Dr Valerie Lam OD FAAO FCOVD
Dr. Lam is passionate about treating vision problems that interfere with children’s ability to read, learn, and pay attention.
Some common conditions that she treats are convergence insufficiency, reading difficulties including tracking problems, double vision, lazy eye (amblyopia), and crossed/wandering eyes (strabismus).
She also treats vision problems that result from a traumatic head injury, surgery, or concussion. Dr. Lam provides non-surgical treatment to these conditions through Vision Therapy, a custom program of exercises to strengthen the eyes and brain to eliminate vision problems.
Dr Lam completed her Pediatrics and Vision Therapy residency at the Southern California College of Optometry, at Marshall B. Ketchum University. She then pursued her fellowship from the American Academy of Optometry and the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
