They say their goal is to improve active learning skills and provide children and adults with the tools necessary for success. In addition to routine eye care services, Levin Eye Care Center also treats and rehabilitates patients with lazy eye, misaligned eyes and visual motor complications from a traumatic brain injury.
The eye care center also features a vision therapy program that identifies learning-related vision problems.
“The entire team at Levin Eye Care Center would like to extend our gratitude to all of our loyal patients who voted us Best Vision Care,” Levin said. “We could not have accomplished this without our doctors and staff who are committed to excellence and take pride in the care we offer to each patient.”
Vision Therapy helped me become more coordinated and focused! I love reading and learning in school now.
Victoria’s mother talks about the changes she has seen in her daughter since entering in our vision therapy program at Levin Eye Care Center. Before vision therapy, Victoria found it very difficult to focus on her schoolwork. Learning and reading was very difficult and she could never seem to finish an entire chapter at her reading level. A math assignment would take her an hour and a half to complete. I have Victoria enrolled in Mexican folkloric dance and she would always get frustrated that she couldn’t grasp the steps or coordinate the dance with the rest of the group. At home she would fall or trip often and hurt herself.
The biggest change I have seen is that Victoria is able to finish reading books in their entirety. She has completed various books and loves to tell me about them. Before completing the vision therapy program she took more than an hour to complete a math lesson, now she averages about 40 minutes. She also amazes her dance teacher with her improved coordination.
My daughter is now confident at school and in dance class. She doesn’t doubt herself or make excuses since attending vision therapy. I have seen her love for learning and reading blossom as opposed to before vision therapy she just wanted to get her schoolwork out of the way or find an excuse not to do it. I always knew she had the potential and intelligence to perform well and am very thankful that Dr. Levin offers vision therapy!
Victoria states: “Thank you Levin Eye Care Center for helping fix my eye problems!”
How Vision Therapy has helped me get rid of my chronic migraines and changed my life.
Kristen came to Levin Eye Care Center suffering from almost constant, daily chronic migraines. Her neurologist prescribed her various medications over eight years for her symptoms, but they could only make the daily migraines less powerful, never less frequent and they still occurred daily! Kristen’s neurologist suggested that she get a comprehensive eye exam to see if there might be a visual issue at the root of her problem.
During her comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Levin found Kristen’s problem—her eyes were not working together. This meant that Vision Therapy would help her with her migraines. After, a few weeks of Vision Therapy Kristen noticed her chronic migraines were becoming less intense—with no changes to her medications!
Upon completion of her Vision Therapy at Levin Eye Care Center, Kristen is enjoying a 90% reduction in her migraines, reducing both in intensity and frequency! The vision therapy sessions she undertook and the home exercises she performed have “strengthened her eyes” by making new connections in her brain—more healthy connections that help her avoid the migraines.
I’m ecstatic with the results of Vision Therapy! The staff was amazing and always friendly. This experience has been great, and Vision Therapy is so much fun!

Vision Therapy helped me become more confident and focused!
Before vision therapy John struggled with reading, spelling, handwriting and staying focused. He was also having challenges with emotional outbursts and became frustrated with many areas of daily life and not being focused in school. Dr. Levin prescribed vision therapy, which is a series of designed eye and vision-based exercises to improve John’s fine motor skills in focusing, eye coordination, perception and eye teaming.
Since completing vision therapy, John is more relaxed, calm, and focused. He no longer struggles with schoolwork and has a positive outlook when faced with challenges. John now enjoys reading, writing and completing his homework on time. Also, he is more confident with school activates, sports and friends. School and daily activities are no longer overwhelming and he has exhibited an increase in classroom performance.
Congratulations John! We are very proud of you and look forward to your future accomplishments!

As a boy Marc always dreamed of becoming a pilot. When he was at Purdue University, he decided it was time to pursue his dream and join flight school but didn’t meet the vision requirements. Through a series of designed eye and vision based exercises know as vision therapy training, he could improve his focusing and eye coordination.
After millions of miles flown and many years of being a professional commercial pilot for a major airline, his eyes needed a tune up. Marc’s wife noticed that his eye would wander and get tired toward the end of the day. Marc researched the best vision therapy facility in the Chicagoland area and found Levin Eye Care Center had changed the lives of adults and children for decades.
Dr. Levin and his staff identified the weakness in his left eye, which would drift after hours of working. The vision therapy training sessions at Levin Eye Care Center provided him with the comfortable vision for long flights and days at the airport. Also, he has gained the ability to focus on 3D images after completing vision therapy.
Marc stated: I’m thrilled with the vision therapy program at Levin Eye Care Center and recommend it to anybody needing to improve their vision, focusing and eye coordination.
Karen is a Graduate of the Levin Eye Care Center Vision Therapy Program. Her mother Laurie, is also a graduate of the program and lets us knows the impact it has had on her daughter and her. Learn how Vision Therapy helps this mother and daughter reach new heights and how it can change your child’s life!
I learned the value of vision therapy at a young age. Teachers believed I was learning disabled but the psychological testing proved this to be false and vision issues were explored. Vision therapy was very helpful to me as a child and as an adult I found the need to reconnect with a doctor who understood my unique eye problems. Dr. Levin helped me, and my daughter, Karen with vision therapy.
Karen had a lot of difficulties with learning as a child and into early college. Dr. Levin first saw her as a young adult and recommended vision therapy. Karen has always loved learning but visual problems hindered her reading abilities. Today she is a student at Eastern Virginia Medical School studying to be a Physician Assistant. Students are required to read and retain large volumes of information in a short period of time. She loves the material and has the endurance to study long hours. At the end of her first year she is excelling in this very competitive program.
I am very proud of her hard work and accomplishments and am happy that she has found her passion. She will serve others by providing excellent compassionate care as a Physician Assistant. Vision therapy gave her a foundation that helped make this possible. Thank you Dr. Levin and staff for the excellent eye care you have provided for me, and my family over many years.
Before coming to Levin Eye Care Center’s vision therapy program Karen was struggling to read and concentrate on her schoolwork. Karen would frequently have migraines during and after school that made it difficult to focus.
Struggles with schoolwork
Didn’t enjoy reading
Karen was able focus on her schoolwork and concentrate on her studies after completing the vision therapy program at Levin Eye Care Center. She also had a significant decrease in the amount of migraines and is currently working in the medical field and in graduate school.
