At Excel Institute we identify and treat both children and adults with various ocular conditions negatively impacting the visual system. We also provide sports vision training for athletes. Common complains we treat include double vision, blurred vision, headaches, reading difficulties, delayed processing speed, poor attention or concentration, and a decline in cognitive abilities. Our program helps to relieve these symptoms by improving the relationship between the eyes and the brain. The two populations we work most closely with are children lacking visual skills critical to learning efficiently and individuals that have sustained a brain injury.
Our team also utilizes a variety of equipment and technology that is exclusive to our clinic and is critical to the success we achieve., such as Syntonics Phototherapy, Sanet Vision Integrator, Wayne Directional Sequencer and Wayne Saccadic Fixator, Wayne to name a few. Prism and lenses are powerful tools that significantly impact our treatment success. They are used extensively at Excel Institute during treatment and are also prescribed as spectacles. Prism is effective in improving eye teaming and binocular skills. They also have a potent effect on posture and mobility. Great care is taken to determine the appropriate prism or lens if it is prescribed in spectacles.
Our comprehensive vision therapy intervention is driven by Developmental Optometrists, Dr. Mark Noss and Dr. Rebekah Noss-Lynch along with our lead vision therapist, Brooke Ensing M.S., O.T.R.L.
Allison, 32, was hit by a motor vehicle in January 2017, resulting in a traumatic brain injury. Allison came to Excel Institute due to unresolved issues with eye strain, fatigue, memory, and attention. After evaluation, Allison began an aggressive vision therapy program to enhance her visual abilities. After only a few short months, Allison's visual system made remarkable improvements resolving the previously experienced symptoms and bringing efficiency back into her roles as a professional, a mother, and a wife. Way to go, Allison!
