Referring Physicians: Is your patient's child encountering challenges with reading?

Have you observed signs of frustration and academic difficulties in their performance?

It’s essential to explore the possibility that vision issues might be affecting their progress in education. We recommend referring the child’s parent to Fox Vision Development for specialized vision therapy, as it can be instrumental in addressing and improving these concerns.

Why refer to us? We are a vision therapy only clinic.

To Make a Referral, please send:

  • patient name
  • phone number
  • reason for referral
  • a copy of the most recent comprehensive eye exam.

Want to refer an adult with a stroke or brain injury? Refer your patient to us first BEFORE prescribing anything.

We will prescribe for them specialized lenses, prisms, tints and occlusion to help patients with visual awareness and gait issues. These lens systems may make a very quick and radical positive change for the patient.


If you feel as though you’ve exhausted every avenue to help your patient, talk to us!

Let us help your patient maximize their visual skills and reach their full potential.

About The Visual System

The visual system is made up of the eyes and the brain — and it’s how these two parts work as a team that makes all the difference. When the brain and eye interaction functions effectively, it enables us to read words on the board, in a book, catch a ball, and maintain focus throughout the day.

What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is an advanced and effective customized treatment regimen designed to improve the function of the visual system. By using personalized techniques and exercises, you can train (or retrain) the brain and eyes to work together and teach the brain to respond more accurately and efficiently to what you see — just like muscle memory.

What Does a Developmental Optometrist Do?

Unlike many daily tasks like walking or eating, every child’s visual development is different. So much of how we see is neurological, from maintaining focus to tracking two eyes together across a sentence. A developmental optometrist starts with a behavioral vision exam, where all visual skills, both brain and eye-related, are assessed.

If needed, following the exam, a customized vision therapy program will be created. To determine the most suitable treatment for your patient, consult with one of our eye doctors who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
