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.
