About Us

Here at The Vision Development Team, it is our goal to make sure that our patients have the vision skills needed to meet the rigorous demands of school, work, and sports. Optimal vision encompasses more than 20 different skills!  We train VISION beyond 20/20 eyesight.

Vision problems can be due to inefficient eye teaming skills, reduced eye focusing skills, or inadequate visual processing skills.  We are here to help with these skills! Athletes can also benefit from vision training. Dr. Alexandar Andrich & Dr. Angelina Cerny will help you train your eyes to work better and faster to improve your game.

Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff will work with you and customize a vision training program based on your specific needs. We will be sure to discuss your program with you and address any concerns you may have. During your sessions, you will experience a multi-sensory approach to vision skill development.

The improvement in my child in such a short time frame is truly unbelievable. His glasses prescription has even decreased. See attached photos of before and after handwriting samples.

Dr. Cerny has been so amazing with both of my daughters over the years: most obviously with their vision, but also our limitations due to travel, and even their moods. I could not give her higher praise for her work!

Rob and Dr Andrich have been amazing. As an adult with strabismus and double vision, I was under the belief that vision therapy would not help me- I was wrong. I’ve been coming for vision therapy for my double vision which has dramatically improved. My vision therapist, Rob, is great at formulating and modifying exercises to help me improve my vision. He really cares about what he does and I’ve never met someone more knowledgeable in this area. We are so lucky to have vision therapy available in our area.

My husband went here after having a stroke. He was having vision issues as a result. They really gave him alot of tools on how to identify, focus, repair, rebuild the weaknesses he was visually having. Kris was by far his favorite to work with, their personalitys hit it off from the start! Kris was understanding, helpful in pushing him to do the work, and tough (in a fun way, that's what he needed) continuing to challenge him so he could continue to SEE better results!! I would highly recommend them to anyone having vision challenges! We are so happy with the improvements he has made from the short amount of time he went to therapy here. In fact we were so impressed we decided to go for additional sessions just because we knew how much it was helping him get back to "feeling like himself again"!! Thanks Kris and The Vision Development Team!!

We have been going here for a couple of months now for vision therapy. My daughter usually takes time to warm up to adults and she is very selective about who she warms up to. I was wowed when I saw how quickly she warmed up to Dr. Andrich, Patti and Carly. They are so patient and good with her. She can feel how much they truly care about her as a person, not just a patient. She goes every week and works with Carly and is eager to go (not typical for her to want to go to other therapies). She works hard and has fun. In fact, she is the one that said “Mom, you have to give Carly 5 stars. She is the BEST!” Highly recommended!
