Three to five children out of every classroom have vision problems that can affect learning, reading, and overall school performance.  Most of the time parents, teachers, doctors, and especially the children have no idea they are seeing any different than anyone else.  So many of these children suffer needlessly and do not reach their potential.

We need your help.  We know that not only parents, but teachers, pediatricians, school nurses, counselors, and administrators know when a child is struggling and reach out to help.  We are here to give you tools to know when it may be a vision problem and where to go to get answers.

Our doctors often go to different groups to conduct workshops to train educators and professionals how to assess, test for and distinguish visual conditions that keep children from doing well in school.  In this hands-on workshop you’ll have the opportunity to practice tests on other participants and ask questions.

Sign your group up for a workshop today! For more information, feel free to contact us at 509-654-9256.

Meet The Developmental Optometrist

Dr. Winters is board-certified in vision development and vision therapy.  In 2010, he started a vision therapy center in Yakima, Washington.  His advocacy for children that struggle with life-altering developmental vision problems has included over 100 lectures in colleges, professional groups, parent groups, and schools. He is one of the founders of Building Vision, a non-profit that raises awareness and funds for individuals struggling with these vision problems and which has given free screenings to almost 1000 children in the Yakima area.  He established the Harvest in the Heart of the Northwest Conference which is an educational seminar held biennially in Yakima, providing continuing education specific to developmental optometry. He is the clinical director of Washington Vision Therapy Center and is currently serving as the president of the Yakima Valley Optometric Society.
