Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and 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
  • visual processing

Vision Therapy can be the answer to many visual problems. It is adminsitered in our office under the guidance of our doctor. Sometimes a number of office visits are required over a period ranging from several weeks to several months. Usually the patient performs several exercises in the office and also at home to reinforce the developing visual skills.

Eye Conditions Treated WithVision Therapy

Poor Binocular Coordination
Vision Therapy helps individuals develop normal coordination and teamwork of the two eyes known asbinocular vision. When the two eyes fail to work together as an effective team, performance in many areas can suffer.

Strabismus and Amblyopia
Vision Therapy programs offer much higher cure rates for strabismus or turned eyes,and amblyopia or lazy eye,when compared to eye surgery, glasses, and/or patching, without therapy. The earlier the patient receives Vision Therapy the better, however, our office has successfully treated patients well past 21 years of age.

Stress-induced Visual Difficulties

Children and adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and home. Computer Vision Syndrome is one of the fastest growing health concerns in the woirkplace today. Environmental stresses on the visual system can induce eyestrain, headaches and visual difficulties which can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or vision therapy.

Visual Rehabilitation for Special Populations

Vision can be compromised as a result of neurological disorders or trauma to the nervous system. Traumatic brain injuries, stroke, whiplash, developmental delays, cerebral palsy or multiple sclerosis can all lead to compromised vision. Vision Therapy can effectively treat the visual consequences of trauma.

Sports Vision Improvement
Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. Accurate vision and athletic visual skills can be measured, developed, and enhanced through Vision Therapy. We measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral awareness, eye teaming, focusing, tracking, and visualization skills.
