Is your child struggling with reading and learning? Reading, writing, spelling and even paying attention all depend on an effective visual system. Eye tracking problems are one of 40 visual skills that can cause learning problems. 20/20 eyesight is not an indicator of a fully functional visual system. Specialty lenses and vision therapy can enhance visual performance.
Problems with eye alignment (how your eyes work together as a team) and how your brain processes visual information can cause nausea, balance issues, dizziness while driving and more. Eye misalignment often causes binocular vision dysfunction which is treatable with the right specialty lenses or vision therapy plan.
If you’re experiencing post trauma symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, light-sensitivity, or coordination problems, find relief knowing that vision may be the root cause of these symptoms. Problems with eye misalignment and clarity of vision can be corrected with specialized micro-prismatic lenses and rehabilitative therapy that reduces or even eliminates these symptoms.
Blurry distance vision (aka nearsightedness) is a symptom of a sight threatening eye disease called myopia. While nearsightedness may be corrected with glasses or contacts, parents need to know that treatments are now available to slow myopia progression in children. These treatments are non-invasive, proven effective and kid friendly.
A patient’s success can be the best word of advice. Here are some of ours.
Dr. Spokas is awesome, great with kids always taking time to explain and answer any questions we have very friendly person my daughter likes her very much and she likes going there to check her eyes. Office staff is pleasant always willing to help.
Rita the optician helped and explained very clearly to my child how to wear contacts with patience she is very nice and kind.
Dr. Spokas is incredibly knowledgeable and so kind. We trust her for our whole family's vision needs. Also love the therapists. Vision therapy was hugely helpful for our oldest - our child went from refusing to pick up a book to voraciously reading. Highly recommend this practice.
Always love coming to Clarendon Vision. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly, great selection of frames. Doctor always sees us on time and is very personable. You will not be disappointed with Clarendon Vision. Two thumbs up!
My daughter is usually very nervous when going to the doctor. Dr. Cummings did many things that were done to keep her occupied and distracted so she was a lot less nervous about the visit. She was wonderful! The entire staff is SO great! So easy to work with. We were very happy and pleased with the experience!
The staff and doctor Cumings were wonderful. I’ve never had an eye exam that was so thorough and actually addressed all my issues. Everyone was sweet and very helpful. The only place I’ll be trusting for my eye care. Thank you!
Clarendon Vision Development Center staff is welcoming, helpful, and friendly. Dr. Cumings is extremely knowledgeable and authentic. Her assessment was comprehensive and I valued time spent to explain my vision problem. I look forward to a long professional relationship with the center and Dr. Cumings.
I've been with Clarendon Vision for a long time now and wouldn't want to go anywhere else. My daughter has been on the Ortho-k treatment for about 6 years and she loves it. They made the process super easy for us and are always available if any problems come up.
Dr Spokas was the first Doctor who identified and associated my son’s reading disability with vision problems, after therapy we went from IEP to the normal reading levels. Thank you very much and we highly recommend Dr Spokas for you and your family
I am so glad I came here! I'm a truck driver and have had weird feelings in my head and really tired eyes along with anxiety, but not no more thanks to Clarendon Vision. The eye doctor and all the staff were amazing and so helpful. Thank you!
After seeing Dr. Spokas for many years and loving her approach, I saw Dr. Amber Cumings today for the first time. She was kind, thoughtful, answered all my questions, and was extremely knowledgeable. In the many years of my family going to Clarendon Vision, we have never had a bad experience. You cannot go wrong at this spectacular practice.
I have been seeing Dr. Spokas for almost 10 years. Her calendar was booked so I had to get on Dr. Cummings’ schedule instead. I am pleased to share that she was equally brilliant as Dr. Spokas. Both doctors are very personable and knowledgeable health care professionals. I am always satisfied with my visits to Clarendon Vision!
Dr. Amber was very thorough and worked carefully with me to make sure she understood as much as possible about what was happening with my vision. The reception and support staff was super nice in person and very helpful over the phone while scheduling and rescheduling.
They got me in same day for an eye injury, and the entire experience was wonderful! The staff and doctor were all very pleasant and the process went smoothly and quickly. I would definitely recommend!!!
What do our youngest patients say after completing treatment?
I can focus more and do my best work.
What is really awesome is that I made honor roll this past semester. If you are struggling with reading, I think that you should do vision therapy and change your life too.

I still have Dyslexia, but my eyes have much more stamina for reading.
I went from reading at a 4th grade level to a 10th grade level. I no longer get car sick; my coordination is better and I’m not nauseous when watching TV.
Before I would zone out all the time and now it is easier to pay attention all the time. My hockey game has improved a large amount.
I started going to this place and I noticed that I can see with my right eye.
I used to hate to read, but now I love it.
Before Vision Therapy, my head hurt every day. After I finished, my head stopped hurting and I read better.
Now I don’t have double vision and I see one of everything.
Wow! What a big difference from where I started to where I ended.
Now that I can see better, reading is a lot of fun and I do it all the time.
Vision Therapy has helped me with reading, balance, horseback riding, tumbling and a lot of other things.
Lining up numbers in math is easier. Reading is easier. My MAP testing score went up 18 points.
I have more courage and a better attitude doing more tasks.

Concussions are serious injuries and about 90 percent of the time, people suffer from vision problems after sustaining one. A concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury that sometimes presents persistent symptoms. The vision impairment symptoms that persist are collectively called post-trauma vision syndrome (PTVS).
Generally, dizziness is not a problem to ignore. It is a symptom that can stem from many different health conditions, ranging from a cardiac or neurological issue to a vision or inner ear disorder. Depending on the root of the problem, people do not experience dizziness the same way. Usually, dizziness resulting from binocular vision dysfunction does not cause the feeling that the room is spinning. Instead, you may feel unbalanced, and a headache may accompany your dizziness. A comprehensive functional eye exam is necessary to determine whether you have BVD.
According to a survey by the American Optometric Association, about 25 percent of children in school have vision problems. These are staggering numbers because we know children learn most through observation. All these children have a poorer academic life than their counterparts.
