Vision Therapy
 

Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses,

contact lenses and/or patching, and are best resolved through a program

of Vision Therapy.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to

correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. Vision Therapy sessions

include procedures designed to enhance the brain's ability to control:

  • eye alignment,

  • eye teaming,

  • eye focusing abilities,

  • eye movements, and/or

  • visual processing.

 

Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. During the final stages of therapy, the patient's newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.

Who Benefits from Vision Therapy?

Children and adults with visual challenges, such as:

 

  • Learning-related Vision Problems
    Vision Therapy can help those individuals who lack the necessary visual 

       skills for effective reading, writing, and learning (i.e., eye movement and

       focusing skills, convergence, eye-hand activity, visual memory skills, etc.).

  • Stress-induced Difficulties - Blurred Vision, Eyestrain, Headaches, Dizziness, etc.
    21st century life demands more from our vision than ever before.  Many children and adults constantly use their near vision at school, work and home.  Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can induce blurred vision, eyestrain, headaches, etc. To learn about vision therapy for these problems, see:

    • Blurred Vision, Blurry Eyesight - Reading and Computer Work - VT Eye Exercises,

    • Dizziness, Motion Sickness, Eye Strain, Stomachaches, Double Vision...,

    • Eye Strain or Eye Fatigue with Computer Work and Reading - Eye Exercises,

    • Relief of Frequent or Chronic Headaches, Stress, Eyestrain, and/or Stomachaches during or after Reading, School or Office Work.

  • Sports Vision Improvement
    Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. Not much happens in sports until your eyes instruct your hands and body as to what to do! Accurate vision and athletic visual skills can be measured, developed, and enhanced through Vision Therapy. We can measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral awareness, eye teaming, focusing, tracking, and visualization skills (to mention just a few).
