Welcome to Vision Care Development, York.

Ruth Perrott

VisionCare Development specialises in developing the visual skills of children and adults who have reading and writing difficulties. Additionally anyone who is experiencing vision problems following a brain or eye injury, or has problems with double vision or a lazy eye will benefit from our knowledge and vision development experience. 


Our team is unique and together we are passionate about vision in its broadest sense and diagnosing and understanding why it is not performing at it’s best capability for you, as an individual.

At VisionCare Development we use Vision Therapy techniques, including individual treatment programmes, designed to successfully correct the specific visual challenges faced by children and adults. This includes Vivid Vision which uses Virtual Reality (VR) technology to encourage a suppressed visual pathway (i.e. lazy eye), back into use.

Our unique, interactive, and hands-on approach to Vision Therapy allows our patients to overcome their visual barriers. We are passionate about our patients finding success in all the areas of their life which are important to them, whether it be in their social, athletic, or academic pursuits. We offer a fun and comfortable environment where our patients feel at home.

Many of our success stories are from individuals, parents and carers who never thought that they could find a solution to their specific problems.  We understand that every patient is unique and we are passionate about helping people improve their lives and overcome their vision difficulties.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is a series of exercises for the eyes and brain. It is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye, crossed eyes, double vision, convergence insufficiency and some reading and learning disabilities. Many patients who have been told, "it's too late," or "you'll have to learn to live with it" have benefited from vision therapy.

At VisionCare Development, we are passionate about using this optometrist-supervised treatment program that can, in many cases, successfully correct specific visual challenges faced by children and adults.
