Our Internet site attracts visitors from all over the globe who are interested in learning about vision therapy. This is great news, as we’re happy to help spread the word.However, because we’re based in the state of Wisconsin in the United States of America, we can’t provide clinical help for many of our readers.
Before we get to the referral sources, it’s important that you understand that a Functional Vision Test is important for a diagnosis, and why we can’t simply diagnose you based on a few symptoms you provide for us.
The visual system involves the eyes, the brain and visual pathways. There are many potential causes of a vision problem, and thorough testing is essential to pinpoint the issue. In a three-part series, we detailed what a qualified developmental optometrist will test for in a Functional Vision Test.
You need to be seen by a qualified, developmental optometrist. So where do you find one?
