Welcome to Pupils Vision Development & Rehabilitation
Let us help you see the world better.
At Pupils Vision Development & Rehabilitation, we are thrilled to enhance our patient’s quality of life by improving visual coordination and perception. We are dedicated to providing the gold-standard Vision Therapy experience: office-based therapy with highly trained vision therapists operating under the guidance of trained optometrists.
Vision Therapy corrects certain vision problems and skills.
Vision Therapy is physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many visual problems that can interfere with reading, learning, educational instruction and sports.
Get the benefits of office-based therapy in your home.
In many cases, Vision Therapy can be provided via remote access. Our patients can link to each therapist’s or doctor’s virtual waiting room via a secure connection. Contact our office for more details.
Approximately 60% of the brain is required for visual processing.
Vision guides and directs almost every motor action we do. Reading, walking, catching a ball, reaching for a glass of water, and writing all require vision to guide and direct hand movements, leg movements and balance.

Their eyes work with their bodies now. I couldn’t be more pleased
My identical twin boys were having issues reading and transferring information from the board to their own papers in grade 1. They were also unwilling to learn to ride a bike and often touched things beyond what would be considered normal behavior. Vision therapy was recommended by a family friend who had a daughter who had benefited from it. After the assessment, my boys were diagnosed with delayed visual systems, and we began our VT journey with Christy as our therapist. Christy showed patience, energy, and compassion as we worked… Read more “Their eyes work with their bodies now. I couldn’t be more pleased”
A profound impact on my quality of life
Working with the Pupils Vision Therapy team has had a profound impact on my quality of life. Through regular check-ups with Dr. Wareham and vision therapy sessions with Katrina, I have had the opportunity to better understand and strengthen my visual system. Dr. Wareham and Katrina are very knowledgeable and approachable, and they have continually provided me with helpful and genuine feedback. In particular, I have greatly appreciated their honesty, boundless curiosity, and willingness to answer my many questions. Overall, working with this team is helping me to live my… Read more “A profound impact on my quality of life”
Our seven-year-old son has had difficulty with reading and writing since Jr. Kindergarten
Our seven-year-old son has had difficulty with reading and writing since Jr. Kindergarten. A psycho-educational assessment recommended Visual Therapy through Pupils Vision Therapy, a provider that has shown success in many of their students in the past. Dr. Wareham found that our son had: Ocular Motor Dysfunction, Accommodative Infacility, and Binocular-Vergence Dysfunction. He explained what these meant and how they could be corrected. He suggested a 24-week program where we would meet once a week with our therapist Tiffany who would explain and preview the “homework” for the upcoming week.… Read more “Our seven-year-old son has had difficulty with reading and writing since Jr. Kindergarten”
My vision therapy with Tiffany was a game-changer in the improvements that I’ve made with my post-concussion syndrome. She worked so hard to get me to where I am today and was such a positive person to have on my treatment team! I feel so blessed to have had her as my vision therapist!
After struggling for years with the double vision
After struggling for years with the double vision I finally met Tiffany. Her passion for her work was clear from the first day, and it’s that confidence in Vision Therapy that gave me hope that I had finally found the solution to my vision problems. Tiffany’s careful attention to each of her patient’s needs was obvious as we discovered that my case was unique. Her dedication to my success was the reason I did not give up hope when faced with training obstacles. Working with Tiffany has taught me so… Read more “After struggling for years with the double vision”
One of the most constructive activities
Honestly, Vision Therapy has been one of the most constructive activities in assisting Xavier’s development in my honest opinion!
I can’t thank them enough!
In January 2015, I suffered a concussion at my work. In the two years following my concussion I had ongoing physiotherapy and occupational therapy, and I spent six weeks at the Toronto Rehabilitation Centre Head Institute undergoing intensive rehabilitation from a multidisciplinary approach. Two years after my concussion I still had daily headaches. I was unable to cope in busy, noisy or stimulating environments, and I couldn’t handle many visual stimuli (such as bright lights, moving screens, scrolling on computers). I couldn’t multi-task (something I had previously excelled at). I… Read more “I can’t thank them enough!”
Constant positive reinforcement, free of the judgment
My experience as someone dealing with recovering from a multi-year concussion at the clinic was really great. To be fully honest, my family was skeptical of the whole process, but once I had an appointment with Dr. Wareham, that changed. He helped me describe symptoms that I had previously struggled to put into words and believed everything I said about what I was experiencing. Not only did this help me with my own self-acceptance, it also helped my parents understand what I was struggling with and the reality and all-encompassing… Read more “Constant positive reinforcement, free of the judgment”
I knew that something was wrong
I knew that something was wrong with how I learned and had lots of problems in school. I was having a hard time seeing things on the board from my seat and I would write outside the lines and edge of the paper. Now that I learned that my brain and my vision were not working together, after completing vision therapy, I am doing better in school and I believe in my abilities. Now I am able to see the ball better when I am in net as a goalie… Read more “I knew that something was wrong”
I did my therapy through Skype
I suffered a sport-related concussion in 2013. After 3 years of trying other therapies and still having daily symptoms (including headaches, light sensitivity, and dizziness), my specialist referred me to Pupils Vision Therapy and Dr. Wareham. From my first visit, it was clear that he and his staff have extensive experience with concussion patients, including long-term sufferers like me. He understood when I tried to explain my sometimes difficult to explain symptoms and was very kind and patient with me. After a few visits and tries with prescription glasses without… Read more “I did my therapy through Skype”
I am grateful for this type of treatment
I was in a car crash on the 401 over 3.5 years ago. Finally, 8 months after the crash, I was diagnosed with a concussion- mild traumatic brain injury. Since that accident I have struggled with balance, dizziness, memory, and cognition issues, plus other concussion symptoms. I heard Dr. Wareham speak at a Brain Injury Conference a year after my diagnosis. I subsequently had the neuro-optometric visual testing done. The results were that my eyes were significantly “out of alignment”. One eye deviated up and the other went down. One eye… Read more “I am grateful for this type of treatment”
The world is now his oyster
We are so grateful for the care that Dr. Wareham and Amanda provided for our son. He was in grade 2 and barely knew his letters and certainly could not read. He started to become a behavior problem in school, and at home, due to sheer frustration. We had already employed a specialized tutor but that just added to his frustration. When I reached out to the school Resource Teacher she asked if we would be willing to take him for a Vision Assessment. I explained that I had taken… Read more “The world is now his oyster”
My quality of life has improved
I suffered injuries in a car accident and was not able to get any help from my confusing vision symptoms until I was referred to Dr. Wareham, and the vision therapy program. While I still continue to have some visual symptoms, the vision therapy has allowed me to have much better control over my eyes and my quality of life has improved as a result. I can now tolerate being in a moving vehicle with less symptoms and anxiety, I am able to shop for items in a store with… Read more “My quality of life has improved”
I now love to read
When our daughter Eriann was in grade one we started to notice her difficulty in learning how to read, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying. We could see the effort she was making and her eagerness to learn, however, for a reason that we couldn’t explain she wasn’t learning to read. She finished grade one at a reading level at half a grade behind, something that was concerning for us as her parents but not something the school thought required additional help or testing. She had regular eye… Read more “I now love to read”
Aiden has gained more confidence
My son, Aiden, had trouble in school. He told me that when he read, the words were jumbled. We went to our eye doctor but he said all was fine and nothing notable for vision was discovered. It was only through the psycho-ed assessment that it was suggested he had Irlens and dyslexia. When we chatted with friends, they had taken their son to Dr. Wareham to relax his eyes so that he could focus on the words. We went to the appointment and set up a schedule of vision… Read more “Aiden has gained more confidence”
Vision Therapy made my life easier
Vision Therapy made my life easier. It made me feel special. I was treated nicely and fairly. It had stuff that I really liked, like Nerf guns, chalk, a trampoline, and all sorts of stuff. I made new friends, like Christy, Adam and Dr. Wareham. I got more into reading because now it is easier for me. It helped me be a better writer. I can write smaller and a little neater. It made my vision strong. I can focus on things better. I really liked it.
Vision therapy has opened up my Whole World
When Christy, my vision therapist, first asked me if I would write a testimonial, I remembered how reading about the other patient’s success made me feel more comfortable about starting the process and I readily agreed. But as I sat down to put words to paper, I faced two challenges – first, how to adequately describe how vision therapy completely, utterly and absolutely changed my entire life, and second, how to do it without writing a novel! I tried and gave up a few times and then decided to wait… Read more “Vision therapy has opened up my Whole World”
Thank you to everyone at Pupils Vision!
I had glasses for a few years when I was younger, but they didn’t seem to be helping me at all, so I stopped wearing them for a while. My eyes were constantly tired though, and I had a very hard time focusing on things, which became a real problem when I started driving. I finally decided to go back to my optometrist, and they said that just having a new pair of glasses wouldn’t benefit me. They referred me Pupils Vision for Vision Therapy. My parents and I were… Read more “Thank you to everyone at Pupils Vision!”
A Grateful Mother
Asher is a totally different child after completing Vision Therapy at Pupils Vision in Kanata with the amazing Sherri-Lynn. Asher has dyslexia, ADHD and a learning disorder, so struggles tremendously in school. We were looking for a program to aid us with Asher’s dyslexia, as his learning was two grade levels below in reading and in most subjects. It was our ophthalmologist that suggested vision therapy to us from Smith Falls. It was the best decision that we have ever made for Asher’s learning. He has made huge strides under… Read more “A Grateful Mother”
