We would like to take this opportunity extend to you a warm welcome.

Dr. Cantwell and his staff specialize in treating children who suffer from vision problems that interfere with a child’s ability to read and learn.  Research shows that up to 80% of learning is dependent on vision.  As such, an undiagnosed vision problem may have a profound effect on a child’s education.

Many of the symptoms of vision problems, such as difficulty concentrating on classwork, daydreaming, or poor/slow reading are similar to those symptoms displayed by children affected by learning disorders.  Vision problems that interfere with learning and reading can easily be overlooked or misdiagnosed as learning disabilities, such as ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia or LD. 

Dr. Cantwell performs thorough vision screenings to detect overlooked vision problems. In most cases, these problems can be corrected with reading glasses, vision therapy, or both.

If you suspect that your child may be suffering from undiagnosed vision problems, please see our page titled, "Does My Child have a Vision Problem?", or contact us to schedule a thorough eye examination.
