At Dr. Mark Gordon's Developmental Optometry office we are committed to providing advanced vision therapy services in a professional and comfortable environment. As a board certified specialist in vision development and therapy we work on and improve visual function. 

Vision Therapy

Optometric vision therapy is a highly specialized treatment for dysfunctions of the visual system. These vision challenges can be congenital such as when born with a crossed eye, developmental as a result of autism or ADD/ADHD, or acquired from a head trauma, stroke, or neurological disease.

Visual Developmental and Visual Processing Evaluations

A comprehensive evaluation takes time. Dr. Gordon explores eye alignment at both distance and near. Stability of eye alignment, focusing (accommodation function), convergence (ability to bring both eyes together to see easily at near), depth perception, color vision, visual-perceptual abilities (for understanding), visual-motor integration (for handwriting), visual-auditory integration (for phonetic decoding), vision and posture, timing and rhythm (for multi sensory processing), and primitive reflex integration.

At the office we have special equipment that measures eye movements during the reading process. In that way we can see where ones are are looking and how long they look at a word when reading. In addition when doing a sports vision assessment we also have specialized devices for exploring eye hand coordination, peripheral awareness and reaction time.

Eye Exams

Dr. Gordon takes even routine eye exams very seriously. During a yearly or bi-yearly examination, our patients receive a patient history review, a series of vision and eye tests, assessments of eye focusing and movement, and an eye health evaluation. We are happy to discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition. Call us a today at 716-871-0074 to schedule an appointment.

Contact Lenses

Not sure that glasses are for you? We are happy to discuss the various options with you to determine which type of contact lens will best fit your needs and lifestyle. Schedule your examination today by calling 716-871-0074. They are many advantages to consider when determining if contact lenses are right for you and we are here to answer any questions.

Lasik

Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Please call the office to discuss your vision concerns 716-871-0074.

Testimonial

  • "Before our daughter began vision therapy she was struggling with reading and sports. We thought she was just clumsy (walking into walls and falling a lot). My wife and I know something was't quite right; so we had our daughter tested for Central Auditory Processing Disorder, took her to an optometrist and to an eye specialist at a hospital. My wife's mother urged us to see Dr. Gordon. A significant visual tracking problem was found.
    After vision therapy our daughter went from needing extra help with reading to reading above grade level. She is now excelling in softball and has been named to the All-Star Team this year. She has become more confident and willing to try new things."
    "We can't thank Dr. Gordon's office enough for our daughter's success."

  • "Before vision therapy reading was terrible. Nothing made sense on the paper. Vision therapy helped me with spelling and reading. I'm not skipping lines when reading and I love how I was taught to spell. I bring home 100's in spelling and reading is coming along too!
    I'm also on the Honor Roll at school too!"

  • "Our son was in 2nd grade when we found out that he had vision problems. He was referred to the occupational therapist in school for his handwriting. After her testing she called to tell us that all of signs were related to vision problems. Our son complained of headaches, motion sickness and very bad handwriting.
    Most of his teachers were telling us they thought he had ADD or ADHD.
    His attention span in school was short and he rushed through his work. He absolutely hated anything that had to do with writing.
    After starting vision therapy we saw improvements very quickly; as well as his teachers. His handwriting has improved tremendously and his posture is much better.
    We are so thankful for the occupational therapist discovering his vision challenge. We drove an hour and a half each way to Dr. Gordon's office for our weekly vision therapy sessions.
    The success of our son was well worth the drive."

  • "What a difference! It has been an emotional roller coaster dealing with certain aspects of our son's left. But it was refreshing to know that we could count on the staff administering vision therapy to have his best interest in mind. To watch our son overcome the obstacles he had prior to vision therapy is worth everything. We absolutely recommend vision therapy because we have seen what it can do for our child. We are grateful for vision therapy and couldn't imagine his life without it!"

  • "I saw words differently and struggled throughout my childhood with my sight. After years of testing and appointments I found Dr. Gordon who diagnosed a Convergence Insufficiency. After a few months of vision therapy I was amazed at the my improvement.
    My life is truly changed!"

  • "My son has always struggled in school. As an educator I looked for answers based on what I knew; learning disabilities, ADHD, etc. By the time he was in 4th grade I had to find some way to help my son. I realized that many of his symptoms were similar to many of my students who had Central Auditory Processing difficulties. Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center confirmed the diagnosis and recommended a visual processing evaluation. No one ever considered his reading challenges to be related to a visual processing problem. Since starting vision therapy his struggles in school have decreased, his math grades have improved as well as his reading; and he is more confident in his ability to succeed."

  • "Dr. Gordon is a developmental optometrist, which means...he is trained to deal with eye dysfunctions beyond simple near-sightedness/far-sightedness and...he can help improve vision through behavior programs. Dr. Gordon patiently worked with me to get the best possible prescription...He's a compassionate and very competent eyecare professional, and I strongly recommend him."
