Vision Training or Therapy is like "physiotherapy" for eyes & the visual cortex in the brain. It is used to treat visual conditions in both children and adults, allowing them to concentrate, learn, work and play free of frustrating vision problems. Harmony Vision offers office-based training, which research shows is the most effective.

Book a consultation with our optometrists to assess your visual needs today.
