Welcome to Desmond Vision Therapy
Your Vision Therapy Specialist in Lancaster, PA

Call us at 717-983-8836 today.

At Desmond Vision Therapy, we provide comprehensive eye care through the diagnosis and treatment of visual dysfunctions interfering with the ability to advance academically and professionally. Our mission is to provide quality care to patients of all ages by enhancing and optimizing the visual system.

The term "20/20 eyesight" describes the ability to read small letters at certain distances. However, 20/20 eyesight NEVER tells if an individual can: 

• See clearly all day long
• Focus back and forth from a distant target to a book
• See single rather than double
• Read without getting a headache
• Follow words on a page without losing one’s place
• Read without becoming tired

Eye teaming, focusing, and tracking skills often are not assessed during routine screenings. Do not be misled by believing that 20/20 eyesight alone is all that an individual needs to reach his or her full potential.

Schedule an appointment today with Dr. Amy Desmond, one of Lancaster's only developmental optometrists, to determine if you or your child may be struggling with a visual dysfunction.

His teachers noticed a differnce since his grades improved along with the ability to stay on task during school. Vision therapy is highly recommended for children who suffer from inattention and may even help some avoid treatment with medication."
