To all our patients,
I hope that you and your family remain well and safe. Nobody knows what the next few months will bring and I wanted to contact you, to advise what we, VisionCare Development, are doing to ensure that we can continue to support you, our patients.
The VisionCare Development office is closed and we expect to remain so throughout this crisis. We are, however, still open for business. Our telephone and emails provide a method of contact and we provide video consultations and therapy via Zoom and other web-based software.
If you are having problems with your vision or auditory processing, please do call 01904 261126 or email using the webform on this site.
By taking these steps now, I am confident that whatever the future brings we will be able to continue to provide the high standard of service you have always received. All our staff will remain employed and salaried throughout the crisis and we look forward to welcoming you back into the practice when the threat of COVID-19 has passed.
Stay safe and well,
Welcome to Vision Care Development, York.
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.

How can 2 pieces of tape stuck to some glasses, transform the behaviour of a child who can't sit still or concentrate? Watch Ostyn's story to find out.....
Harrison was struggling at school. He was unable to copy from the white board and was having trouble reading.
After a few sessions of vision therapy the improvement has been remarkable.
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.
