Helping You See the Distance

Vision therapy is an individualized treatment plan designed to strengthen ocular muscles through a variety of exercises and activities. Vision therapy programs help correct visual-motor and perceptual-cognitive deficiencies by enhancing the brain’s ability to control:

  • Eye alignment
  • Eye-tracking and eye teaming
  • Eye focusing abilities
  • Eye movements
  • Visual Processing

Vision therapy sessions include the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. Repetitive use of exercises and activities strengthen visual skills and integrate them with fine-tuned motor skills.

Who Is Vision Therapy For?

Both children and adults can benefit from vision therapy. The most common ailments that vision therapy can help correct are:

  • Poor binocular (2-eyed) coordination
  • Convergence insufficiency
  • Misaligned eyes

Binocular vision is a term to describe how the eyes coordinate. If the eyes don’t work together, vision problems can develop that make daily tasks difficult. Vision therapy can help to develop normal coordination and teamwork of both eyes, helping to promote good depth perception and avoid troubles with reading, sports, and eye contact.

Convergence insufficiency is a condition where the eyes can’t work together when focusing on nearby objects. This condition is characterized by one eye turning outward, creating double or blurred vision when looking at something up close.

Recent studies have shown that vision therapy is a suitable and effective treatment for convergence insufficiency.

Certain conditions such as amblyopia (“lazy eye”), diplopia (double vision), and strabismus (crossed eyes) can create vision problems and make it difficult to focus on objects. Vision therapy exercises can help correct eye misalignment and provide relief from associated symptoms.

Vision therapy can help correct a myriad of issues. If you think vision therapy may be right for you, give us a call today!
