In the words of one of our 4D parents...

"The staff at 4D are amazing and they have helped my children immensely!  My children were struggling in school and reading, writing and spelling...and the progress is outstanding!  I cannot say enough good things about 4D."  ~ Michael K.

"We help children and adults who have vision issues that interfere with their ability to read, to comprehend, to learn, to work, and even pay attention."

In 2009, Dr. Collier, a Behavioral Optometrist (or Developmental Optometrist), established the Optometric Vision Therapy Team with the goal of making this program of care more accessible to patients with medical insurance in the central region of Connecticut and beyond. Since then, Dr. Collier has opened her own practice in Cromwell, CT.  She and her Vision Therapy team have provided an effective and practical solution for people of all ages who seek to enhance their vision and improve their daily lives. What started as a service only offered two days a week has now expanded to six days a week to accommodate more people.

What is Optometric Vision Therapy?

Optometric Vision Therapy is a treatment program that is supervised by a Behavioral Optometrist (or Developmental Optometrist), to correct specific visual challenges faced by children and adults.

The Goals of Our Optometric Vision Therapy Team

Our goals are to:

  • Provide individualized Vision Therapy programs through one-on-one Vision Therapy sessions and exercises prescribed for each person’s unique visual needs.
  • Serve a wide range of patients of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse, experienced, and highly-trained team of Vision Therapists.
  • Spread awareness of the role that vision has in learning and academic achievement by becoming involved in the school system.
  • Communicate effectively with patients’ families, teachers, occupational therapists, healthcare providers, and other caregivers to provide a comprehensive and well-rounded service to our patients.

We are a team of highly educated, motivated, caring professionals who are passionate about how Vision Therapy can improve the lives of our patients.

We provide each patient with an individualized program that will meet his or her specific needs and assist persons of all ages with every step of the visual correction process.
