When The Center for Visual Management Can Help

Visual processing involves more than just 20/20 acuity. At The Center for Visual Management, we examine our patients' total visual organization and the way one orients themselves within the environment. Special testing procedures examine the ability of two perceptual styles; focal and ambient vision and further determine how we focus our eyes and concurrently our attention. If vision dysfunction goes undetected and untreated, a range of difficulties can develop as one grows older. These difficulties can range from developmental delays to serious learning disabilities, emotional problems, and spectrum disorders.

  • Level I(Mild)-Problems with reading (decoding and comprehension), difficulty with physical activities and sports, certain types of social problems.
  • Level II(Moderate)-Problems with visual organization and depth perception. These may manifest themselves as difficulty with night vision and night driving, motion sickness and vertigo, light sensitivity, headaches, and postural/head shifts.
  • Level III(Serious)-Weakness in visual organization and visual orientation. In some cases, this could contribute to autistic behaviors and can even contribute to emotional conditions, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression.
