The behavioral optometrist recognizes that vision is a dynamic process that is learned and directly effects how we think, how we solve problems and how we feel. The behavioral practitioner is not only concerned about getting you to see 20/20 but how you perceive your environment and how efficiently you use your eyes. Vision therapy is a holistic way of providing care and remediating the visual system.
