About Us

Dr. Fox started his practice in 1986, and since then we have grown to become a thriving vision therapy practice. The Staff and Dr. Fox are passionate about working with patients of all ages to help them reach their maximum visual potential.

Our Doctors, Therapists, and Administrative staff work together to help provide vision care for visual deficits that are not treatable with eyeglasses alone. Behavioral Optometry provides a holistic, integrated approach to treating the vision system.

By understanding how vision is affected by genetics, the environment, stress, and trauma, our team works together to create an individualized program of care designed to treat vision deficits such as tracking, focusing, convergence, among other concerns.

Dr. Fox is BRILIANT! After years of poor vision and several disappointing visits to other eye doctors and specialists, he was able to nail my vision problems which were overlooked or not bothered to be consider. He developed the correct eyeglass script for me. Way to go, guys!

I highly recommend Fox Vision Development Center. I was diagnosed with Exotropia, attended weekly vision therapy with Dr. McKenzie Symons for 10 months. My case was complex to say the least. Dr. McKenzie Symons was amazing!! There were days that my eye didn’t want to respond to therapy, she was encouraging, calming, compassionate and ALWAYS professional. She knew exactly what exercise to work on during therapy to get both eyes responding and working together. She knew how to challenge me with the many new concepts which she learned at the various training conferences she attended. I remember taking my children to Disney when they were little and not understanding how excited they were with the 3D experiences as I couldn’t see 3D at the time. Now with therapy I have experienced what 3D is. I recently had my 3 month evaluation with Dr. McKenzie Symons and my eyes look great!

I took my daughters here today. We saw Dr. McKenzie. She was great and personable! My daughters are both under 5 and she was great with both of them. She took the time to answer our questions and complete thorough eye exams. They recommended places for us to go to get their glasses, too. All of the staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with.

Fox Vision Development offers wonderful evaluation and treatment of vision problems. Dr. Fox is a knowledgeable doctor with a great approach and attitude to patient care. Right from the start I could feel his compassion and sense his will to analyze my problem and provide both short term solutions and a long-term plan. Immediately Dr. Fox provided some prisms that negated my double vision, instantly I could drive again and enjoy other life activities without double vision. The long-term plan consisted of various exercises and home drills combined with in office therapy. I was assigned to Dr. McKenzie who was very positive and would adjust my plan as she witnessed any limitations and weakness. My home plan was always changing to develop different skills as my vision changed and helped keep things exciting. I highly recommend Fox Vision Development for your vision needs. Brian Shea

My vision had been 20/200 for 30+ years. Dr Fox reduced the prescription slightly and balanced my eyeglass perscription. My vision is 20/100 in each eye separately and 20/80 with my eyes working together. My eyes actually work together better. It is not a strain reading down a page. All the speed reading classes my mother sent me to as a kid, I naturally gravitate to now.

Dr. Fox literally changed my life. I lived with pretty severe vision problems for the past six years due to some serious head injuries. I urge you to give them a visit if you have experienced anything similar. He really worked a miracle for me when I thought there was never a way to fix it. I am forever grateful to Dr. Fox and his associates!
