What is vision therapy?
Vision therapy is an individualized treatment program prescribed by a doctor to improve certain eye conditions. These eye conditions may affect visual comfort, visual clarity, depth perception, eye movements, eye focusing, and much more. Vision can impact an individual’s performance in school, work, sports and all activities that require the gift of sight. Here are some conditions that may benefit from vision therapy and a comprehensive eye health exam.
What conditions can benefit from Vision therapy?
Do I have these conditions? What are the symptoms?
Can vision problems affect your learning?
Yes. Majority of learning is done through vision. And many skills including eye focusing, movement, teaming, as well as visual perception interfere with the learning ability to a great extent. An individual with normal intelligence and 20/20 vision may still have learning-related vision problems.
How can I get vision therapy?
A full comprehensive eye examination must be completed by your eye doctor before a visual skills assessment can be conducted to determine whether you are a good vision therapy candidate. If you are interested in vision therapy service and do not have a regular optometrist, you are welcome to see one of our great doctors.
If you are a candidate, the vision therapy doctor will prescribe and supervise an individualized vision therapy program for your specific needs. The one-hour, in-office vision therapy sessions are typically scheduled over a 15-20 week period or longer. In addition, therapy is supplemented by daily “homework” activities prescribed by the the therapist between in-office visits.
