Welcome to 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.”
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.
Problems with how your eyes and brain work together can cause dizziness, vertigo, balance problems and more. This mismatch is common in vestibular neuritis, migraines and Meniere’s.
Are you still having symptoms? Vision conditions can cause dizziness, headaches, migraines, difficulty with screens and more. 90% of those treated saw significant improvements.
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 which can similarly prevent the normal development of the visual system.
