WHAT IS VISION THERAPY? 

Vision therapy is an individualized treatment program prescribed to eliminate or improve conditions such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), trouble focusing, weak eye teaming and learning related vision disorders. Special lenses, prisms, filters and instruments are used along with specialized instruments and an advanced computer system to train for maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

AND WHEN IS IT NECESSARY?

Although most vision problems can very easily be corrected using eyeglasses or contact lenses, some problems require more sophisticated treatment.
Visual processing problems that interfere with a child’s ability to analyze and interpret visual information require vision therapy. It can also disrupt their potential to learn. Without addressing these issues early on, it can lead to deficiencies and a slow learning process which can affect confidence.
Adults can also benefit from vision therapy if they are experiencing eye strain, headaches and inability to perform well at work.

 

“80% of learning is visual and in order for us to achieve our best potential, good vision is essential.”

“Vision therapy is like physical therapy for the visual system, including the eyes and the parts of the brain that control vision.”

“Vision therapy and sports vision training can improve vision skills needed for sports.”

The vision therapy is administered by well trained therapists under the supervision of an optometrist trained in vision therapy.
In addition to striving to achieve the highest possible success rates, we aim to solve the patient’s problem in as short a period of time as possible.

The average program for focusing, eye teaming and tracking problems involves one to two office visits per week lasting 45 minutes each, and about 15 minutes of supportive home therapy 3 times per week.
Many of theses problems can be eliminated in 15-20 visits. More complicated problems may require additional time. Visual processing problems are more complicated and often require longer periods of therapy.
