Welcome to the practice of Dr. Iole Taddei, Developmental Optometrist. Dr. Taddei has over 30 years' experience in both traditional and developmental optometry.

Whether you're dealing with a learning/reading disability, traumatic brain injury, stroke or aging eyes, our goal is to take your vision beyond 20/20 by evaluating how you process information, your visual perception ability and how your vision integrates with your other senses.

Vision is the ability to identify, interpret and understand what is seen; eyesight is merely the ability to see. Although your eyesight may test “normal”, your visual skills may be seriously impaired.
Eighty percent of learning is through the visual system. According to the Better Vision Institute, school eye screenings generally miss 70-80% of children's vision problems. Undetected vision problems may cause a child to dislike reading, resulting in learning difficulties, slow performance or fatigue. Visual problems can cause a child to be labeled as “slow” or even ADD.
Some visual problems cannot be treated adequately with just glasses or contact lenses, and are best treated through a vision therapy program. It is important to the child (or the adult) to realize the cause of their reading problem. Early detection is extremely important in addressing a proper multi-disciplinary team approach to treatment. Vision Therapy can help treat associated eye tracking, eye teaming, eye focusing and visual processing deficits.

Dr. Taddei's Philosophy
Dr. Taddei believes that how we perceive the world determines our behavior, who we take ourselves to be and how we live our lives. She feels that there is a very close link between our vision and how we view ourselves. Therefore, our vision affects not only what we see, but how we see it and how we see ourselves. That, in turn, affects how we function in both our internal and external worlds. In helping you to improve your vision, Dr. Taddei can also help you to see yourself with more clarity, kindness and love. It is her creed that we all have the innate ability to heal ourselves and that often, all that is missing is a well-trained, caring professional; a knowledgeable guide to point us on the right path. Dr. Taddei has made it her life's work to be that guide. As Marcel Proust said, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."
There's more to healthy vision than 20/20 eyesight!
