Parents, do not be afraid of vision theropy, it does work!!!!

I took my daughter Samantha, to Coleman Vision Improvement Center to have her tested for problems that she was having at school. She would not read well, and her grades went from A's to D's in 2nd grade. She had head aches and would write her letters and numbers backwards. She felt like she was a failure and that she was unable to suceed in anything that she did. Dr Coleman did a vision evaluation and told us she needed vision theorpy to correct her problems. At first I was not liking the idea because the sessions were so expensive and my insurance would not pay for it. I found that Dr. Coleman's staff was excellent in setting up payment plans that were to my liking and it took the stress off my family. You find that his staff gives you a feeling of family as if they were apart of your own family unit. They gave Samantha a desk for her at school to work with and I purchased a pair of relaxing reading glasses from them to help her eyes relax. They came in on time as they said they would. I found that his staff worked with me well in what ever problem that had and they always made it right. Parents if you are debating vision theorpy, I can tell you it is worth every penny. My daughter is finishing up her 40 week session this week. When I brought her in to Coleman Vision Center, she was at 1.6 reading level in the second grade and did not make any of her AR reading goals. She now is at a 3.1 level in second grade has met every AR goal this year. She now makes A's and B's, and has a great days at school. She loves to read again, go to the library and attend book fairs. She now says, "Yes I can!" instead of saying, "No I can't." I want to thank Dr. Coleman and his staff for making a difference in my daughter's life where reading and learning is now fun again. Parents, do not be afraid of vision theropy, it does work!!!!

To Our Patient Family,

Based on federal and state recommendations, many offices have voluntarily moved to a temporary model of care where they are reducing or eliminating routine vision care, particularly for at-risk populations, while still allowing urgent care for their patients.

After careful consideration we have made the decision to follow these recommendations until April 3rd, at which time we will re-evaluate.

So what does that mean?

To minimize the spread of COVID-19 our physical office will be temporarily closed to routine vision appointments.  We will have both Doctors and staff in the office Tuesday – Thursday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm to answer questions, place contact lens orders and schedule urgent/emergency patients by phone.

We are offering to extend contact lens prescriptions if necessary, to make sure our patients have enough supply until our quarantine lifts.

Both Dr. David and Dr. Jeff are still available for red eyes, sudden vision changes, injuries, and other urgent issues for both new and established patients.  Please feel free to call our office between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Tuesday – Thursday.

Our doctors will be providing Tele-health for your convenience and extended care.  We will also be offering extended services for our vision therapy patients.

If you have glasses ordered or glasses that are ready for pick up, we ask that you call ahead and schedule a time to pick those up. Once you have arrived, call the office for check-in, and we will deliver and adjust your glasses at your car.  Contacts and vitamins that are available for pickup will follow same check-in process.

As always, we genuinely care for our patients and want the very best for each of you.  If you need us, or have questions about your specific situations; please feel free to call the office.  This plan of action could change due to federal or state guidelines and recommendations.  Please monitor our Facebook page for updates.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter.


Dr. David Coleman & Dr. Jeff Coleman
