Austin Vision Therapy Center Stresses the Importance of Proactive Pediatric Eye Care

September 20, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - An Austin, Texas center for vision development stresses the importance of the early detection of vision problems that can impact young learners. Since 2004, this has been a key area of focus for the Optometrists and vision specialists at Austin Vision Therapy Center. They are vision experts that use a comprehensive approach to help children with their vision development.

Dr. Denise Smith, Founder and Clinical Director of Austin Vision Therapy Center, says this about how eye problems can impact a child’s ability to learn, “Vision can have a negative effect on a child’s learning abilities if not properly developed. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 school-aged children have an undiagnosed vision problem. At Austin Vision Therapy Center, we use advanced techniques that help detect and treat visual conditions that impact learning. Finding this critical link between vision and learning can help any child avoid years of struggling to keep up with their peers.”

Dr. Smith also stated that they like to take an ‘out of the box’ approach when it comes to treating pediatric eye concerns. They seek to help transform the lives of young people who are frustrated and seeking answers after the normal approach of treating vision symptoms did not improve their ability to learn. Their practice uses developmental, behavioral, and neuro-optometry vision treatments to help their young patients overcome vision-related learning difficulties.

Their pediatric eye care techniques are geared toward helping children overcome several different conditions that can severely impact a child’s ability to learn. This includes such things as Strabismus, more commonly known as ‘crossed eyes’. Those children with this condition have eyes that cannot continuously look at an object simultaneously due to their misalignment. Austin Vision Therapy Center’s treatment for Strabismus helps a patient rehabilitate their eyes so they can eventually overcome the learning problems which are attributed to this condition.

This pediatric vision center has also experienced great success in treating those children affected by amblyopia. Most people would recognize this by its more common name ‘lazy eye’. When this happens the vision in one eye is reduced because that eye and the brain are not working properly together. Even though the affected eye itself looks normal in this case, it is not being used properly by the brain. This causes the brain to increase its dependence on the eye it is functioning normally with.

The center’s advanced pediatric vision techniques have also greatly benefitted those that are suffering from attention deficit disorders and are recovering from traumatic brain injuries.

Trish Morley Marchand had this to say on a Facebook review about the pediatric eye care that her daughter received at Austin Vision Therapy Center; “My 10-year-old daughter Madison has been going to The Center for Vision Therapy for one year now. We’ve seen incredible improvements during that time - in her tracking, eye focus and ability to determine if a shape which has been flipped or rotated is the same as the original. These improvements have been great, but the most amazing result is that my daughter has finally become a reader and now loves to read.”

The company is now offering its pediatric vision care services in the Waco, Texas area too. A Google Map pinpointing the location of their new Waco office can be seen here at towards the bottom of the page. The hours at this new office are Tuesday from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, Wednesday from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm, and Thursday from 9:00 am - 7:00 pm. This office is closed on Mondays and Fridays.

Austin Vision Therapy Center’s website also describes in much more detail all of the different vision treatments that they offer. The website even offers a unique look at each of the vision specialists that work for them and their areas of vision therapy expertise. There is also a special form on the website that an interested party can fill out if they would like to schedule a free consultation with one of the doctors to address their child’s visual concerns.

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia’s ban on Chinese telecoms giant Huawei’s involvement in its future 5G networks and its crackdown on foreign covert interference are testing Beijing’s efforts to project its power overseas.

CANBERRA, Australia — Fiji's prime minister used a state visit on Monday to urge Australia to take more ambitious actions to slash greenhouse gas emissions, a month after differences on climate change policy created anger and frustration at a forum of Pacific island leaders. Voreqe Bainimarama, who was Fijian Military Forces commander when he seized power in a 2006 coup, said in a speech at the Australian Defense College that he hoped Fiji and Australia could "find more common ground" on climate change.

New Zealand gun buyback exposes emotions, possibly hustlers

Oct 23, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Some New Zealand gun owners are upset they're being compelled to hand over their assault weapons for money. Others believe a government-imposed ban on certain semi-automatics following a March shooting massacre is the best way to combat gun violence. And The Associated Press has found that at least one man may have tried to swindle hundreds of thousands of dollars from the system set up to compensate gun owners. New Zealand is six weeks into an ambitious program to buy tens of thousands of guns from owners across the country. After a lone gunman killed 51...

New Zealand parliament speaker soothes baby as debate rages

Oct 23, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The man who presides over New Zealand's parliament has been called a baby whisperer. He was in action again this week, gently rocking, bottle feeding and burping a colleague's infant as a lawmaker ranted about gas prices. Speaker Trevor Mallard held baby Tutanekai for about 15 minutes during a fiery general debate Wednesday after spotting lawmaker Tamati Coffey with his 6-week-old son. Mallard said Friday he's been trying to make parliament a more baby-friendly place by adding baby chairs, family rooms and soon, a slide. He's also increased the flexibility around family leave for lawmakers. New...

Australian court upholds sex abuse verdict of Cardinal Pell

Oct 23, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — An Australian appeals court Wednesday upheld convictions against Cardinal George Pell, the most senior Catholic to be found guilty of sexually abusing children, in a decision cheered by scores of abuse survivors and victims' advocates demonstrating outside the court. A unanimous jury in December found Pope Francis' former finance minister guilty of molesting two 13-year-old choirboys in Melbourne's St. Patrick's Cathedral more than two decades ago. The Victoria state Court of Appeal rejected his appeal in a 2-1 ruling, with the court's chief justice saying the majority found Pell's accuser to be a compelling "witness of truth."...
