Welcome to Accent Eye Care and Sports Vision Therapy. We have demonstration videos explaining some of the basic exercises from your home vision therapy program. Vision involves more than just the ability to see 20/20. Vision is also the result of a person’s ability to process and interpret information received through the eyes.
The following initial exercises are the foundation to help you improve those visual skills that Dr. Gong discussed with you at your VT evaluation. Also included in your home packet are several items of resourceful information on how to take care of your vision. Please take the time to read them. At any time you have any questions regarding any of the information in these videos, please discuss them with your therapist or Dr. Gong at your next appointment. Please ask the staff how to get to these videos from this page.
