The primary way a person gathers information about the world is through their eyes. What the brain does with the information is what we call VISION.Read More

Welcome to Focus Center for Vision and Learning
Dr. Lane provides full scope pediatric eye care with a special interest in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Lane often serves as the primary eye care provider for young children but is often the specialist for older children and adults. Many patients who see Dr. Lane have been evaluated and are currently working with other eye doctors at the same time as they are being seen by Dr. Lane.
Many referrals to Dr. Lane are made by Occupational and Physical Therapists, tutors, teachers, pediatricians and other eye doctors.
At the FOCUS Center Dr. Sarah Lane provides a variety of services including:
- Pediatric Eye Examinations
- Developmental Optometric Evaluations
- Functional Optometric Evaluation
- Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation Evaluations
- Vision Therapy for Children and Adults
- Vision Rehabilitation for Children and Adults
Dr. Lane’s style of care is holistic. Her philosophy holds that the eyes and vision are part of the whole body process. She helps you work to understand how making improvements on your visual skills can change your life. Dr. Lane has extended her training beyond traditional Optometric care, to include study of reflex integration and yoga. The addition of reflex integration and movement into the practice allows Dr. Lane to more completely address how vision difficulties are impacting daily life and allows her to work with children from birth and up, as well as people with more involved disabilities.
Many people Dr. Lane works with have been struggling with vision issues for a long time. Previous evaluations with traditional eye doctors that reveal “perfect vision” often delay the process of addressing a developmental/ functional vision issue.
A young child who is experiencing vision difficulty may show behavior or attention concerns. A child who sees double or blurry often can not articulate the problem, which leads to frustration and other behavior issues. A person who struggles with letter reversals when reading and writing may be experiencing a vision problem. Addressing the vision problem often leads to complete resolution of the concerns.
Dr. Lane routinely works with people who have strabismus (esotropia or exotropia), amblyopia (lazy eye), convergence insufficiency and oculomotor dysfunction. Many of the vision problems Dr. Lane detects can be overlooked by a traditional eye evaluation. Dr. Lane’s evaluation goes far beyond 20/20 eye sight and healthy eyes. Additional testing is done to assess eye focusing, eye teaming and eye tracking as well as visual perceptual abilities.
