Insurance & Financing

Will insurance cover this type of treatment?

Visual perceptual therapy for learning issues or educational problems is not covered under health plans. Some health insurance plans may cover a portion of the evaluation and treatment if there is a specific eye muscle problem. We do not bill insurance, but will assist you in the process of seeking reimbursement.

Vision Therapy Q&A With Our Doctors

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is an individualized treatment plan prescribed by a Doctor of Optometry. It is used to treat eye conditions, such as strabismus (eye turn) or amblyopia (“lazy eye”). Through Vision Therapy, a Doctor of Optometry also teaches, improves and/or reinforces important visual skills, such as eye tracking, eye focusing and eye teaming abilities. Without these visual skills, simple tasks like reading or copying notes from the board become difficult. Skipping words or lines while reading, using a finger while reading, blurry near vision, double vision, eyestrain and/or eye fatigue are also common symptoms.

How do I know Vision Therapy is right for my child?

If your child displays symptoms of strabismus (eye turn), amblyopia (“lazy eye”), skipping words or lines while reading, using a finger while reading, blurry near vision, double vision, eyestrain and/or eye fatigue, it is suggested your child has a complete eye exam from a Doctor of Optometry. If symptoms persist or the Doctor of Optometry recommends Vision Therapy, then a Vision Therapy assessment is the next step. The doctor will perform a thorough one-on-one assessment and will determine which conditions are present, whether Vision Therapy is suitable, the type of eye exercises required and the number of sessions needed.

Vision Development in Children

The development of vision starts with healthy eyes and good eyesight. However, that is not all we need to see comfortably, accurately, and efficiently. We need to understand what and where we are seeing things. During infancy and time as a toddler, we learn to use our vision to explore colors, shapes, objects, people and develop depth perception and coordination. Learn more about vision development here.

2009 College of Optometrists in Vision Development Conference


Congratulations to Amy, Barbara, Gail and Krystal on achieving their Certified Optometric Vision Therapist Designations!


Vision Therapists at Boulder Valley Vision Therapy Center Become certified optometric Vision therapists

For Immediate Release Aurora, OH — The College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) has announced that Krystal Hanegan, Gail Henry, Barbara Nelson and Amy Zeiger of Boulder, Colorado, have each been designated as a Certified Optometric Vision Therapist (COVT) at the association’s Annual Meeting held October 13-17, 2009 in Denver, Colorado. These therapists were four of 16 therapists nationally, awarded COVT status by the COVD Board of Directors in 2009. They work in the office of Jennifer Simonson, O.D., F.C.O.V.D. and Dr. Roger Dowis O.D., F.C.O.V.D.

To become a COVT, a therapist must be employed by an optometrist who is a Fellow of the College, complete a guided study education program, and pass a written and an oral examination process administered by the COVD International Examination and Certification Board. The certification process provides an opportunity for optometric vision therapists to expand and document their knowledge and skills in vision therapy and enhances their ability to assist the optometrist in providing patient services in this area. Achieving certification status provides recognition of the therapist’s capabilities in this increasingly important area of optometric care.

The College of Optometrists in Vision Development is a professional membership association of optometrists, optometric vision therapists, optometric resident, students and other eye care professionals. In addition to conducting a certification program, COVD also provides members and the public with access to information, research, education materials and programs in the areas of developmental vision care, optometric vision therapy, vision rehabilitation and related fields.
