Our practice is referral based only. We do not provide primary eye care services, fit contact lenses or dispense eyeglasses. We also do not perform vision evaluations with family members of referred patients but ask them to be seen at the referring doctor’s office first. At the conclusion of vision therapy, we return all patients to the referring office as we do not do ongoing care unless absolutely necessary.
We do not provide primary eye care services, fit contact lenses or dispense eyeglasses.
We also co-manage patients with concussion and brain injury with a variety of concussion healthcare providers. We have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of concussion related vision disorders including vision therapy/neuro-optometric rehab, prisms and therapeutic tints.

As a long-time researcher and Associate Professor at Salus University in Philadelphia, Dr. Gallaway has participated in many studies establishing the effectiveness of vision therapy and the role of vision in concussion management. The research articles below can be helpful to share with patients and parents:
- Functional MRI testing shows brain changes after vision therapy
- Randomized clinical trials show effectiveness of vision therapy for convergence insufficiency (CITT, CITT-ART) and accommodative disorders
- Vision therapy is long-lasting
- Vision therapy effective for convergence excess
- Tracking improved with vision therapy in large study
- Vision disorders very common after concussion in adolescents
- Post-concussion vision disorders respond well to vision therapy
- Amblyopia is also treatable in older children and adolescents
