How to get started with Vision Therapy
A full eye health examination within the last 12 months is required before we can begin the process.
1. Sensory Motor Evaluation and Reading Assessment
Our Sensory Motor Evaluation and Reading Assessment is a 1 ½ to 2 hour series of tests designed to evaluate a patient’s eye alignment, eye teaming, depth perception, and eye focusing abilities. We assess visual perceptual skills, visual motor skills, fluency, and screen for dyslexia. You can either fill out our history form online before your visit or here in our office during your visit. Please bring any prior vision examination records and school performance testing if available.

2. Consultation with Treatment Plan
The Sensory Motor Evaluation includes a one-hour consultation generally done within the same week. At the consultation, you will receive a report with diagnosis codes, treatment plan, and teacher recommendations. In order to ensure the best care possible, we would like to coordinate with all professionals and educators that may be working with our patients. Prior to speaking with anyone about your child, we need written authorization for our records.
3. Vision Therapy
Patients typically come to the office once or twice weekly for 50 minutes each visit. In addition, homework is given as reinforcement of what is learned during the office therapy sessions. Commitment to the therapy program and maintaining a schedule of weekly visits, is important in the success of the program.
4. Vision Therapy Progress Evaluations
Your child will be re-evaluated by Dr. Hock every 10 sessions through Evergreen Vision Clinic, P.C. This progress evaluation is important in monitoring the progress made in vision therapy and answer any questions that you might have. There are no charges for these evaluations as they are considered part of your vision therapy program.
