Through vision therapy they are able to overcome the vision problems that were interfering with their ability to achieve in life.

    Dr. Amy Pruszenski, or “Dr. Amy” as our patients affectionately call her, has had a special interest in children’s vision for more than 14 years.  Most children respond well to Dr. Amy and are put at ease when they arrive in the office which has been designed to look like a living room with soft couches and a play area.  No matter how old your child is or if he or she has special needs, your child should feel comfortable and cared for.

    Often when people are not able to see 3D movies or have problems with depth perception, they can also have visual challenges related to reading and/or working on a computer.  Dr. Amy provides visual skills evaluations for children and adults who have difficulty with reading, learning, balance and/or movement. 

    The type of vision problems which are treated in our office include:

    • eye coordination
    • tracking disorders
    • “lazy eye”
    • amblyopia
    • crossed eye/eye turns
    • and vision disorders related to head/brain injuries.

    In addition, many children have been referred to our office for the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of strabismus (eye turn) and alternative treatment for amblyopia (lazy eye) that doesn’t require constant patching.

    New research has found that there is no age limit to treating eye turns and amblyopia.  More and more adults are seeking treatment because they have had a number of surgeries and still have difficulty seeing.  While these types of cases can be more difficult, help is still possible.
