For Optometrists

Welcome! We are Western Kentucky’s only center dedicated to Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation. We would be honored to have the opportunity to help your patients with their binocular vision conditions.

We treat the following conditions with office-based vision therapy:

  • Convergence and Divergence Insufficiency and Excess
  • Strabismus (constant or intermittent esotropia and exotropia)
  • Amblyopia
  • Accommodative disorders
  • Oculomotor disorders: Disorders of Saccades, Pursuits, and hand-eye coordination
  • Visual Perceptual Issues
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries affecting visual perception

Whether you have a confirmed diagnosis or simply want a second opinion, the first step in determining if your patient is a candidate for VT is a comprehensive binocular vision evaluation.

We ask that they have first received a comprehensive exam from you including eye health evaluation and evaluation of refractive status within the last year so that we can spend our time focusing on their binocular vision condition.

If we note a binocular vision issue during our examination, we will set up a consultation with their parent to discuss the options for treatment. We will keep you updated on their progress at the beginning and end of therapy and will return them to your care at the successful completion of Vision Therapy.

To make a referral, call our office at (270) 557-7650, schedule an appointment, and fax your exam notes to (270) 558-4742.

We sincerely appreciate each referral and value the opportunity to positively impact the life of your patients. Thank you!

For Therapists and Teachers

If you’re a therapist, teacher, or just work closely with children, it’s likely that you’ve encountered many children that could benefit from Vision Therapy.

The AOA estimates that 1 in 10 children has an uncorrected vision problem that may impact their learning!

Although you may not be able to detect these vision condition yourself, you’ve likely spotted some of the common signs and symptoms of functional vision problems, which include:

               -Skipping or re-reading lines

               -Headaches/tired eyes when doing near work

               -Easily distracted when performing near work

               -Clumsy and poor eye-hand coordination

               -Words or numbers appear to “move” or remain unaligned on page

               -Trouble copying from the board

               -Does well on verbal tests but poorly on written tests

 So what can you do to help?

1. Discuss with the parent what you’re noticing

              2. Have them take our symptom survey

              3. Refer for a Vision Therapy Evaluation

After our evaluation, we will send you a summary of our findings and recommendations. Thank you for the opportunity to help your patients or students in such a positive way. If we can be of further assistance, don’t hesitate to call us or drop by to speak further.

Want to speak with us? Call us at (270) 557-7650 and ask to speak with our vision therapist, Lauren or with Dr. Montgomery.
