Vision & Conceptual Development Center
The Vision & Conceptual Development Center is a neuro-developmental optometry office that specializes in various visual therapies for patients of all ages. We offer a holistic approach to vision, enhancing the way a person uses their visual skills to perform their best in school, sport, and life. We provide:
- Binocular Vision Therapy for oculomotor dysfunction,
- Visuo-Cognitive Therapy for vision-based, developmental learning problems, and
- Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation for traumatic or aquired brain injuries.
Our optometric physicians examine each patient even if previous testing has been done elsewhere. If therapy is recommended, the doctors tailor a treatment plan according to a patient's specific needs. Patients then recieve one-on-one sessions with one of our highly-trained vision therapists. Treatment is usually a combination of both in-office and at-home activities. Periodically, the doctors re-evaluate patients to determine if goals have been met, or if the treatment plan needs modification.
Our Neuro-Developmental Optometry Physicians
Our practice was originally founded in 1996 by the late Harry Wachs, a pioneer in the field of vision therapy. His philosophy continues under the expertise of Dr. Amanda Zeller and Dr. Mehrnaz Azimi Green. After completing their doctorates in optometry, they both embarked upon a journey to help children and adults with complex vision problems. Drs. Zeller and Green have completed hundreds of hours of post-graduate continuing education in pediatric vision, vision development, brain injury, autism, and special needs, in addition to many other specialty areas in vision care. They are among the one percent of optometrists in the United States to be board certified as Fellows of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (FCOVD). Between the two of them, they have over twenty years of experience treating vision issues that go beyond glasses or contact lenses.
While the Vision & Conceptual Development Center see patients from around the world, we primarily serve the greater Washington DC Metropolitan area. Our office is located near the Bethesda Metro Station.
Currently, the only insurance we accept is Medicare Part B. While we are an out-of-network provider, we will be happy to provide documentation (procedure and diagnosis codes) for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
