Our Story

Minnesota Vision Therapy Center started in 1995 when founder Dr. Lori Mowbray envisioned (pun intended) a place where clinical expertise could blend with compassionate care to produce life-changing results for people facing functional vision problems.

Today, we’re one of the most in-demand clinics in the country and are a national leader in both diagnosis and treatment.

Why have thousands of families trusted MVTC?  It starts with our results.  When measuring the increase in visual function and patient feedback, we’ve found a 95% success rate. 

Here’s why we’re the best at what we do:

  • Thorough evaluations with thoughtful, precise diagnoses.
  • A proven process with customized treatment plans.
  • The most skilled, supportive therapists in the industry—all board-certified.
  • An administrative team that makes the whole process a breeze.
