What is Syntonics?

After a car accident, our bodies sometimes respond with symptoms such as light sensitivity, anxiety, focusing issues, and other visual impairments. Syntonics, a form of “light therapy,” involves exposing the patient to certain prescribed light frequencies to stimulate biochemistry of the brain. This in turn can help alleviate some of these symptoms as well as improve mood, focus/concentration, and visual field constrictions associated with stress, brain injury, and trauma. Syntonic therapy’s colored lights stimulate the visual system and can help bring balance to the sympathetic (“fight or flight”) and parasympathetic (“rest and digest”) nervous systems.

Proven Results for Over 70 Years

Syntonics or optometric phototherapy, is the branch of ocular science dealing with the application of selected light frequencies through the eyes. It has been used clinically for over 70 years in the field of optometry with continued success in the treatment of visual dysfunctions, including strabismus (eye turns), amblyopia (lazy eye), focusing and convergence problems, learning disorders, and the aftereffects of stress and trauma. In recent years, Syntonics has been shown to be effective in the treatment of brain injuries and emotional disorders.

Interest in the effect of light on the body intensified earlier this century. Most of the current therapeutic techniques used in Syntonics are based on the work done by Dr. Harry Riley Spitler in the 1920s and 1930s. Dr. Spitler, who had both optometric and medical degrees, began researching and using phototherapy in 1909. Spitler, the author of “The Syntonic Principle”, conceived the principles for a new science that he called “Syntonics”. Syntonics, from the word Syntony (to bring into balance), refers physiologically to a balanced, integrated nervous system.

Certain biochemical conditions in the brain need to be present before effective cortical plasticity and new functions can occur. Neurotransmitters trigger this biochemistry and allow for additional synaptic connections to initiate movement and growth in new directions. Colored light therapy can act as a powerful tool to stimulate the biochemistry of the brain through the visual system by way of the retinal-hypothalamus brain connection.

In conjunction with vision therapy, Syntonics can help reverse visual dysfunctions such as:

Strabismus (eye turn)

“Lazy” eyes

Convergence issues

Divergence issues

Focusing issues

Lyme disease

Traumatic Brain Injury

Other neurological diseases and disorders

Reverse Visual Issues
"I met with Dr. Strut and he thought that he could fix it for me. He's been giving me the injections in my ankle, and it no longer buckles. I think three months ago he started, and it's been good ever since, so I'm very, very, very happy."

"I been goin for almost 3 years and all the staff has been very pleasant, respectful, and gives awesome customer service. It’s always clean when I walk in. I wouldn’t wanna go anywhere else!!!"


“Dr. Strut’s prolotherapy did wonders for my shoulder. I had a shoulder injury that was from overuse. Dr. Strut's prolotherapy has helped strengthen my shoulder and allowed me to get back to my regular routine quickly."
