Exceptional Vision Miami Vision Therapy Center

COVID-19 Update – We’re Open!

With great pleasure and within the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), American Optometric Association (AOA), and the Florida Board of Health, Exceptional Vision has resumed providing routine Optometric services, including updating prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses.

After collectively enduring unprecedented life circumstances these past weeks, we appreciate your patience and understanding now more than ever.

Our Team will adhere to strict ‘health care’ level safety protocol. Numerous protective measures have been initiated. Most notably:

  • Our doctors & staff will wear face masks, gloves, and full-face shields as clinically indicated.
  • All surfaces, including glasses, that are touched in any manner, will be sanitized before and after use
  • Common areas have been modified to reduce/eliminate social contact.
  • Appointments have been spaced further apart to ensure minimal undue interaction.
  • Curbside pickup will still be offered.
  • Contact Lens orders can still be made over the phone & shipped to your home.

Patient Expectations:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients with CDC-approved risk assessment guidelines. Individuals of increased risk will be triaged accordingly.
  • Approved appointments allow access to our facility for the patient only. Minors are granted one accompanying guardian (no siblings).
  • Face mask will be required for entrance to the facility.

Our protective protocol is designed for the safety of our patients and our Team. We will adjust on-site protective measures as deemed appropriate.

We will be contacting patients who are currently on the schedule to confirm dates and times. We will do our best to reschedule canceled appointments and find available times in the upcoming weeks.

Most importantly, we are here for you. We have truly missed our day-to-day relationships with our patients and look forward to seeing you soon.

Read About Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy helps patients improve their foundation for reading, learning and playing sports. It’s a series of custom and individualized activities and exercises which function as a form of neuro-optometric rehabilitation. The goal is to enhance eye tracking, focusing and eye teaming abilities as well as eye-hand coordination and visual processing speed.

The program is not only for children. Vision Therapy is effective for adults, especially if they are motivated to improve their visual abilities. In short, this effective, non-surgical treatment is available to anyone in the Palmetto Bay and Miami areas of Florida who stands to benefit from it. 

A learning-related visual problem directly affects how we learn, read, or sustain close work. Because difficulties with reading and learning affect the child's ability to focus, vision related learning problems are often misdiagnosed as ADHD or other behavioural issues.

It is common for children who have Learning Disabilities to have vision problems that contribute to these learning problems. Vision Therapy does not correct learning disabilities, but correcting the underlying vision problems through Vision Therapy often solves many of the obstacles that make learning more difficult than it need be. We are here to ensure that the children of the Palmetto Bay and Miami areas of Florida get the help they need in treating ocular factors in their learning disabilities. 

What Is Dyslexia?

There is no consensus on the *official *definition of dyslexia. Often referred to as a “learning disorder”, dyslexia is typified with difficulty reading or interpreting symbols in the correct order or syntax despite the fact that the person with dyslexia has, at least, average intelligence."Dys" means "not". "Lex" means "read". Dyslexia, therefore, literally means not being able to read.

A substantial number of individuals with dyslexia actually have other visual problems that make the problem greater. *All too often, undiagnosed vision problem is the reason the individual was diagnosed as having dyslexia in the first place.* If a vision problem affects learning, it can sometimes be misidentified as dyslexia because there are striking similarities between the two.

Vision Therapy Treatment For Dyslexia

Behavioral and Developmental Optometrists at the Exceptional Vision Therapy & Learning Center, serving the residents of Palmetto Bay and Miami in Florida, have the knowledge and experience to diagnose and treat vision disorders that masquerade as dyslexia or contribute to the unique challenges presented by dyslexia. However, Vision Therapy does not treat dyslexia itself.
