Opto-mization NeuroVisual Performance in Victoria and Nanaimo, British Columbia

My mission is to make sure that no kids or adults are left struggling with these treatable visual conditions. We need to overhaul how we think about vision, and change the testing process.” – Dr McCrodan

We help people see with their brains. Learning disabilities, attention problems, dizziness, migraines and ongoing post concussion symptoms may be caused by problems with how the eyes and the brain work together.

The Opto-mization™ Training process has supported patients of all ages and abilities across North America. Dr. Cameron McCrodan speaks and educates other professionals on neurovisual performance. His popular TEDx Talk has shed light on the benefits of neurovisual training to audiences around the world.

Have a child who struggles with reading? Eye tracking problems are a leading cause of learning problems. Reading, writing, spelling, and attention all depend on more than just seeing clearly.

I started vision therapy due to having a few leaning disabilities that I wanted addressed and once I went got my vision checked it was found that I had binocular disfunction. That made a lot of sense since the disabilities that I had where reading, writing and mathematical comprehension. After getting the assessment done it was time to start my therapy. I worked with Lauren as my main therapist and she was amazing and personable making the therapy something that I would look forward to every week, I also worked with a few other therapists along the way who all brought a unique perspective. When you first walk in you are greeted with amazing friendly staff. The doctors are very attentive, extremely knowledgeable, are able to answer your questions and bring about a better understanding of the therapy and how the eyes and brain work in conjunction and what glasses prescription you will need to get the most out of your vision. They keep an eye on your progress chart and make adjustments when and where needed to make sure that you are getting the most out of your therapy. The therapists that are working on your plan and chart are extremely Knowledgeable, attentive, focused, and adapt based on what you are able to do. I found that it's very much what you put in is what you get out kind of situation and if you follow exactly what they say (not under cutting the homework or over doing the homework) then you are going to be able make very large improvements in your therapy. I was able to finish early but it was a lot of hard work to get there and now I'm very happy with the results. So thank you everyone at Opto-mization. A special thanks to both Dr. Cam McCrodan and Dr. Scott Irvine for all their help, knowledge, and patience.

Never Heard of Vision Therapy
or Neuro Optometry?

Specialized Eye Care For You


Vision Therapy helps patients improve their foundation for reading, learning and playing sports. It’s a series of custom and individualized activities and exercises which function as a form of neuro-optometric rehabilitation.

The goal is to enhance eye tracking, focusing and eye teaming abilities as well as eye-hand coordination and visual processing speed.

The program is not only for children. Vision Therapy is effective for adults, especially if they are motivated to improve their visual abilities.

More On Vision Therapy


Sports Vision Training isn’t about correcting your vision. You wear glasses or contacts for that. Vision Therapy is about training (or retraining) the brain to achieve maximum efficiency in the way it processes and responds to visual inputs.

Sports Vision is about training people with excellent vision to process and respond to what they see faster and better. Using a personalized and customized series of techniques and exercises, the brain learns to respond more accurately and efficiently. It’s just like muscle memory. Once you know and refine exactly how to react, you can do it again and again, and get better every time.

More On Sports Vision Training


Traumatic brain injury such as a concussion or stroke, or diseases such as MS, cerebral palsy, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), can result in potentially devastating visual problems.

There are also a number of inherited brain conditions that can similarly prevent the normal development of the visual system.

Fortunately, we've helped numerous patients rehabilitate and recover from their visual problems, ultimately reducing or eliminating headaches, dizziness, poor balance, and other symptoms.
