Who We Are
Treatment options beyond your expectations
An accurate diagnosis is the key to effective treatment. Vision is our most complex and dominant sensory system. A fifteen-minute “eye exam” is not enough to determine the cause of your symptoms. We evaluate how you use your visual system, not just the prescription of your eyes. Good vision goes far beyond the ability to see 20/20.
Ocular Performance Training
Whether you are a professional baseball player, an attorney, physician, or student; you're being asked to process more information in less time than ever before.
Your visual system learns how to see. You can train it to see more accurately, learn more quickly, and have better visual endurance with Performance Based Vision Training.
Learning disabilities, acquired brain injury, autism, and other atypical neurological conditions can cause significant challenges, not only for the individual involved but also for the whole family.
Individualized treatment is often necessary for eliminating the visual interferences to one’s quality of life. When a team approach is needed, Vision Therapy can be combined with other therapeutic interventions to provide the most beneficial treatment.
Advanced Visual Therapy
Our Doctor: Dr. Geoffrey Heddle O.D.
Dr. Heddle is a native of Canada. He attended Indiana University's School of Optometry, graduating in 1998.
Upon graduation his goal was to work with athletes. He first practiced in St. Joseph, MI with Dr. Robert Reed, Jr.
His passion for Sports Vision led him to various parts of the country to work with and learn from some of the experts in the field. He practiced in Connecticut, Colorado, Washington D.C. and Maryland.
Along the way he has worked with professional teams of the NFL, NBA and NHL. He has also served as a consultant to private police forces and the NHL officials. Dr. Heddle has become an expert in the field of Sports Vision and has taught Optometrists in Canada, Colombia, Germany, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, and across the United States.
Besides working with athletes, Dr. Heddle has dedicated himself to helping children struggling in school. Most children struggling in school have a visual problem that is impacting their ability to learn in the classroom. Dr. Heddle's passion in this area is so strong in this that he currently teaches other Optometrists how to provide this care. This teaching is performed for the auspices of the Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEPF), which is nearing its 100-year anniversary. The OEPF has a mission to share the knowledge of Optometric care. He is one of the instructors for their clinical curriculum courses of which attendees are from all over the world.
Dr. Heddle is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development and a Fellow of the College of Syntonic Phototherapy. Dr. Heddle is one of just a few Optometrists in the State of Michigan that is a Fellow of both organizations.
