Binocular Care and Vision Therapy

Binocular Vision and Vision Therapy are specialty services aimed at improving a child’s visual performance for school and learning related activities.    While clear eyesight is important for everyone, true vision involves much more.   Binocular vision is how well the eyes work with each other and the brain to process, interpret and integrate visual information.   Vision Therapy uses at-home and in-office eye training therapies to improve any visual deficiencies, thus improving a child’s visual performance for school, learning, and sports.

Comprehensive Eye Examination

The eye exam is the most critical part of your time spent at Coastal Vision. Our doctors take great care to make sure your exam is as complete and thorough as possible. The vision assessment includes determining your new prescription, evaluating your lifestyle in terms of what vision solution you need, and a comprehensive assessment of the health of your eyes. This includes checking eye pressure, pupil dilation, and high definition retinal imaging to screen for diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and more.

Contact Lens Evaluation

Finding the perfect contact lenses for your eyes can be tricky, as moisture across eyes and lenses varies so much. Comfort is of the utmost importance. The contact lens evaluation accounts for not only your eye health and prescription, but the needs of your lifestyle and comfort levels. Eyes are evaluated for allergies and other causes of dry eyes, and corneal topography is used to map out the cornea for your best lens fit. Trial lenses are fit to assess the visual performance and comfort of the lens. Follow-up evaluations are provided to reassess the day to day lens performance and your satisfaction.

Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)

Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is a non-surgical way to correct your vision while you sleep. These are special contact lenses that gently reshape the front surface of your cornea while you wear them overnight. Once the process is complete, your need for glasses or contact lenses during the day is eliminated. CRT is an FDA approved treatment that has been proven in several studies to slow or even stop the progression of myopia in children. It is also an excellent alternative for those who considered Lasik surgery but were marked as bad candidates.
