Welcome to Visual Symptoms Treatment Center
Improving Patients’ Vision Through Vision Therapy & Neuro-Optometry
As the premier center for treating complex vision problems and for providing vision therapy, we see patients arrive from all over Illinois and far beyond. We are known for our excellence in testing, diagnosing, and treating vision problems especially in our three main focuses below.
Does your child struggle with reading or have a learning problem? Vision therapy helps solve underlying vision problems that often obstruct one's ability to succeed in school, work, and sports. We also treat patients of all ages with lazy eyes (amblyopia), eye turns (strabismus), binocular vision dysfunction (BVD), special needs, and more.
If you or someone you know has recently suffered from a car accident, head trauma, concussion, or stroke, visiting a neuro-optometrist can restore any lost connection between the brain and eyes, resolving symptoms like dizziness, migraines, and inability to concentrate.
Has your child become more nearsighted or myopic? Even a change of -0.50 is enough to increase the risk of eye disease later in life, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinal detachment. Our uniquely effective myopia management helps children slow their myopia progression.

Passionately Improving Patient’s Vision With Hands-On Rehabilitation
Vision & Learning
Poor visual skills may cause children and adults to struggle with reading, writing, and concentrating throughout the day. When the eyes and brain learn to work together, visual function improves and struggles are alleviated.
Vision Therapy for children with special needs tend to have higher optical prescriptions and may have reduced visual acuity or clarity even with the best prescription.
Amblyopia and Strabismus
Vision therapy effectively treats amblyopia ("lazy eye") and strabismus ("cross-eyes") by teaching the brain and eyes to work together to correct the eye misalignment and thus achieve clear and comfortable vision.
Vision Therapy for ADHD
Vision problems in children can produce a similar set of symptoms to those found in ADHD, such as difficulty focusing in school, tendency to fidget or squirm in their seats, and making careless mistakes.
Sports Vision Therapy
It takes way more than physical strength and speed to be at the top of your game. Whether a child plays soccer, hockey, basketball, football or tennis, he or she needs excellent visual skills to excel in their sport.
Convergence Insufficieny (CI)
CI has been shown to affect a child’s reading ability, attention, and overall school performance. Vision therapy can treat this condition thus leading to more success in school, work, and in sports.
Matthew was unable to wear a mask over his face. This seems to be the case for many of our patients with sensory difficulties or patients that have difficulty breathing with the mask.
We are grateful to one of our patient’s mother’s who donated face shields to provide alternative protection. This has proven to more acceptable to many of our patients as was the case with Matthew seen happily wearing his new shield.
