What Sets Us Apart
We are a dynamic practice of vision specialists working to help patients in our community address a multitude of neurological vision disorders. We are continually striving to utilize the newest tools and technology to help our patients achieve the best visual function possible. Testing includes functional vision testing, the ReadAlyzer dynamic reading assessment program, Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) Testing, and Visual Cognitive assessments.
Our goal is to enhance the visual development for patients of all ages in the most effective manner possible. The Center for Vision Development is a board certified practice through The College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) providing testing and treatment for visual challenges within Anne Arundel County and surrounding areas.
Our evaluation process involves a step by step format to determine if a vision problem exists or if vision enhancement is required. The initial appointment will provide a complex look at you or your child’s visual system and typically lasts 60 minutes. The second appointment assesses visual performance skills necessary in the classroom or office. Following this second evaluation a consultation will be scheduled with the doctor where the results will be discussed and you will be provided with a detailed vision report including recommended academic or workplace accommodations. When vision problems are detected, or vision enhancement is requested, an individualized treatment program will be designed by one of our doctors. Treatment may involve the use of lenses, prisms, filters and/or Neuro-Visual Rehabilitative Therapy. All therapy sessions are performed on an individual basis.
