You Don't See With Your Eyes

You see with your brain.

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

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.

“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.”

Reading and Learning

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.

Our Patients Say It Like It Is!

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.

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.

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.

Dizziness and Balance: How Vision Plays a Vital Role

While vision may not seem to be the most important factor in maintaining balance, the brain relies on visual input to keep your world appearing both stable and leveled. Visual problems related to balance issues or dizziness can be effectively treated with neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy.
