Choosing a Doctor
Share |
Selecting an optometrist for you and your family is an important decision. Fortunately, there are well qualified COVD members located in large cities and small towns throughout the United States as well as in many countries throughout the world.

For some vision problems, eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery are not the answer. When basic visual skills including eye focusing, eye coordination, eye movements, and visual perception are problematic, in many cases improved visual function and comfort can only be obtained through vision therapy.

Not all optometrists provide in-depth testing for developmental and functional vision problems and the relevant treatment, such as Vision Therapy. Optometrists who are members of the COVD emphasize an expanded functional and behavioral approach to patient evaluations. Their approach to vision care is directed at correcting existing vision problems and enhancing visual abilities to allow individuals to see clearly and comfortably.
