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, during which vision disorders are corrected to improve patients' visual function and performance. Vision therapy strengthens the connection between the eyes and the brain, creating permanent lifelong changes.
Vision therapy treats problems children have when using their eyes up close, especially at school. Eye tracking, eye teaming, and eye focusing problems make it impossible for children 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, not just school performance.
