4D VISION GYM, Cromwell, CT
Because standard vision tests do not test for many visual issues, parents are not always aware of how undiagnosed vision problems can hold their children back and how these visual difficulties can cause children to underperform in reading, mathematics and sports. At 4D Vision Gym, a vision training center in Cromwell CT, Dr. Juanita Collier MS OD and her staff show members how to utilize Vision Therapy to correct visual issues and make learning and playing easier and more fun. Vision Therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option for double vision, lazy eye, crossed eyes, convergence insufficiency, accommodative insufficiency, eyestrain, and much more. For a detailed listing of symptoms to watch for, visit: www.DrJuanitaCollier.com/symptoms. Schedule a complimentary vision screening to learn more or visit: www.4DVisionGym.com.
