At The Solution Center in Westerville, Ohio we care for infants to teens, patients with special needs, and athletes of all ages. Our eye doctors are experienced and skilled in providing vision care and comprehensive eye exams for children with autism, autism spectrum disorders, and developmental delays.
All of the doctors at The Solution Center have worked with children and with patients of all ages who have special needs for many years. As Developmental Optometrists (also called Behavioral Optometrists) our doctors focus not only on the health of the eyes but also on how the eyes and brain work together to process information. If your child is having reading or learning difficulties, has an eye turn, or has recently had a concussion, he or she should be evaluated by a developmental optometrist.

A concussion often causes changes to vision and to visual processing. Most of these changes are not detected through an exam with your child’s primary care physician or emergency room physician. While it is extremely important for your child to be seen by a primary care physician or emergency room physician, it is also critical to be seen by a pediatric eye doctor after experiencing a concussion. Following a concussion, children often experience slight changes in vision and/ or perception which can cause headaches, fatigue, changes in visual acuity, and changes in the way the eyes take in and process information (learning).
With proper monitoring, attention, and treatment, some of the negative effects caused by a concussion or TBI can be corrected.

If your child is having difficulty in school with reading, math, organizational skills (often called “executive function skills”), in sports (difficulty hitting a baseball/softball), becomes tired or irritable during schoolwork, or is not living up to their potential, s/he may have an undiagnosed visual disorder. Attend our information session and find out how children, adults, and even college and professional athletes have benefited from vision therapy targeted to improve eye tracking, eye teaming, eye-hand coordination and other issues.

Enroll your child in a summer camp that will increase their overall ability to learn by strengthening their mental skills instead of teaching coping methods. Give us one hour a day this summer and we will give you a brand new student ready to return to school and excel. This is not a tutoring program but instead is a method to improve executive function skills. It’s one on one brain training!
To learn more, please attend our free workshop on March 16, 2016 at 6:30 pm at 937 Polaris Woods Blvd in Westerville. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional Information about PACE can be found here.

Many high school students, even those who are excellent students, have difficulty with the time limits on the SAT and ACT. Sadly, running out of time and leaving questions blank results in lower SAT / ACT scores.
Through an evaluation, our doctors can find out what is causing the problem. An undiagnosed visual issue can cause reading speeds to be slower. These issues are not detected through a pediatrician’s or school nurse’s office screening. Our developmental optometrists are very experienced in detecting, understanding, and treating visual issues that effect perception and learning. Contact our office for a comprehensive eye exam or a vision and learning evaluation to find out if an undiagnosed vision issue is slowing his or her reading speed.

In the game of baseball, nothing is more important than visual concentration and hand-eye coordination. I began my sports vision training as a freshman in high school. With the help and guidance of Dr. Bill Lay, as well as hard work on the baseball diamond, I became a starter my sophomore year …read more
I was getting headaches at school almost everyday. Dr. Stutler told me I should wear reading glasses. Now I don’t have headaches and I love my glasses.

My grades went up! I saw the biggest improvement in Language Arts and Social Studies. Since those classes are all about reading and writing, it makes sense that they are easier now.

Vision therapy is used to improve the coordination and perception of the two eyes as they gather, process, and integrate visual information. If your child or loved one has one of the following conditions, he/she should be seen by a developmental optometrist for a comprehension vision examination:
Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. We can measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral vision, eye focusing, eye tracking and teaming, visualization skills, and more.
