Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy Is a Powerful, Non-Surgical Method to Improve Vision

Useful for Correcting Eye Alignment, Hand/Eye Coordination, & More

Many Americans know the value of vision therapy first hand, where their own vision challenges were solved following its practice. Useful for correcting eye alignment and facilitating eye teaming, as well as improving hand/eye coordination and visual acuity, vision therapy is perhaps the best kept secret in our optical toolbox.

Vision Therapy for Children

Young, Adaptable Minds Respond Best to Vision Therapy

Our most common vision therapy patients are kids. Eye alignment concerns (such as strabismus) can eventually lead to more serious conditions, including amblyopia (Useful for Correcting Eye Alignment, Hand/Eye Coordination, Lazy Eye, & More). Vision therapy works with kids to enable their eyes to overcome their challenges and develop normal vision.

Vision Therapy for Adults

Comfort, Efficiency, Decrease Reaction Times, & More

While our most common vision therapy patients may be kids, vision therapy is quite effective for adults. Used to address many of the same issues as our younger patients, or as a means to improve visual acuity, vision therapy is popular among our adult patients.

More Information About Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is used to treat a variety of visual dysfunctions, from amblyopia (poor vision in one eye) and strabismus (eye turned in or out). Many Americans know the value of vision therapy first hand, where their own vision challenges were solved following its practice. Useful for correcting eye alignment and facilitating eye teaming, as well as improving hand/eye coordination, tracking, focusing and visual acuity, vision therapy is perhaps the best kept secret in our optical toolbox.

Just because a child can read 20/20 at the doctor’s office doesn’t mean that the eyes function efficiently. Problems with focusing, teaming, and tracking are hard to spot without proper training, yet can be the thing that is holding a child back from performing well in school.

Vision therapy can also improve visual processing skills required to understand what the patient is seeing. Aspects of visual perception include visual discrimination, visual memory, spatial relations, and visual motor integration.
