Welcome from Dr. Diane Serex-Dougan
Diane Serex-Dougan's (Dr. Diane) practice takes a behavioral approach to vision and vision related problems. She understands the impact stress has on one's vision. Even those with "20/20" vision when confronted with up-close work or studying can experience symptoms such as headaches and blurred vision.
Through careful examination and application of stress relieving lenses and vision therapy Dr. Diane is able to provide her patients relief from the stress that is placed on the visual system.
Do You Need an Behavioral Optometric Evaluations?
- Is your child having trouble with reading or learning?
- Is your child just starting school?
- Does your child seem to be uncoordinated in visually demanding sports?
- Do you feel your child has "behavior problems"?
- Is your child reading "below their potential"?
- Do you participates in athletics and want to improve your performance?
- Do you work at a computer?
- Is your job visually demanding?
- Do you suffers from burning, itchy eyes, eye strain or visual fatigue (with no medical eye problem)?
If you answer "yes" to any of these questions a behavioral optometric evaluation is recommended.
Optometric vision therapy is recommended when the visual problem cannot be solved with environmental changes or lenses only. The procedures, which may involve using specialized instruments, are individualized based on the visual skill level of the patient. The vision therapy program begins “where the patient is.”
Vision Therapy Evaluation
To determine if Optometric vision therapy is appropriate for a patient, an extensive evaluation is performed. This evaluation includes not only the determination of someone’s visual acuity (sight) at both distance and close and refractive error (existence and amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism)
Optometrists are a pivotal part of the rehabilitation of a patient who has suffered from an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Post Concussion Syndrome also falls into the category of brain injuries.
