WHAT IS VISION THERAPY?

Proper visual skills are more than just being able to read the bottom line on the eye chart. Eyes must work together as a team and make quick accurate movements for a person to understand the world around them. This is more important during childhood where the foundations of learning are set. The crucial skills learned in academics will set the path a child takes for a career. The five key areas of function addressed by Optometric Vision Therapy are visual motor guidance, eye tracking (ocular motility), eye focusing (near and far accommodation), eye alignment (binocular convergence and divergence), and visual information processing (including visual memory and visualization). 

Signs and Symptoms

- Headache when reading or doing computer work

- Omitting, inserting or re-reading words

- Covering an eye when reading

- Excessive eye rubbing

- Difficulty completing board work

- Difficulty remembering and understanding what is read

Treatment Techniques

At Eyecare Plus we utilize different techniques depending on a patient’s condition. We then personalize a treatment plan that is conducted in our office and supplemented with at home activities to provide rapid resolution of their condition.
    
Many of the exercises we implement focus on improving the pathway from the eye to the brain. A few of them include:

- Anaglyphic (3-D) filters

- Computerized VTS4 3-D game system

- Visual processing algorithm 

MEET OUR TEAM

DR. GURBAL

Dr. Gurbal received her Doctor of Optometry degree from The New England College of Optometry and her Bachelor of Science from Florida State University. She completed a post- graduate residency in Pediatrics and Vision Therapy at Southern College of Optometry. During this residency she gained experience working with children, diagnosing and managing common eye disorders found in the pediatric population, and successfully implementing vision therapy programs for both adults and children.

From a very young age, Dr. Gurbal had always had an interest in the field of optometry. As a young child, she suffered from many reading problems, and it wasn’t until she enrolled in a vision therapy program that she began to realize what her passion in life was. The benefits or vision therapy did wonders for her, and now she is fully committed to providing the service to help strengthen children’s vision as it relates to academics and athletics.

Dr. Gurbal is an active member of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD), American Optometric Academy (AOA), the Georgia Optometric Association (GOA), and the Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEP). She is the currently the InfantSEE Chairperson for the state of Georgia. As chairperson, she attended the first InfantSEE Summit meeting in Dallas in 2007. She continues to educate the public about the InfantSEE program by incorporating information about the program in health care clinics throughout Fulton County. It is her goal to expand this knowledge throughout the state.

In 2008, Dr. Gurbal was honored with the Georgia Young Optometrist of the Year Award. As a developmental optometrist, she continues to expand her knowledge by attending optometric conventions, participating in research, and attending continuing education courses.

Dr. Gurbal currently resides in Smyrna, Ga, and likes to spend her spare time outdoors with her husband Chris.
