  • About the Doctor:Dr. Huang has been on a personal mission since graduating from NOVA Southeastern University College of Optometry in Florida in 2005. When he learned how certain types of vision problems were impacting people’s lives and saw the amazing improvement that was possible through Optometric Vision Therapy, there was no turning back. He has made this specialty service a part of his family vision care office since opening in Windsor, Ontario in 2006. He has pursued a tremendous amount of post-graduate training and is a Board-Certified Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, which means he provides specialized testing and treatment for vision disorders that interfere with reading, learning and other activities required for daily life. Due to the increasing need for this specialty service, Dr. Huang opened a separate office that focuses on these services. In addition to providing family vision care at EyeCare First, the Vision Therapy Clinic is dedicated to helping children and adults of all ages to develop or rehabilitate the visual skills required for reading, learning, work, sports and life. Dr. Huang shares his passion with his patients including children who struggle with reading, those who have eye turns (strabismus) or lazy eye (amblyopia) and those who struggle with visual problems resulting from head injuries such as concussions or stroke: “I love seeing the faces of our patients as they discover how to use their eyes correctly and go from struggling to realizing they can now achieve to their peak potential.” “I also really enjoy hearing our patients joy as they discover how to use their eyes correctly or when they see 3D for the first time.” “Helping concussion patients who struggle as a result of vision problems due to their injuries, means a lot to me. It is very rewarding to see them regain control of their lives.”

    Our one-on-one approach to vision therapy makes Dr. Hansel Huang and the Eye Care First staff the providers of choice in the Windsor area.

    Dr. Hansel Huang is an established optometrist who specializes in effective vision therapy procedures. Whether working with a child or an adult, Dr. Huang offers comprehensive vision services and specialized care that is tailored to each individual patient. With extensive experience in numerous forms of vision therapy, Dr. Huang has the expertise and resources needed to create a unique treatment plan to increase the quality of vision through simple, non-invasive visual exercises.

    Vision therapy includes a variety of strengthening and training exercises for your eyes and brain. While vision therapy is not designed to strengthen your eye muscles since they are generally very strong on their own, it is a type of physical therapy that involves a variety of different visual exercises. It can be done both in our office and at home, and can help resolve many types of visual problems with repeated use over time. 

    Some examples of vision therapy include but are not limited to:

    • Alternatives to eye patching
    • Corrective lenses, including glasses and/or contact lenses
    • Special prism lenses
    • Vision exercises both in-office and at home
    • Vestibular devices (balance boards)
    • and Specialized computer programs

    Vision therapy has been proven to be successful by strengthening the patient’s ability to receive and process visual information. Many visual problems can be solved through the use of various vision therapy techniques, even if you have previously been told that your condition is untreatable, or that you will have to learn to live with your condition.

    If you have been previously diagnosed with visual problems like amblyopia or crossed eyes, or are currently experiencing visual difficulties like double or reduced vision, contact Dr. Huang today. During your first appointment at  Eye Care First, we will complete a comprehensive visual evaluation to make a diagnosis. Dr. Huang will perform various tests in order to analyze your vision needs and the health of your eyes, and will make a customized recommendation for vision services based on your individual condition.

    At Eye Care First, we are dedicated to providing high-quality eye care services in a comfortable environment. Call us at (519) 948-9797 or schedule an appointment today online.
