Vision Therapy
at The Brown Center

As behavioral optometrists we feel that, in many instances, we are able to make a major impact in the course of a child’s development. It is our passion for influencing the relationship between learning and vision that fuels our commitment to all of our pediatric patients. Our Vision Therapy sessions, including Orthoptics (Vision Rehabilitation) and visual perceptual development are scheduled weekly through most of the school year.
