1. Comprehensive Eye Exam

Prior to starting a vision therapy program, we require all of our patients to have a comprehensive eye exam. This allows one of our doctors to evaluate overall eye health in addition to visual function to ensure we have a good baseline evaluation and diagnosis.

2. Sensorimotor Exam (baseline vision therapy testing)

Following a comprehensive exam, the doctor will refer you to our vision therapist for further evaluation. This baseline testing will give us a starting point so we can have a valid reference point and accurately track progress throughout the program. We have two levels of testing:

  • Level 1: Visual Skills Evaluation – this testing takes about 1 hour and includes an assessment of basic visual skills such as eye focusing and eye teaming in addition to an evaluation of primitive reflexes.
  • Level 2: Visual Skills + Visual Perception Evaluation – this testing takes about 2.5-3 hours and is usually scheduled in two separate appointments. This testing includes all of the same testing from the level 1 evaluation in addition to a perceptual battery of testing to evaluate visual perception skills such as visual memory and spatial awareness.

 The doctor will refer for a specific level of testing based on their findings at your comprehensive exam.


“If your child has been struggling with reading, writing or other visual tasks please consider pursuing vision therapy. My son has been struggling with reading since a car accident we were in, and traditional methods of reading remediation were not successfully addressing the issue on their own. Jessi at Vision Development Center in Craig, has helped my son make up lost ground and has helped him have fun while doing so!” - CVR
