Training for Your Eyes
All skills take practice and time to develop. Visual skills are no different. Children’s visual skills develop in the same way that other skills, like walking and talking, do. Vision therapy is like physiotherapy for the eyes. It helps the brain and eyes to work together as a team.
But, vision therapy is not just exercises. It’s a tailored treatment plan customized for each patient according to their specific needs. Sessions may take place in-office, but there might be some at-home work as well. Your optometrist will determine the best course of action and show you how to help your child with their treatments.
To see if vision therapy is right for your child, book an appointment with The Bixby Eye Center today.
Does My Child Have a Vision Issue?
There are several indicators of a vision issue in children. Look for:
- Headaches when doing close-up work
- Sloped printing
- Poor reading comprehension
- Holding books or devices close to the face
- Tilting their head
- Closing an eye while reading
- Skipping or repeating lines when reading
The best way to tell if your child has a vision issue is to bring them to The Bixby Eye Center for a comprehensive eye exam. Our team has plenty of experience with kid’s eyes and can put your little one at ease during the exam process.

Thank you for helping me select my first pair of glasses! I thought I would have to search the shelves by myself, but Robin and Don were so kind and helpful. I felt like they really had my best interest in mind.”
All the staff is great!
Tricia helped me with my appointment, and she was very friendly and helpful with figuring out my insurance and ordering contacts.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Kern for several years, and he is wonderful. I think I have a complicated prescription, and he seems to totally understand how to examine and treat me. I also saw Don to help me choose frames. He is one of the best opticians I’ve encountered. I’ve been wearing glasses for 63 years, so I’ve been to a lot of opticians!
I wouldn’t change a thing!
