“ Vision Therapy is the art and science of understanding how another person sees the world through their eyes, knowing how the perception is warped and knowing how to fix it.”

Just got a great review on yelp!

"Thank you very much, Dr. Shao, for devotedly helping my 13 years old son's vision and tracking problems for a lifelong changing.

After completing 30 vision therapy sessions with Dr. Shao, Scott is now able to focus in his reading and has vastly improved in his comprehensive reading skills and is doing well at school."

So passionate about what I do. Here's another testimonial I received last week. 

"Honestly, during the whole process I didn’t quite immediately notice a change. But after half a year taking another eye examination, surprisingly all those problems disappeared. I gained back my 20/20 eyesight, which my parents never imagine I would get back without the use of glasses or contacts." - A. Siu

"If you are considering letting your child take vision therapy, I highly recommend it. The therapy requires the patient to do eye exercise almost everyday, but Dr. Shao tries to make the exercise as fun as possible so that it won’t be tormenting to do and also the exercise only takes about 10 minutes each time."

Before heading to your family doctor, you might want to check with an optometrist that specializes in vision therapy.

"He actually helped improve my prescription after the vision therapy. I really have him to thank, for relieving my eyes of the intense strain and also for improving my vision and prescription."

There are many different parts of the eye that help to create vision. Light passes through the cornea, the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. The cornea bends - or refracts - this incoming light. The iris, the colored part of the eye, regulates the size of the pupil, the opening that controls the amount of light that enters the eye. Behind the pupil is the lens, a clear part of the eye that further focuses light, or an image, onto the retina. The retina is a thin, delicate, photosensitive tissue that contains the special "photoreceptor" cells that convert light into electrical signals. These electrical signals are processed further, and then travel from the retina of the eye to the brain through the optic nerve, a bundle of about one million nerve fibers. We "see" with our brains; our eyes collect visual information and begin this complex process.

Will too much TV and video games make you go blind?

Seems obvious, right? Surprisingly, many people who care about their eyesight aren't always that good about getting to the doctor. A survey by the American Optometric Association (AOA) found that 85 percent of people valued their sight as their most prized sense, but less than half of that group had had an eye exam in the past two or three years.
