The ability to see clearly (20/20) is just one part of being able to read & learn easily.
During the early years of childhood, the brain develops more than 15 visual skills that allow normal functioning, reading & learning. When a child does not have one or more of these skills, he or she will often also have reading and/or attention difficulties.
As a specialist in vision development, Dr. Vasilakos works with children & adults to develop these essential visual skills. Vision problems, such as these, can be mistaken & misdiagnosed as an attention problem or a learning disability because they cause similar symptoms.
Dr. Laura, as her patients call her, dedicates herself to services for children including developmental vision evaluations, non-surgical treatment for eye turns (strabismus), minimal to no patching for lazy eye (amblyopia) and myopia (nearsightedness) control treatment options.
