Vision Problems and Autism (ASD)

While autism and vision problems are separate medical issues, they are often comorbid and symptoms can overlap, which may make it harder to tell if a child has a vision issue along with autism. Vision therapy treatment for these vision issues will not correct autism, but alleviating these problems can help significantly.

Vision Therapy for Down Syndrome

Vision Therapy for Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is another disability which people do not immediately link with vision problems. However, here, as well, vision issues can be impacting a child with down syndrome, exacerbating their other problems. Correcting these vision issues can significantly help improve their quality of life.

Non-Verbal Learning Disorder

Non-verbal learning disorder, while not an officially diagnosed problem like autism, ADHD, or down syndrome, is a learning disability which is also often found alongside vision issues which can play a major role in the problems suffered by a child with this condition.

Vision problems are extremely common in children with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and non-verbal learning disorder.

In addition to helping people with learning-related vision issues, vision therapy can also help improve the quality of life for people who are neurodiverse. These include people with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and non-verbal learning disorder.

While these problems are not caused by vision issues, neurodiverse people often do have vision issues which, if corrected, can significantly improve their quality of life. As with many other vision issues in which certain skills are lacking, vision therapy is a great treatment option.

I haven't actually used the optometrist side, so my review is limited to the vision therapy offered.  This office was recommended by my occupational therapist for the treatment of my double vision following a stroke.

Love this location. I had a brain injury accident from day one one. All the team make you feel you still important and hope in the horizon after when the medical system fell you miserably. Dr. Ikeda very professional and very understanding about your issue. Two tombs up.

My husband and I were immediately impressed with Dr Ikeda. I was hit by a car while cycling which caused broken bones and three brain injuries. The brain injuries caused double vision. Dr. Ikeda examined my eyes and got me started on vision therapy with his occupational therapist who specializes in vision therapy.  She (Chris) is absolutely great.  I am impressed with the array of tools used to help recover my binocular vision.  I am doing things I never thought were possible (balance boards etc).  Chris pushes me and keeps me motivated. I really enjoy my sessions with her.  The office staff is always friendly and they have a wonderful appointment reminder tool that makes it easy to keep my calendar up to date. I am happy the rehab center at Little Co. of Mary recommended them!!

The Vision Therapy is handled in a separate office through a different door from the shared waiting room. Chris, the vision therapist, has a wide and varied assortment of tools, equipment and resources to best evaluate and treat most vision issues. After just a few visits, my double vision became easier to control, using exercises developed during the therapy process. It was time well-spent.

I have been coming here since I can remember. I love it here. The staff is so amazing and nice. They explain everything they gonna do and never make you feel rushed. Dr. Ikeda has always been my doctor and I would never want another one. He is the doctor for my whole family and is always asking how everyone is doing. I am also so crazy about picking out my frames and have to try so many and each person who helps me take the time and lets me try them all on. I would never want to go anywhere else! I definitely would recommend this office to anyone looking for a great eye doctor.

This is not for the eye exam but for the frames selection portion. I brought my prescription from Kaiser here with my VSP insurance. The reception staff was very polite and professional.  Manny helped me to pick out frames and explain my coverage.  Very helpful and patient not like the individual at the other place I rated here on Yelp.  I was running late and he still helped me and was not bothered at all.  I am so glad I came here ..........very pleased.

Very professional staff and pleasant.
