VISION THERAPY



Some vision conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses or patching, and are best resolved through a program of Vision Therapy. Our evaluations determine the patient’s ability to take in visual information efficiently and process visual information accurately. Vision Therapy is then prescribed when needed to treat specific deficits diagnosed in eye alignment, focus, tracking, eye teaming coordination, visual perception and visual information processing. These are the vision abilities you need for successful performance in school, work, driving, sports and everyday life.

Vision Therapy -- a type of physical therapy for the eyes and brain -- is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye, crossed eyes, double vision, convergence insufficiency and some reading and learning difficulties.

Vision therapy is a progressive program of vision procedures performed under doctor supervision and individualized to fit the visual needs of each patient. "VT" is generally conducted in-office, in once or twice weekly sessions of 30 minutes to an hour and supplemented with procedures done at home between office visits.
