VISION THERAPY


​Vision therapy is a highly effective, non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye, crossed eyes, double vision, convergence insufficiency, tracking problems,and some reading and learning disabilities.

​A successful vision therapy program can change how a patient processes or interprets visual information and can also help a patient develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities.Many studies have shown that vision therapy can correct vision problems that interfere with efficient reading among schoolchildren. It can also help reduce eye strain and other symptoms of computer vision syndrome experienced by many children and adults.  Vision therapy and sports training can also improve vision skills needed for sports.


Vision problems being treated with vision therapy include:


  • Amblyopia. Also called "lazy eye," amblyopia is a vision development problem where an eye fails to attain normal visual acuity, usually due to strabismus or other problems of eye teaming.


  • Strabismus. The success of vision therapy for strabismus depends on the direction, magnitude and frequency of the eye turn. VT has been proven effective for treating an intermittent form of strabismus called convergence insufficiency, which is an inability to keep the eyes properly aligned when reading despite good eye alignment when looking at distant objects.


  • Other binocular vision problems. Subtle eye alignment problems called phorias that may not produce a visible eye turn but still can cause eye strain and eye fatigue when reading also can be minimized or corrected with vision therapy.


  • Eye movement disorders. Studies have shown vision therapy can improve the accuracy of eye movements used during reading and other close-up work.


  • Accommodative (focusing) disorders. Other research shows near-far focusing skills can be improved with vision training.


  • Other problems. Other vision problems for which vision therapy may be effective include visual-perceptual disorders, vision problems associated with developmental disabilities and vision problems associated with acquired brain injury (such as from a stroke).
