Gabrielle Family Vision Care offers vision care for children and adults. We are located in Kirkland, near highway 405. We have four areas of service.
1. Children & Teen Eye Exams
The AOA recommends infants receive their first eye exam by 6-12 months old, then again at 2-3 years old, and then every 1-2 years thereafter.
It’s important to diagnose and treat visual conditions early, to ensure proper visual development and prevent vision loss due to eye disease or hereditary factors. Pediatric exams often require more patience and creativity, and Dr. Gabrielle enjoys making the exam fun while obtaining all the necessary results. Our aim is to make the visit productive and stress-free for both the child and the parents.
2. Adult Eye Exams and Vision Care
We offer a full range of vision care for your whole family:
3. Vision Therapy
Dr. Gabrielle specializes in vision therapy, which is effective in the treatment of physiological, neuromuscular and perceptual dysfunctions of the vision system. Vision therapy addresses many problems related to learning and behavior. We work with patients with special needs (eg. autism, ADHD, non-verbal patients) and those affected by traumatic brain injury (eg. patients who have had a stroke or head injury). Vision therapy sessions are typically 45 minute weekly visits.
4. Patients with Special Needs
Patients with autism, ADHD, traumatic brain injury and other special needs require a special approach. They are often apprehensive, exhibit unusual behaviors and can become easily upset. Our clinic schedules 2 hour exams so there is time to make the patient feel comfortable. This entire time is spent face to face with the doctor as we do not utilize technicians during the exam.
We regularly work with patients with special needs and have developed a special approach to build rapport, help them feel comfortable and even start to enjoy themselves. We avoid forcing a patient to take eye drops but gradually put them at ease so they are willing to be part of the decision. If patients are having trouble concentrating, we take a break, often playing with toys to keep their mood positive. We co-manage with other providers like occupational therapists and speech therapists and can refer to other providers as appropriate.
