Doctors Robert Lauver and Maia Moyer, of Strasburg Family Eyecare, in Lancaster County, provide eye care and eyewear for the entire family, using state-of-the-art technologies to diagnose and treat vision problems. Lauver, a doctor of optometry, and board certified by the College of Vision Development as a Developmental Optometrist, specializes in pediatric vision development and Neuro-Optometric rehabilitation. Moyer, a primary care optometrist with a specialty in low vision, treats vision loss due to macular degeneration, glaucoma and other debilitating diseases.
Lauver and Moyer recommend beginning eye exams at six months old, because vision is learned and develops from infancy. Many vision problems go undetected by pediatric or school screenings because only visual acuity is screened, which is just one of the 17 skills that make up the complex process of vision. Students who have passed vision screenings but have difficulty learning may have underlying eye coordination and eye movement disorders contributing to learning challenges. These vision problems may be correctable.
Specific vision therapy programs are designed to treat autism, ADHD/ADD, convergence problems, strabismus (lazy eye), amblyopia, eye tracking (oculomotor dysfunctions), accommodation disorders, ambient visual disorders, traumatic brain injuries and stroke. Sports vision training works to improve the visual abilities of an athlete, with respect to his or her individual sport.
