Vision is involved in most everything we do in life. Do you or your child struggle with school, work, attention, or the enjoyment of life? Consider how many hours of the day are spent working with books, papers, and computer screens. Visual skills are critical for the tremendous demands on focus, attention, and thinking that are needed for success today. Dr. Pearson's Functional Vision Evaluations go beyond basic eye exams to evaluate specific skills, such as two-eye coordination, eye tracking, focusing flexibility, and visual perceptual processing that are essential for academic and career success.

A Functional/Developmental Vision Evaluation is an essential part of a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to a child’s developmental or academic struggles. Dr. Pearson collaborates with other professionals in providing this important visual component. After an evaluation, therapeutic activities are prescribed. Many of these activities can be integrated within existing therapies or school programs, with progress monitored via Internet systems and occasional office visits.

Dr. Pearson makes extensive use of internet-based software, and at-a-distance coaching systems offering students/families effective therapeutic practice at home, which saves considerable time and resources over more traditional office-based programs (office-based therapy is available too).
