look forward to helping you or your child achieve full visual function, which can lead to increased success, confidence and a higher quality of life.

Vision therapy is an individually-tailored regimen of eye exercises made to improve visual functions and retrain the brain to interpret visual input more accurately.

Vision therapy can treat:

    • Dyslexia
    • Amblyopia
    • Strabismus
    • Focusing problems
    • Binocular problems
    • Eye movement dysfunction
    • Visual perception dysfunction

Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation is an individualized treatment program for those with visual problems caused by physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries (i.e. concussion), and other neurological insults (stroke, etc.).

Neuro-optometry reduces double vision, improves balance, gait, visual information processing, cognitive skills, visual memory, motor skills, and more.

The Intersection of Neurology and Optometry


Neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy, a form of vision therapy that deals with vision rehabilitation following brain injury, applies the latest methods and treatments of neuro-plasticity and vision function to help patients develop or regain the essential visual skills necessary for learning and optimal daily function.

An undiagnosed vision condition, or one resulting from a traumatic brain injury, can result in the following problems:

  • Double-vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye-teaming and eye-tracking problems
  • Visual field loss
  • Extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Eye focusing problems

As part of an interdisciplinary approach, neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy is a well-established and highly-effective method used to treat the underlying vision function issues responsible for the problems listed above.

Your two eyes and brain must all work together to navigate the world. It’s this connection that makes up your functional vision. A standard eye exam, however, only checks your eyes’ physical health and ability to focus on stationary objects — it doesn’t measure critical dynamic vision skills such as eye movement and coordination. Signs that you may have a functional vision problem include:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Rereading or skipping lines of print
  • Short attention span
  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Poor coordination or balance
  • Slow completion of work
  • Previous brain trauma (concussions, strokes)
  • Loss of interest in reading
  • Frequent headaches

RightEye Functional Vision EyeQ is a 5-minute, non-invasive test performed at our offices that could diagnose a functional vision issue and set you on a path to improvement.

Call us to schedule your Functional Vision EyeQ test today.”
