General Eye- Exam w/ Prescription. Also included: computerized testing to evaluate possible reading or attention issues, and visual skills testing for overall academic and sports success.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Vision therapy helped Dr. Tanya Polec overcome significant visual problems that went undiagnosed until her teenage years. Seeing is our dominant sense and our primary source for gathering information in learning. Vision problems can have a profound effect on how we learn. Many children who experience academic difficulty may have a visual dysfunction in addition to their primary reading or learning dysfunction. These conditions are treatable. Many learning difficulties can be attributed to vision problems that are not detected during typical school vision screenings.
What do you love most about your job?
The ability to change a person's day-to-day life because their vision allows them to read, to re-focus, to learn and to gain the confidence to function more independently.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
A college graduation notice from a patient who wasn't expected to complete high school. (We''ve had more than one.)
