The Dream of Functional Vision

Are you a parent concerned with your child’s ability to focus, read, and learn? Have you experienced dizziness, double-vision, and a poorer quality of life after a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or another neurological event?

Dr. Alexandar Andrich and staff have focused on advanced vision solutions for more than 17 years, with the goal of developing and restoring full visual function to children and adults alike.

Visual function goes far beyond simply having 20/20 vision. Proper visual function can only occur when the eyes and brain work together as a team to focus, track, and perceive the world in motion around us. Dr. Alexandar Andrich and staff has devoted his career to exclusively practice neuro-optometry — an advanced area of optometry focused on retraining the brain and eyes to work together as a team to accurately interpret the world without headaches, strain, blurriness, or dizziness.

Vision Therapy/Developmental Optometry

Vision therapy is an individually-tailored regimen of eye exercises made to improve visual functions and retrain the brain to interpret visual input more accurately.

The Intersection of Neurology and Optometry

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy, a form of vision therapy that deals with vision rehabilitation following brain injury, applies the latest methods and treatments of neuro-plasticity and vision function to help patients develop or regain the essential visual skills necessary for learning and optimal daily function.

An undiagnosed vision condition, or one resulting from a traumatic brain injury, can result in the following problems:

  • Double-vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Visual field loss
  • Extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Eye focusing problems

As part of an interdisciplinary approach, neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy is a well-established and highly-effective method used to treat underlying vision function issues responsible for the problems listed above.
