Toronto’s Vision Therapy Specialists
Welcome to the office of Dr. April Eryou, Dr. Katie Chan & Dr. Melissa Yeung.
The ability to “teach” the eyes to see, to train or retrain the visual system, which involves both the mechanics of seeing and the interpretation of vision, is what Vision Therapy is all about.
In years past many people had surgery on the muscles of the eye to straighten a turned eye, or secure a lazy eye, but unless the newly affixed eye was taught how to properly see and integrate the information it was gathering with that of the other eye, the muscles would slacken again to help turn off the information coming from the ‘lazy eye’ and surgery was often repeated throughout the lifetime. With Vision Therapy, not only are the eyes taught to point in the same direction, but the brain is also taught to combine the picture from the right and left eye together so that a person can see in 3D. In many instances, this can replace the need for eye surgery. Once taught to see, the eye will never be “lazy” again! We love what we do and are proud to offer Vision Therapy to all patients, young and old.

Free Glasses with OHIP Eye Exam for JK Kids!
Eye See…Eye Learn® provides comprehensive eye exams by participating local optometrists to junior kindergarten students across Ontario. The eye exams are covered under provincial health insurance (or OHIP) when you show your child’s health card. This means that there is no out-of-pocket cost for the eye exam. If the child requires a pair of glasses, they will receive a complimentary pair donated by Nikon Lenswear, OGI and your participating optometrist. The value of the glasses is estimated over $250.
