What Is Vivid Vision?

Vision therapy is a series of exercises that train your brain and eyes to work together more effectively. With the new Vivid Vision virtual reality headset and software, you are able to progress in your training while playing exciting and immersing games, whether at the Joplin practice or even from the comfort of your own home.

Some of the parents tell us that their kids love Vivid so much they play more than the required time. Because this revolutionary product allows the patient to work on their vision training outside of the office, we have seen a marked improvement in progress for our patients using vivid.

How Does Vivid Vision Work?

Vivid Vision uses virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung GearVR, and Google Daydream to treat amblyopia, strabismus, convergence disorders, and other binocular vision problems.

Vivid can be used in the practice as part of your training, at home to compliment and speed up your training, or as part of a custom at home based vision therapy program.

From What Age Can Vivid Be Used?

Vivid is recommended from 5 and up, and in our experience children love the option to play games as part of their therapy.

What is The Time Frame And Cost?

For Vivid Vision to successfully treat Binocular/Convergence issues it must be a part of a more intensive vision therapy program. At Coleman Vision we have developed different Vision Therapy programs that are tailored to each patients needs. Each patient will require a different amount of time and incur different costs. In general the cost of vision therapy is not covered by insurance (with some exceptions).

I Live Far From A Doctor That Specializes In Vision Therapy, What Should I Do?

We have developed a special program for patients that live too far away from the practice to do regular vision therapy sessions. For more information about our “at home vision therapy” program, give us a call. Our expert team will assess if your or your child is a candidate for remote vision therapy, after which they will send you more information about the program.

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
