Mom, I see those letters. Cheerful pretty healthy child doing a tests and enjoying her ability seeing small things again while visiting her doctor

Vision Therapy Center of Jonesboro is a specialized optometric practice devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems that interfere with reading, learning, academic, and sports performance, as well as activities of daily living.

For example, many children and adults struggle with simple tasks such as reading because they don’t realize their difficulties are related to correctable eye coordination and eye movement disorders.

Most people think of “20/20” as perfect or normal vision, even though all it means is you are able to see a certain size letter on the eye chart from a distance of 20 feet (visual acuity).
Many of the patients we help on a routine basis can see the letters on the eye chart just fine. The difficulties they have are due to problems with how their eyes move and difficulties with coordination.

We understand you might have a number of questions. For more information, please call us at 870.336.2264.

Did you know?

  • One out of four children struggles with reading and learning because of undiagnosed eye coordination and eye movement problems.

  • It is estimated that more than 60% of problem learners have undiagnosed vision problems.

  • The majority of the vision problems that interfere with reading and learning are very treatable.

  • Seeing Clearly is just one of the 17 visual skills critical to academic success.

  • Children with Individualized Education Plans (IEP) have more vision problems than non-IEP students. Many of these vision problems would not be detected by vision screenings based on the clarity of vision alone.

Vision and Our Daily Life

We use our eyes constantly throughout the day for driving, reading, walking, sports, conversations, learning, work, etc. When our eyes don’t function properly, it can impact our ability to function in life.

The signs that our vision isn’t working properly could be something as simple as a recurring headache or more significant where words appear to move on the page when you are reading.
