What is Vision Therapy?
Vision Therapy is a series of prescribed exercises done in the office for visual problems that cannot be helped with glasses or contact lenses alone. Vision therapy is similar to physical therapy for the eyes. Vision disorders are systematically corrected to improve patients' visual function and performance. Vision therapy strengthens the connection between the eyes and the brain, creating lifelong changes.
Vision therapy treats problems adults and children have when using their eyes up close, especially at school or work. Eye tracking, eye teaming, and eye focusing problems make it impossible for children and adults to read, learn, and remain on task. Vision therapy also corrects lazy, crossed, or wandering eyes. Eighty percent of what we see, comprehend, and remember depends on the visual system, therefore, the benefits of vision therapy affect every aspect of life.
